On March 8, 1733, Jacob Sautter in his illness and with good mental faculties dictated his will and testament.

Thus he decided and states here:

Firstly, the two children Mary Sauder and Susanna Sauder shall have the money, the household furnishings and the chests from their mother's inheritance.

Further this farm and three hundred aces of land are to be shall be added for 2 (?) hundred 80 Pounds Of this the above mentioned children Mary Sauder and Susanna Sauder are each to have one hundred Pounds as their inheritance from their father, the wife is to have 80 Pounds and shall have the use of the farm for three years as she wants to use it. However, so far as the movable goods and the debts shall belong to the wife.

But the land along the Pequea and 33 acres of land is to go to Hans Sauder and he is to pay out to his sisters and allow his mother to live on it for as long as she lives.
