I, Jonathan Latimer, Senior, of the county of Sumner and State of Tennessee, do make and ordain this, my last will and testament, hereby revoking all former wills hertofore at any time by me made.
First, my will and desire is that all my just debts should be paid by my executors.
Second, I will and bequeath to my beloved wife, BETSEY LATIMER, all the tract of land I now live on, together with all the property of every description of which I may possess at my death, to have and enjoy during her life. At my wife's death I will and bequeath the tract of land to my son JACOB LATIMER, I also give and bequeath to my son, JACOB LATIMER, my big kettles.
Thirdly, I will and bequeath to my daughter, BETSEY NYE, after my wife's death, all my household and kitchen furniture, except one bed and furniture and one chest, which I give to my beloved wife to dispose of as she may think proper.
My will and desire is that my son, LYNDE LATIMER, should receive thirty dollars in property or money at my wife's death, provided there should be enough left not otherwise disposed of in this will.
Believing as I do that I have given to my son, JONATHAN, more than the rest, I have not willed to him anything.
I do hereby nominate and appoint my son, JACOB LATIMER, and my friend, Charles Watkins, executors to this, my last will and testament.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand and affixed by seal this fourteenth day of April in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and forty-one.
