      I, Stephen Hendren of the County of Wilkes and State of North Carolina, on this the first day of February A. D. 1876, being weak in body, but of sound and perfect mind, I do make this my last will and testament, revoking and making void all others previously made, in manner and form following, I resign my body to the earth, to be decently buried therein, and my soul to God who gave it, and for the settling of my temporal estate
      1st I order that all of my just and lawful debts be paid.
      2nd Then I will and bequeath unto my wife Mary all of my personal estate to leave and to reside during her life time or widowhood, and that she be decently buried at her death out of the estate.
      3d I will and bequeath unto my son W. O. Hendren Seventy five dollars worth of my land or that amount of money, if he prefers it, and [securities?] if he stays with and takes care of me and my wife until our death, I order and will that he shall leave such an amount of my estate as is just and proper for keeping us according to the expense and trouble we be to him, to be paid out of my personal estate.
      4th If my two daughters Pamelia and Ailcey never marry, and stay with their parents during their life time, I will unto them twenty five acres of land including the old homestead and improvements thereon. If either or both of them marry and leave I will that they leave the same amount of property that I have given those that have married and if they never marry after their death the land that I will to them to fall back to the rest of my heirs, and further if my son W. O. Hendren fails, or do not choose to stay with and take care of me and my wife, whichever of my children which do take care of us in our old age, to be paid out of my estate according to the expense and trouble that we be to them, then if there be any property left I will and bequeath it unto my heirs equally, and I hereby appoint my sons E. E. Hendren and W. O. Hendren Executors of this my last will and testament. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal the day and date above written. Sealed, Signed and acknowledged in
