    At my decease I give to my son, Abraham Snow, the sum of one hundred and fifty dollars, provided I do not use all my money or that it is not lost through failure of Bank; also my garden extending in a line from the front side of John Snow’s (of Charles) house to the Central Road, and the western half of my garden at Shearstown; provided, that Abraham shall not have the right to sell the above mentioned land to any person except my son, Edward, or my grandson, James Stewart Snow.

    I give Seventy dollars to my granddaughter, Caroline Snow;     Forty dollars to my grand-daughter, Lizzie Snow;     Thirty dollars to my grand-daughter, Marion Snow, and Thirty dollars to my grand-daughter, Pearl Snow.     In case there should not be a sufficient amount of money left to pay these amounts to my grand-children, then it shall be divided proportionately amongst them.     I give one hundred dollars to my son’s (Abraham) children, to be equally divided amongst them.     And should there be any money left after the above bequests are paid, I give it to my son, Edward Snow, and my grandson, James Stewart Snow, to be equally divided among them.
