      IN THE NAME OF GOD AMEN: I, John Witt of Amherst County, being weak in body but in perfect memory, thanks be to God, but cauling to mind that it is appointed to all men to die, I do hereby constitute and ordain this my last will and testament, that is to say: I give my soul to God that gave it to me, and my body I desire may be buried in a decent manner within the earth at the discretion of my executors, nothing doubting but at the General Resurrection I shall receive the same by the mighty power of God again, and as touching my worldly estate I give and bequeath in the following manner:
      Item. I give to my seven first sons, born of my wife, Lucy, ten shillings to be equally divided amongst them by my executors, being all the estate left to them by me.
      Item. I lend to my well beloved wife, Lucy, and my daughter, Lucy, a reasonable maintenance out of my estate to be given and provided by my son, William Witt; and if in case he deceases before them the estate is to be taken into the hands of my executors to maintain them with during their lives; and my son, William Witt, if alive, to be possessed with all the lands and personal estate goods and chattels I dye possessed with, and if in case my son, William Witt, deceases without heir his estate to be sold and equally divided between Littlebury and George and Elisha Witt my three sons, and all other wills heretofore made I do hereby revoke, and do constitute this my last will and testament. In witness whereof I have set my hand and seal the 4th day of December, 1781. I do hereby appoint John Witt, George and Littlebury Witt executors of this my last will and testament, and desire the same may be recorded.
