Testament hereby revoking all former wills by me at any time heretofore made, to wit.
I hereby constitute and appoint my wife, Sarah Darter to be sole executrix of this my last will, directing my said executrix to pay all my just debts and funeral expenses and the legacies hereafter given out of my estate. 2nd. I give to my said executrix all of my personal and real estate as long as she remains unmarried and my widow, and to give to each of my children, as they come of age, at a fair valuation, such property and money as she can conveniently spare. And in the event she should marry or the estate be likely to waste or be destroyed, I wish the estate equally divided between my children and my wife to share equal with them, and in case of her death with the property remaining in her hands, I want the heirs made equal. And I further request that my executrix shall collect all notes and claims due me as guardian of Reuben darter and to pay to the person he may select as guardian as soon as it can conveniently be done. And in case one or any of the heirs should leave or want to leave before they become of age, it shall be lawful for her, my executrix, to pay and give them such property or money as she may think proper and keep a correct account or receipts of all money paid out to each or any of the heirs, and at the final distribution for all of the heirs to be made equal except a reasonable compensation for those that may remain with the widow and assist in accumulating property and supporting the family. In testimony whereof, I hereunto set my hand and seal and publish and declare this to be my last will and Testament in the presence of the witnesses named below this 27th day of Sept. in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and fifty three Wit: JA Lindsay, James Holland signed Andrew Darter
