I William Lumsdale being feeble in body but sound in mind and possessing the right use of my senses, wish to make this a disposition of my affects at my decease. I do therefore constitute the following my last Will and Testament. I will first that all my just debts be paid. I will my wife Elizabeth Ann to have the use and disposition of all I may die possessed of, or may hereafter inherit, for the purposes of raising and educating my children so long as she may remain my widow. At her death or marriage I will it to be equally divided between all the heirs of her body. I will the bodily heirs of my son John H. Lumsdale, deceased, at the death or marriage of my wife to receive an equal interest of my estate with the balance of my children. Subscribed to August 17th, 1850. William Lumsdale (Seal)
