      W. W. 3 June 1767---W. P. 13 July 1767
      Wife-to have my mulatto wench called Hannah, during her natural life.
      Son George-negro boy Billy, son of Hannah.
      Son Samuel Peachy-negro boy Plato, son of Norah.
      Wife-my land called Hobsons during her natural life, and at her death to be sold for the equal benefit of the children of hers and mine then surviving.
      Rest of my negroes to be equally divided among my wife, and my sons George, and Samuel, and the child my wife now goes with, and the part allotted to my wife, at her death be equally divided among my said children, and if either of the sid children should die before the age of twenty one, their part to be equally divided among the survivors.
      Part of my stock and furniture as may be deemed necessary, be kept together for use of wife and children, and the rest be sold and the money therefrom together with the crop and saltary on hand or due me, and the debts due me, be equally divided among my wife and children.
      As there is a marriage contract between my wife and me, and I am under some apprehension that my son George may take all the negroes mentioned. If son George insists on the benefit of the said contract, he is then to have no other part of my estate, but that it be divided between the other two children, having due regard to my wife as before directed.
      Friends William and Leroy Peachey, executors, and friends Col. Presly Thornton, Doctor Nicholas Flood, Mr. Thomas Jones, and Mr. Rodham Kenner, will join my executors in the guardianship or care of my children.
