I, Hiram Love do make and publish this as my last will and testament, hereby revoking and making void all other wills by me made at any other time.
First: I direct that my funeral expenses and all my debts be paid as soon after my death as possible by any claims that may be coming to me from the proceeds of sale of my property. After that is exhausted I direct that land on the West end of my tract be sold to pay the debts. I wish my wife to have any or all my household & kitchen furniture she may want with farming utensils and wagon. I give to my wife two mares (a bay and sorrel) cows and calves with a stock of hogs with a sufficiency of wheat, corn, oats, hay & fodder for one year's provision. I give to my son Berry a sorrel mare and sorrel filley. I give to my son Charles a bay colt, monterey. In case my wife marries, I wish an equal division between my wife and two sons, or when my youngest son becomes of age.
Lastly: I do appoint my wife and brother Solomon Love my Executors. In witness whereof I do, to this my last will, set my hand and seal. This 9th day of August, 1860. H. Love (Seal)
