Beginning of will (already attached to this memorial page) gives a probate date of 5 Jan 1762
Last page of will shows the will's reading date was 17 Oct 1762

Both dates allow one to infer the death date as before 5 Jan 1762. I've seen Quaker records which also report his death as 17 Oct 1762 but the written will (for me) provide the better source.
