My will and desire is that as soon after my death as practicable my executor hereinafter mentioned sell at public auction all my personal estate together with the three tracts or parcels of land that I own, the ones known as the Skinner Bower, the second tract known as the Buck Hollow and the place I live upon. Said sale to constitute a fund subject to debts and distribution.

      Thirdly. I give to my beloved wife Rachel Jenkins one full third part of all my estate and that she have her choice either to take the one third in land or money during her natural life, and at her death to be equally divided among my eight children to wit Roland Jenkins, Julia Clark, Gracey Hill, Charlofle Pullam, Nuraway Jenkins, Juretta Woodward, Garland Jenkins, and Albert Jenkins.

      Fourthly. My will and desire is that all the money arising from the above sale after defraying all debts and expenses as well as the legacy left to my wife be equally divided among my eight children as above named.

      Fifthly. My will and desire is that whatever may be the portion of my estate coining to my daughter Charlotte Pullam be laid out in land and that she make the choice of some friend to select a place to suit her, and that said land be conveyed to her for her exclusive benefit and in no way to be liable for any debts or claims that may come against her husband James Pullam and at her death to be equally divided among her children.

      Sixthly. My will and desire is that the portions of my estate that may be coming to my son Nuraway Jenkins be equally divided among his seven children to wit Russel Jenkins, Mary Fry, Jane Atkins, Thomas Jenkins, Rebecca Jenkins, Rachael Jenkins, and Elliott Jenkins.

      Eighthly.

It is also necessary to say that I have paid for my son Garland Jenkins One Hundred and Fifty Dollars which sum I wish him to account to my estate for.
