In the name of God Amen, I Charles Powel of Mercer County and state of Kentucky, being in a perfect state of mind and memory but feeling the dissolution of my mortal body approaching, do make constitute and ordain this as my last will and testament. First. I recommend my soul to God who gave it and my body to the earth to be buried at the discretion of my friends in a decent manner and as to my worldly possessions I give and dispose of them in the following manner (to wit) I will that all my just debts be paid and that my Negro man Tom and my Negro woman Doriah be emancipated and enjoy their freedom from and after my death, and that the balance of my property, both real and personal be sold and the proceeds of the sales be equally divided amongst all my children having due regard to legacies they have already received which must be properly accounted for as part of their dividends. In testimony where of I have here unto set my hand and affixed my seal this 27th day of March 1810.
