Today in History: R.I.P. Seth Wyman

On this date, December 29, 1827, Col. Seth Wyman, the defendant in Mills v. Wyman, dies at Shrewsbury, Massachusetts.  His second-oldest older son Seth, Jr. (1787-1865), will inherit most of the property and administer the old man's estate.  A picture of Seth, Jr., is here.  The classic story of the case is told by Geoffrey Watson here.
