I Charles Irby of the State of Tennessee and County of Sumner having duly considered the shortness and uncertainty of this mortal life, I have thought proper to ordain and establish this instrument of writing to be my last Will and Testament.
In the first place I order as much property to be disposed of as will pay all my just debts. I do bequeath to my beloved wife Jemima the full possession of my house and the land on which I now live during her widowhood. If Jemima my wife should marry or decease, I order my plantation to be sold and the price of it to be equally divided among my children.
I bequeath my gray mare to my son William W. Irby and my wife each to have an equal part in said mare. I will my mare named Lilly to Mary Irby and Eastin Irby each to have an equal part in the worth of said mare. I bequeath my (black mark on microfilm) named Blage to Rebecca and Charles L. Irby my rone mare, I bequeath to Susanna and John R. Irby. My stock of cattle, hogs and sheep I leave for the use of my family who are now living at home with me. If my wife should marry or decease then I order the stock and it's increase to be sold and the money equally divided as follows among my three sons and daughters viz: Easten Irby, Charles Irby, John Irby, Mary Irby, Rebecca Irby, Susanna Irby. I appoint my two daughters to administer on my estate in a joint capacity viz: Mary Irby and Rebecca Irby, each will be as my lawful Administratrix. And I witness that this instrument of writing is my last Will and Testament. I have set my hand and seal, this 26th day of December 1832. Charles Irby (Seal)
