Here is an item from the Maryland State archieves pertaining to a suit brought by Peter Joy concerning what his wife's mother had done with her husband's estate. Apparently Dorothy Goldson had remarried a couple of times and her husband was not following the will with regard to the disposal of Daniel's estate. We are not sure how the entire thing turned out:
78 Provincial Court Proceedings, 1663.
Liber B B To the honble the Gouernor & Councell.
The humble Petn of Peter Joy & John Mirth, Sheweth.
That whereas Daniel Goldson, who was father to yor Petrs wife,
some yeares since departed this life, Left a Considerable Estate in
the hands of Dorothy his Wife, whom by Will hee made his absolute
Execatrix, The wch Estate (as by Will may appeare Relaon being

. DANIEL GOLSON immigrated to Maryland in 1650 and settled on the Patuxent River. He brought with him his wife SARAH GOLSON, and a son MATHEW GOLSON(Patents ABH: 322). According to THE ARCHIVES OF MARYLAND PETER JOY tried to obtain what was due to his wife and her brother " The young DANIEL GOLSON" In the Provincial Court Proceedings of 1663. The record states that DANIEL GOLSON "was father to PETER's Wife, and that when Daniel GOLSEON died he left a considerable estate in the hands of "DOROTHY his Wife"
DOROTHY ______GOLSON was the second wife of DANIEL GOLSON. As a widow DOROTHY married secondly GILES SADLER, an Attorney in Calvert County.
