Ledbetter, Elizabeth C. Ledbetter, Polly B. Ledbetter deceased, children there mothers share, only one hundred dollars of their part to be given to my Daughter Nancy C. Glover, for taking care of them while small. Logan R. Glover and Nancy C. Glover are all the heirs: And lastly I do hereby appoint my son Logan R. Glover my executor of this my last will and testament. I witness where of I have hereunto set my hand and affixed my seal this 26th day of May in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and fifty six.
