About Lydia Morgan
Rev. Jacob Heminway married, May 3, 1712, Lydia, daughter of Captain Alling Ball, Jr., of East Haven. She died March 6, 1738, aged 57 years. His second wife, Sarah, survived him.
His only child (by his first marriage) was a daughter, Lydia, who married Hezekiah, the youngest son of the Rev. James Pierpont, of New Haven; after her first husband's early death she was again married to Theophilus Morgan, of Killingworth.
In Mr. Heminway's will, dated April 21, 1746, he bequeathes £20 to the church in East Haven 'for the support of the Lord's Table among them,' and £5 to his daughter; the rest of his estate is given to his wife, with a reversion of the real estate to his grandchildren by his daughter's first marriage. The reason of this somewhat singular testament, is reputed by family tradition to be the fact that his daughter's second husband was a member of the Church of England. The estate was valued at £6556; it is remarkable that no books are mentioned in the inventory.
