I, J. D. Crenshaw, being of sound mind and disposing memory, do hereby make and publish this my last will and testament, hereby revoking any and all wills heretofore made by me at anytime.
Item I. After my death it is my will that all my just debts be paid.
Item II. After the payment of my said debts, if any, I give devise and bequeath all of my property both personal and real, including the tract of land on which I now reside on Wolf Hill in the 11th Civil District of Sumner County, Tennessee, to J. W. Crews. Said land being devised to said J. W. Crews, subject to the life estate of my wife Nancy Ann Crenshaw, should she survive me. I have tho given my property to said Crews, for the reason that I am old and unable to work and he has cared for and supported my said wife and myself and provided us with the necessaries of life, and is to continue to care for and support my said wife during her natural life, in the event she survives me. Said tract of land is bounded on the North by Soss Read, East by Nat Thompson, South by Wm. Harper, and West by Shelby Thurman, and contains about Forty nine acres.
Witness my hand this 28th day of August 1911. J. D. Crenshaw
Signed by the testator as his last will and testament and witnessed by us at his request, and in his presence and in the presence of each other.
