I George L. Jackson of Gallatin Sumner County Tennessee do hereby bequeath to my son Eugene C. Jackson a policy in the Continental Life Insurance Company of New York for two thousand dollars also all my personal property and my interest in the undivided portion of my Father's estate. Also the following real estate in Putman County Florida. The undivided half of the North half of the west half of the North-West quarter of section twelve (12) in township ten (10) South of Range twenty six (26) East. It is my will and request that my brother William R. Jackson act as executor of my will and Guardian for Eugene and it is my will that he act without giving the usual bond required in such cases and he is hereby authorized to dispose of the personal property as he may think best and to use as much of the estate as he may think necessary to improve the above described real estate. And it is hereby provided that should Eugene at the age of twenty one (21) years be dissipated from the use of intoxicating liquors or gambling or from any cause become of a worthless character so that he would squander the estate, then it is my will that the estate shall not be delivered to him until such causes shall have been removed and steady habits formed. And it is further provided that should Eugene die before he arrives at the age of twenty one (21) years or the delivery of the estate to him that the estate shall be equally divided between my brother and Sister or their heirs. And provided further should any of the said brothers be dis-
sapated from the use of intoxicating liquors then they shall not be entitled
to any share of the estate but it shall go to his children should he have
any if not then that portion shall be divided with the balance of the estate
among the other brothers and sisters.
Witness my hand and seal this second day of November Eighteen hundred and seventy five. Done at Gallatin Tennessee.
