Will: In the name of God, Amen.
I, William Brumfield, being a citizen of Hardin County and state of Kentucky and knowing the uncertainty of life and the certainty of death and being somewhat feeble of body, but of sound mind and judgement, do make this my last will and testament. 1st - I do declare a former will made by me in 1854 to be null and void for the following reason: because the former will conveyed all my estate to John Allstun & his wife upon the condition that the said John Allstun should take care of and support me in a comfortable, but the said John Allstun has departed from this state and has utterly failed to comply with the above requisitions. 2nd - I desire and give and bequeath my farm which lies in Hardin County, and sixty acres to my daughter, Lucretia Allstun, to her benefit and disposal whether to keep or sell at her own request provided the said Lucretia Allstun takes care of me and supports me in a decent and respectable manner. 3rd - I desire, also, that my daughter, Lucretia, have the growing crops of wheat and corn from the above premises for her benefit. In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand this 18th day of July, 1857.
