Kentucky Wills - Timothy Percival, Sr Settlement

My great-great-great-great-great grandfather, Timothy Percival, died in Boone County, Kentucky June 15, 1815. He didn't leave much. The two things that catch my attention are the watch and the History of New England. Timothy was born in East Haddam, Connecticut. I guess I'll have to dig further into these records!
