I further Will that when John Garver and William Stouder lease expire on my farm on Stone Lick then it be appraised by three good disinterested men, and if either of my children are able to keep it by paying the other children their equal share they are to have it taking choice according to their ages beginning with the eldest, but if none of them sees proper to take it then it is to be sold and the proceeds equally divided between them (viz:) William, elizabeth, Cathrairine, Susan, Mary, Anna, Jean, Lydia, Hetty and James.I further will that my son William and my son in law John Garver in right of his wife Catherine have the first refusal of the farm in Stone Lick agreeable to the terms above stated jointly and if either is unable then the other is to take it by paying the other heirs their respective shares.
