Knowing the certainty of death and the uncertainty of life I am induced in the name of God to make a disposition of my property between my two sons Mathew J. Jones and Albert C. Franklin in the following manner viz: I doth give and bequeath to my eldest son Mathew J. Jones three hundred dollars in cash and one feather bed and furniture. To my youngest son Albert C. Franklin I doth give and bequeath the tract of land on which I reside containing by estimation eighty four acres adjoining the lands of Thomas Hudson, Henry Vinson, and others. I also give and bequeath to the said Albert C. Franklin five negroes (viz), Polly, Dicy, Anthony, Charles and Mariah. I also give and bequeath to the said Albert all my perishable property of every description consisting of horses, cattle, sheep, hogs, farming tools, house hold and kitchen furniture. I also give and bequeath to the said Albert all the moneys that may be left after paying the said Mathew the above specified sum of three hundred dollars.
