I, Thomas Wood, being weak in body but perfectly sound in mind to
declare this to be my last will and testament. In the first place, I
bequeath to my son, Hiram Wood, one half of my household furniture and
also all the property that he has claimed before this time consisting of
three horses, 4 head horned cattle, 3 sheep and 9 hogs. I also give to
my son Hiram, all the corn, hay and meat. I also give him as much of the
oats as he wants to sow and one half of what remains after sowing. I
wish my son Hiram to take whatever money I have on hand or what is due
to me and pay off all debts that I own. I give also to my son Hiram, one
half of the harness and two plows and side saddle, and one of the the
Jeans cloth and one bedstead and coverlid and all the tools and
singletree and the two old hives of bees. The remainder of my property I
wish divided equally amongst my four sons, Joseph, Nathan, William and
Abner, except the wagon which I wish my three sons, Hiram, William and
Abner to have between them. I also bequeath to my three grandchildren,
W. Jasper, Presley O. and George B. Green, one dollar and to my daughter
Nancy, I give two dollars. I wish James Wood and Miles Stubbs to be the
executors of this my last will.
