Transcribed by Janie Dillon
In the name of God, Amen. I, JOHN LINDAMOOD, SEN, of the County of Wythe and State of Virginia, being weak in body, but of sound and disposing mind and memory, and remembering it is appointed for all men to die, think proper to make my last will.
First: I direct that all my just debts and funeral expenses be paid by my executor herein after named, as soon as he conveniently can, after the appraisement and sale of my personal property not otherwise disposed of.
Second: I give and bequeath to my son JOHN LINDAMOOD the lower part of my old plantation being the same which I let him have by an agreement entered into with him some time since upon his paying the notes and bonds yet due given me as purchase money of the same. And that it may not be said that I give him nothing, it is proper to remark that the price actually paid was much below the real value of the land.
Third: I give and bequeath to my son ANDREW LINDAMOOD the upper part of my old plantation and a new survey adjoining the said upper part of my old plantation (by upper part of my old plantation I mean all the balance of the tract not sold by agreement to my son John Lindamood) he complying with and performing certain stipulations herein after mentioned.
Fourth: I give and bequeath to my son GEORGE LINDAMOOD the money and debts I loaned him for the purpose of enabling him to purchase Phillip Knipp's lands, his paying to my daughter ELIZABETH MOYERS ten dollars twelve months
after my decease.
Fifth: I give and bequeath to my daughter ELIZABETH MOYERS the use and occupancy of the house and enclosed land being three or four acres where she now lives with liberty to get fire wood, for the full term of three years after my decease; also forty dollars in money to be paid her by my son Andrew Lindamood, the half in twelve months, and the other half in two years after
my decease. Also ten dollars in money to be paid her by my son George Lindamood in twelve months after my decease, also a small iron pot.
Sixth: I give and bequeath to my daughter MARY LINDAMOOD my bed and the furniture for the same.
Seventh: I give and bequeath to my wife ELIZABETH her bed and furniture, one oven, one cow, one sheep, one hog, one chest, and one coffee mill, one saddle and bridle, and what money she has that came by her to be hers absolutely; also the use of my Bon mare whilst she chooses to remain on the place and she is to have the house and garden to her own use so long as she remains on the place, and my son Andrew Lindamood is to furnish her with pasture for the cow, and grain, and meat for her support, and fire wood cut and at the door so long as she remains on the place. If my wife leaves the place, my Bon mare is to be the property of my son Andrew Lindamood.
Eighth: I give and bequeath two hundred dollars to be equally divided between my grandchildren now living to wit: the children of my daughter CATY KNIPP, my daughter ELIZABETH MOYERS, my daughter CHRISTINA ROBINETT, and my daughter MARY LINDAMOOD, to be paid to them by my son Andrew Lindamood, to wit: the first payment to be made four years after my decease, and to be made to those then of age, and then to the others as they severally attain the age of twenty one years; and if any of the said children should die before they attain the age of twenty one, their share of said two hundred dollars shall be the property of my son Andrew Lindamood. I also give and bequeath unto my said grandchildren above alluded to, all the proceeds of my personal estate not otherwise disposed of that may be remaining after the payment of my just debts and funeral charges.
Ninthly: And as I particularly desire my will shall stand and not be misinterpreted, and as I have not mentioned some of my children in my will or given them anything by it; it is not to be understood that I forgot them-but I consider the advances I have heretofore made them as sufficient.
Lastly: I constitute and appoint John Umbarger junior, executor of this my last will and testament, hereby revoking and making void all former wills. Witness my hand and seal, the 9th day of June 1829.
Signed, sealed, and acknowledged by John Lindamood Sen as & for his last will
in presence of us who subscribe the same as witnesses thereto in his presence
& in presence of each other.
