      To wife, my dwelling plantation during her natural life in full of her thirds of real property. After her death, te lands to my grandson Ignatius Simms. Should he sell or exchange the lands it is my most earnest wish that the graveyard shall be retained and that the most effective steps be taken to prevent it from being cultivated or trespassed upon.
