Knowing the uncertainty of Life and the certainty of death have thought proper to make this my last will revoking all others by me at any time heretofore made.

1st  I will my body to a decent burial and my soul to God who gave

2nd  I desire that all my property both real and personal to remain in the hands of my wife Elizabeth, with the exceptions of such loose property as she may not want to keep during her widowhood or until the youngest child becomes of age, at which time I desire it sold or divided between my wife and my two children, Sarah E. M. & V. M. E. Bradley Equally by them and their heirs.

3rd I appoint Redmond Falding my Executor to this my last will and testament given from under my hand and seal this 21st August 1861.
