About Otto William Wise, the younger

http://espl-genealogy.org/MilesFiles/site/p478.htm#i47790

Why he was named "Otto" is not on record - was his mother of German descent? This might also explain why his eldest brother was a "John Christian" Wise in a time and place where middle names were not yet much used.

He married Sarah (daughter of John) Bonnewell, who was a widow (of Nathaniel Brittingham) with four children. Otto and Sarah apparently had no (surviving) children of their own, as he made bequests in his will to his wife and her Brittingham children (and to his brother John Christian).

Otto made a will before 1 February 1748/49 at Worcester County, MD/Accomack Co, VA. In his undated will (Otto) William (Wiese) Wise gave to wife Sarah land called Wises Addition during her natural life & at her death to Jesse Brittingham. To wife all my negroes & at her death I give to Mary Brittingham, her daughter, negro Hagar. To wife 1/3 part of the Shallop called Sally & Polly. To Sarah Brittingham, her child, 1/3 part of the Shallop. To Mary Brittingham, her child, my daughter-in-law [stepdaughter]. To Beverly Brittingham horse called Prince & 1/3 my Shallop. To brother John Christian Wise. Wife & Robert Pitt, Major I mean, Extrs. Witt: Robert Nairne, William Holland & John Holt.

He died before 1 February 1748/49 at Worcester Co, MD OR at Accomack County, VA. It was on this date that his will was proved (in both jurisdictions?) .
