To my stepdaughter, Mrs. A. R. Hill I give the lounge, a feather bed for same, a small pair of pillows & cases, two sheets & the clock.

I have in my possession two shawls and one breast pin, two silver thimbles which belong to my nephews Luther & Elemore Marshall. I request that these articles be turned over to them.

I give to Mrs. W. S. Grimm one dresser, two tables, one bedstead, one set teaspoons and all other little articles of which I may be possessed.

Out of my moneys, or notes & proceeds thereof of which I may be possessed at death, I direct that all doctor's bills, burial expenses & any other personal debts be paid, also enough money be set apart to place a stone at the head of mine & my husband's graves and place a substantial fence around same.

One half of remainder if any, to be given to Mrs. A. R. Hill, the other half to go to Mrs. W. S. Grimm who has so patiently and faithfully nursed me through a number of serious attacks of illness.
