In case of my death I wish my daughter May to have every thing that I own.

In case she is not living, I wish my Uncle J. H. Robb to have $4,000.00 in Government Bonds during his lifetime and at his death to be equally divided between my three brothers.

All the remainder of my property I wish to go to my father, C. B. Robertson during his lifetime and to be divided equally between my three brothers at his death.
