      Ann Hanson, Will, April 8, 1800; October 3, 1800

      To son Samuel Clagett one other tract or parcel of land which I bought of a certain George Dodson containing 114 acres more or less and one adjoining to the before mentioned tract.
      I give the above mentioned lands to my son Samuel Clagett his heirs and assigns as an act of Justice because he sustained much loss by my second marriage.
      To grandson William Edmunds Horner, son of William Horner my house and lott of ground lying at Fauquier Court House with all its a appurtenances to him his heirs and assigns forever.
      Whereas my son Gustavus Brown Horner has given bond for a sum of money due to myself and children by Robert Horner, I give my share of the said bond both principal and interest to my son Gustavus Brown Horner and whereas I have a bond given by my son William Horner for a considerable sum of tobacco I give the said bond both principal and interest to my said son William Horner.
      To son John Horner, 50 pounds Virginia currency
      Understanding that Susannah W. Harris {wife of John A. Harris} grand-daughter of my late husband Samuel Hanson is needy, I give her sole use, and not under the control of her husband, the sum of 50 pounds current money of Maryland. I do this as a return for any expense my late husband Samuel Hanson may have been at on account of my children.
      To son Gustavus Brown Horner, my universal bible, and a large gold ring with a stone under which same of my sister Threlkelds heirs is set.

      To granddaughters, Frances Horner, Elizabeth Horner and Catharine Horner a tambour muslin gown and all my remaining silk cloaths.
      To daughters of son Samuel Clagett, all my remaining cloaths.
      As I own no debts, I expect there will be money sufficient to pay off all the above mentioned legacies, but in case it should be found deficient, it is my will that such deficiency shall be made good out of the rents arising from the lands bequeathed by me to my son Samuel Clagett.
      To four sons, Samuel Clagett, Gustavus Brown Horner, John Horner, and William Horner, all the residue of my property.
