Written 1813 Proved 1823

of township Lancaster county

wife Elizabeth

He leaves daughters Isabella , Mary & Rebecca 8 dollars & Elizabeth 20 dollars having given them before.

And gives to other daughters Ruth, Sarah and Margaret their living on the place with their mother as long as they remain single(plus beds and that type thing)

Also has sons John & James

He writes a 1822 codicil that says he is giving his daughter Elizabeth Black wife of Robert Black 1 acre of land that she is residing on

Note: He names his daughters but no married names are given if they are already married in 1813 when he wrote his will But I think the first named daughters are married prior to the writting of his will by the way it is worded...MM
