      Tarrytown Argus, 1903

      For and in consideration of the services David Williams hath rendered his country in apprehending and securing the British Deputy Adjutant General, Major Andre, who was returning to New York after having in the character of a Spy concerted measures with the infamous Benedict Arnold, then commanding the posts in the Highlands, for betraying the said posts into the hands of the enemy; and for his virtue in refusing a large sum of money offered by the said Major Andre as a bribe to permit him to escape; and for and in consideration of a further sum named, the said Commissioners granted and sold unto him, a certain tract of land late in the possession of Edmund Ward in the town of Eastchester, being altogether 252 J acres, for which the total price was £1,360, 12s., 6p., less the £500 awarded him by the Government. The date of this conveyance was June 16, 1783, but he re-conveyed a portion of the same to Stephen Ward the same year and he may never have lived there, or only for a short time. His purchase of a part of the farm of his father-inlaw, Joseph Benedict, of Lower Salem, 140 acres, for which he paid £640, occurred June 23, 1789; at least he did not take title till that date. In this connection it should be stated, on the authority of Simm's Frontiersmen of New York, to which we are indebted for other data, that David Williams' father, Aert Williams, removed early in the war from near Tarrytown to Cross River, Lower Salem, and lived on lands belonging to Joseph Benedict, whose daughter, his son David, afterwards married. And there he, Aert Williams, continued to reside until his decease.

I leave to my son Francis, 200 acres of land, being a 200 acre lot, lying in the Great Nine Pastures, in Dutchess County, bounded west by the Fish Creek, north by lot 6 of Aert Williams, and south by lot 4 of Aert Williams, during his life and then to his children. If he dies without issue, then to my sons Peter and Cornelius. I leave to my sons Peter and Cornelius, 300 acres of land in Crom Elbow Precinct, bounded west by Fish Kill, north by Aert Williams, south by Aert Williams, and east by the lot called Caele Bergh Lot. My son Peter is to have the north half, and my son Cornelius the south half. I leave to my grand-son Jacobus, son of my son Jacobus, deceased, 100 acres of land, beginning at the north-west corner of 253 acres, which came to my share of the land I purchased with Dolf Banker and Jost Garrison, and to run south along the west bounds till a line parallel to the north bounds will contain 100 acres, being the land improved by his father. I leave to my sons Peter and Cornelius the remainder of said tract, being 153 acres, and all the rest of my real estate. The said lands are charged with the payment of £5 yearly to my brother, Richard Van Dyck, dining his life. I leave to my daughters Magdalena, Margaret, and Catalinta, all my personal estate. I make Jost Garrison, and Magdalena his wife, my daughter, and Richbald Williams and my daughter Margaret his wife, and my daughter Catalinta, executors.
