      September 15, 1841, reads as follows:
      "In the name of God-Amen. I Richard Coe of Prince George's County, Maryland, being old and infirm, but of sound mind, memory and understanding, do make, ordain and publish and declare this my last Will and Testament in manner and form following . . . First and principally I commit my soul into the hands of Almighty God and my body to the earth to be decently interred at the discretion of my Executor hereinafter named and after my just debts and funeral expenses are paid, I give, bequeath and devise all my real estate, which is small and not suited to division to my three single daughters and to niy son George G. Coe during their single life, as joint tenants; in as much as it will be necessary for my daughters to have some person to aid and assist and manage for them, and as no person can be so well suited for that purpose as a brother, I also give, bequeath and devise all my personal property to my son George G. Coe and my three single daughters, share and share alike. As regards my daughter Elizabeth Beall, I gave her at the time of her marriage as much as I was able to give her . , but in as much as my Son and daughters above named, will have all my property - I have no objection to their giving her anything they can spare - It is my will and desire that my real property shall not be sold, but kept for the joint use of my son and three single daughters . . . Lastly I constitute and appoint my son George G. Coe sole executor of this my last Will and Testament, revoking and annulling all former wills by me heretofore made, ratifying and confirming this as my last Will and Testament, to which I hereby sign my name and affix my seal this fifteenth day of September one thousand eight hundred and forty one.
      Richard Coe."

      Witnesses to the will were B.I. Semmes, P.W. Ogden and Randolph Marbury. On July 20, 1843, Marbury appeared before Phil Chew, Registrar of Wills for Prince George's County, and swore that he saw Richard Coe sign and seal the above will.
