      I, Stephen Compton of CC, am sick and weak of body, but of sound, disposing mind, memory and understanding.
      To my son -in-law John Maddox for the use and benefit I have had of my son-in-law's estate, I give John all that tract of land called Hansons Discovery and also all that part of a tract of land called Bargain I bought that part of John Brown Wilder, Carpenter James, Charity & her four children with their future increase from the date of this, my Will. But if he does not choose to take the above legacy in lieu of any claim he may have against me, then the whole to be sold by my executors, or such part thereof as my be sufficient to satisfy such calim.
      To my brother William Compton 10 sheep and no more.

      Immediately after my death, Negro fellow James and my Negro fellow Sam, formerly the property of John Maddox, Senr are to be free. The right of these two Negroes to be in my friends Jonathan Yates and Thomas Harris who no doubt
      will take proper steps to set them free immediately after my death.
      To my mother Rachel Compton one Negro man named Pompey and the use of one Negro girl named Lurana, during her life. And after my and my mother's death, Luraner is to be equally divided amongst the children of my sister, Susana Turner, with her future increase.
