I Andrew King of Sumner County Tennessee hereby revoking all other Wills heretofore made by me do make publish and declare this as my last Will and Testament.

I give devise and bequeath my estate, real and personal as follows,

I wish everything to remain as it is.  If found necessary, I want any part or parcel of my land made sale of and the proceeds invested in other real estate.

I also want all the stock and perishable property to remain for the use and support of my family.  I further want my Executrix and Executors to have the power and privilege of making sale of stock or whatever surplus they may have to spare on the farm and to give to any of my children, that may marry or otherwise kneed; keeping a strict account of the same so that there may be made a equal division of any Estate after the death of my wife Amanda K. King.

I appoint my wife Amanda K. King and my too sons D. T. King and T. D. King my Executors and Executrix, in witness whereof I have hereto set my hand and seal this March 30, 1886.
