On 17 Jan 1744, Concord, MA, a petition was recorded of Shadrach Whitney and Amos Whitney, brothers of Isaac Whitney, late of Concord, glazer, who refuse administration, along with Daniel Whitney, another brother, and desire that Samuel Blood of Concord, a creditor, not be allowed administration, either, but have no objection to creditors Joseph Wright of Concord or Nathaniel Russell of Littleton. On 28 Jan 1744, Concord, MA, Joseph Wright requested that Nathaniel Russell be granted administration. On 4 Feb 1744, Concord, MA, administration was granted to Nathaniel Russell of Littleton, yeoman, with Jonas Russell, Jr., gentleman, and William Barrett, husbandman, both of Westford, sureties.
