Sons Adam and James to keep the increase of her stock till they are ready for sale, and she to have the money. Also, household furnishings and one-third of profit from sale of my land during her life. Son John Stephenson., dau Esther, son Adam, Jane, Margaret, James, Rebeckah, Cyntha: $40 each above their equal share, plus whatever is coming from estate of my brother John. Son John: $45 above the other, if he repays the borrowed money. Children at home to be made equal in property to those already married, and then share and share alike. Sons Adam and James: ₤200 each from the sale of my land. All living property to be appraised; Adam and James to have what they wish at the appraised value, the rest to be sold. Lands to be valued by Otho Wade, Stuart Slaven, and Valentine Bird. If Adam and James wish to buy it, at the appraised value, these men are to make the division. Adam and James may pay the other heirs the appraised value in 10 or 12 years (longer if necessary), paying first to those most in need. If the sons treat their mother and the children at home with duty and respect, Slaven and Bird may make the proper deduction accordingly from the price of the land. If the sons do not wish to take the land, it is to be sold on the best terms availble, but only after my wife’s death or with her consent. Executors: wife, sons John and Adam.
