|Vonnie Cantrell||Your family|
Thank you for "Friending" me on Find a Grave. I take that very seriously and hope you will consider me a friend. I feel so honored to tell you that your family does not end in 1875: indeed, your family is very well documented.
The Ross that you know is actually "Roswell" and the Worrie is actually "Warren".
This is not my line, so I have not researched it and I do not have a lot of information, but I think I can help you by pointing you in a direction to research. I am not saying that all my information is correct. In fact, as you find corrections to the info I have, I hope you will correct my tree.
Please contact me at my email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to continue our correspondence. I would like to send you an invitation to my Family Tree on ancestry.com, but will need your email address to do so and you may not want to put that in a public forum.
To begin your journey:
The State of South Carolina
To all whom it may concern that I NATHANIEL REID of land, state and county of Pickens, knowing that man must die and being of strong mind as is usual of men and desiring to distribute my worldly goods and effects or estate as it has pleased God to bestown upon me from time to time, do here by these presence, make the following my last will and testament, revoking all others and in the name of God Amen - To wit,.
Item - I desire to be buried in a decent manner by my heirs and executors..
Item - I desire that as soon after my death as will be convenient to my executor, that they (my executor, whom will be here after below appointed) that they sell to the highest bidder all my personal and real estate, consisting of all the property to which I am possessed at my death as also take charge of any and all money I may have on hand, and that they distribute the same to my heirs, as follows to wit after paying my funeral expenses and all my just debts..
Item - I give to my son Harrison C. Reid one sixth part, to my son William H. Reid one sixth part, to my daughter Elizabeth Williams one sixth part and to my son Roswell one sixth part and to my three grandchildren which is the heirs of my youngest son Warren D. Reid, to wit, his daughter, Nelley, Margaret and Warren D. Reid one sixth part, I desire equally divided between them each one to receive a third part..
Item - To my daughter Mary Hawkins, I give her nothing herself but desire and direct that the part she might have had to be given to her three children, Warren D. Keith, Allen Keith, and Rebecca Jones, and I therefore give to the said Rebecca Jones, one half of the sixth part of my estate and that the other half be equally divided between my other two grandchildren, Warren D. Keith and Allen Keith and so I direct my executors - it may be asked why I give my daughter Mary nothing my answer is she has not treated me as a father and just so is the reason why I give nothing to her daughter Margaret she doesn't treat me as I think she should and I have therefore given the part she would have been entitled to my three grandchildren as above..
Item - I hereby ordain and appoint my son William H. Reid and my friend William M. Jones, my lawful executors whom I wish to carry out and distribute this my will as is herein before set forth..
In witness where unto I here subscribe my name and affix my seal this 2nd day of Jany 1872.
