In another probate record, of Baltimore County, it was noted that by March 12, 1722, Ambrose Nelson had died, leaving a Will. (Compilers Note: It would be a pretty accurate assumption, that Ambrose passed away by early March of 1722. In a Family History of Baltimore County, Dated March 12, 1722, it indicated Ambrose Nelson, Deceased.] Most abbreviated records show a date of August 15,1717; March 12, 1728, but this only means August 15, 1717 as filing or recording of Ambrose's Will, and the date, March 12, 1728, is when Martha Probated original will, son Ambrose Jr. to be Executor, after her death.
