Transcribed by Janie Dillon
I JOHN LINDAMOOD being weak of body but of sound and disposing memory do make this my last will and testament, revoking all others. In the following manner, that is to say:
I give and bequeath to my dear wife BARBARA all and everything of my real and personal estate-to have in entire management during her natural life, or as long as she shall remain my widow.
And it is also my will that if my son DAVID shall stay and help toconduct the business of the farm in a good/industrious manner until he shall arrive at the years of twenty one, he shall receive one hundred dollars out of the personal property. But if before that time my widow BARBARA should be deceased or shall cease to be my widow, then it is my will that all the estate both real and personal shall be sold to the best possible advantage and the money equally divided among all the children except as said above David is to have one hundred dollars more than the others.
And it is my will and request that all my just debts shall be paid as soon as possible-without the sale of the personal estate if it can be accomplished; if not, then to sell as much and no more than will pay the debts.
And it is my request that Pearson Ousley and Christopher Brown will be executors to this my last will and testament. On witness whereof I hereunto set my hand/seal this second day of November in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and thirty one.
