Colonel John Stringer of Northampton County

Colonel John Stringer was the presiding justice of the Northampton county court. His last will and testament was an affirmation of his faith. "I bequeathe my soul to God, who first gave it to me, Father, Son and Spirit in Unity and Trinity, and Trinity in Unity, who hath redeemed and preserved me by and through Jesus Christ, and also died for my sinns, and for the sinns of all peoples that truly believe in Him by unfeigned faith and repentance, for whose sake and loving kindness I hope to entertain everlasting life, wherefore, Dear Father, have mercy upon my soul."
