Not a sure implication, they may have already been married and set off for new places. I
came across many instances in wills where children aren't mentioned, mostly because
they were already married and set up with what they already needed. One case had oldest
son left for Canada and is not mentioned in will, the 2nd son got half of estate and last
son to get the rest of estate after mother dies.
Probate proceedings can mention more children. Even guardianship records.
