This is my will Amen! I being sick and weak in body but in my right mind and being aware of the shortness of life and the many diseases mortal man is incident to: first of all I commend myself to Almighty God and I will my body to be buried in Christian manner at the discretion of my dearly beloved wife Polly Prescott who I ordain and authorize and make my lawful Executrix to my Will and Testament. I being a citizen of the County of Sumner and State of Tennessee this the twelfth day of October in the year of our Lord One Thousand Eight Hundred and Thirty Three. And it is my will that my dear beloved wife Polly Prescot shall have all my real and personal estate to have and dispose of at her discretion during her natural life time and at her death, if there remains any part of my property, it is my will that it should or shall be equally divided between my two little children (viz) Allvin Prescot and Tabitha Prescott. In consideration or here of I set my hand and seal the day and date above written. Simon Prescott (Seal)

And in the presence of us three:

Samuel Hendricks
