last will and testament, making void all former wills by me at any time made. 

1st.- It is my desire that my body shall be buried in a Christian like manner 
and that my funeral and all other of my just debts shall be paid. 

2nd.- It is my desire that my wife, Diley, and my daughter, Elizabeth, shall 
jointly have the use of the following property during their natural lives and 
that the survivor of  the other shall have the exclusive rights of said 
property during her natural life, The parcel of land on which I now live with 
two hundred acres to be cut off from my track of land called the Bay Place 
next adjoining the land on which I now live together with all the estate of 
horses, hogs, cattle and sheep that I shall not hereafter give away with all 
the farming tools, household and kitchen furniture. 

3rd.- It is my wish that my son, Ervin, shall have the tract of land called 
the Grassy Bay Track, one horse bridle and saddle and at the death of my 
wife, Diley, and daughter, Elizabeth, he shall have all the lands that I have 
given to them.

equally divided between the following married children; Ann, Harriet, Martha,
