County, 1837 states:
"Item 4th: And it is my wish and desire that my negro woman, Clarisa, now in the possession of my brother, Simon Whitaker, be equally divided between his firs wife's children, whenever the youngest comes of age, and for my brother to keep the negro woman to aid him in raising the children until the time specified above."
"Item 6th: and in case of the death or removal to a distance, of my son, James C. Whitaker, my son, Samuel E. Whitaker, shall then be legally authorized as one of my Executors when he comes of age, and noththing herein contained to prevent James C. Whitaker from having his lot of property, a certain negro by the name of Aaron only having regard to equality, and also I wish my mother to be supported out of my estate, with everything necessary for her comfort, and such things as may be necssary for her declining age."
