In the name of God, Amen;
I, E. L. H. Reddick of the County of Sumner and State of Tennessee, being of sound mind, memory and considering the uncertainty of this frail and transitory life, do therefore make ordain and publish and declare this to be my last Will and Testament, that is to say,
First, after all my lawful debts are paid and discharged the balance real and personal of my estate I give bequeath and dispose of as follows: to my beloved wife Susan Reddick to have and to hold during her natural life, at her death what is left to be divided between my daughter Mary L. Durham and my daughter Billie Browns children. I will that my grand son E. R. Brown have my watch.
N. B. Make Billie Brown's children, my grandchildren equal with my daughter Mary L. Durham.
I want this all done if it can be without any lawyer for likewise I make constitute and appoint my son in law S. L. Durham my Executor of this my last will and Testament. This 28th day of Nov. 1898.
E. L. H. Reddick
