Will of Jeremiah Harrelson

   In the name of God, Amen.

      I, Jeremiah Harrelson,(of South Carolina, Marion District), being very 
sick and weak of body, but of sound mind and memory, thanks be to God for the 
same, calling to mind the Mortality of my Body, and knowing that it is 
appointed for all men to die.  Do make and ordain this to be my last Will and 
Testament.  First of all, I recommend my body to the earth to be buried at 
the discretion of my friends, and my soul, I recommend to God, who gave it 
nothing doubting but what they will be reunited at the last day and touching 
such worldly goods as it has pleased God leave me with, I give and dispose of 
in the following manner and form. 
   First, I give to my beloved wife, Abigail, one sorrel mare, three sows, 
and one bull calf, two sows with pigs, and four shoats, one feather bed and 
furniture, and all my household furniture, except one feather bed, one saddle 
and bridle, one wheel and cards, one loom, one plow and gin, one ax and hoe.
   Secondly, I give all the rest of my Property to my lawful Heirs to be 
equally divided share and share alike.
