In the name of God, amen:
I, Caroline W. Drewry, do make this my last Will and testament in manner and form following:
Item 1 I give to my daughter, Bettie V. Mason, my piano and my tract of land known as Harris's containing three hundred seventy-five acres of land more or less and one sixth of my personal property to her during her natural life and then to her children, she can dispose of this property if she thinks proper.
Item 2 I give to my son John C. Drewry my tract of land known as the Blue Pond tract containing three hundred acres land and one sixth of my personal estate to him and his heirs, provided I do not have to pay any money for him having become his security on a bond to the Mutual Life Insurance Co. of Newark, New Jersey for five thousand dollars while I do not apprehend any damages, but in the event I have to pay it or any portion of it, then I wish the said amount or the amount I have to pay, to come out of his portion of the property given him before he inherits anything from my estate.
Item 3 I give to my son James L. Drewry, my tract of land known as the Creek tract with three hundred acres of land and one sixth of my personal property to him and his heirs forever. He having possession of the landed estate. I do not charge him any rent for the same provided he does not charge me or my husband any medical bills, but if he charges them my will is that he shall pay to my estate fifty dollars per annum rent from the year 1888.
Item 4 I give to my daughter M. Lula Drewry my tracts of land known as the Phipps and Willeford's tract with three hundred and twenty-five acres, more or less, and the furniture in my chamber viz: Bureau, washstand, bed stead, bed and pillows and one sixth of my personal property to her and her heirs forever.
Item 5 I give to my son William S. Drewry my tract of land known as the Oak Hill Farm containing three hundred acres land, my bay mare Vixon or one hundred-fifty dollars, as he prefers, my Secretary in the parlor, my silver tea and table spoons, and one sixth of my personal property and one bed stead, feather bed pillows and (c).
Item 6 I give to my son David B. Drewry my tract of land known as Magnolia, with three hundred acres land, my parlor furniture not given away. My sorrel horse Roderick, or one hundred fifty dollars, whichever he may prefer, one bed stead, feather bed, and (c) and one sixth of my personal property, to him and his heirs forever.
Item 7 It can be plainly seen that it is my will and desire to divide my property equally between my children, the farms given to my two daughters not being as valuable as the others is why I give them more land and having given some of my children other property is why I give the specific legacy in this will and wish those to be taken out before any division of the personal property be made.
Item 8 I nominate and appoint my son W. S. Drewry my Executor of this my last Will and Testament after my husband's death. I wish him to manage the property during his life and to make any provisions with the property during his life paying such profits to the children as he thinks proper. I desire the Court to whom this may be brought for probate, not to require any security from him.
Given under my hand and seal this 17th day of September 1891.
