State of Tennessee, Lincoln Co., Oct.30,1841.
I Mark Whitaker, Senior, calling to mind that all men have once to die and feeling the infirmity of old age, but feel thankful to God for that strength of mind, which enables me to make this my last will and testament as follows:
1st: I will my soul to God who gave it and that my body be decently buried.

2nd: I will that all my estate both real and personal be equally divided among all my children as the law directs, namely:, Rebecca Izard, Nancy Hammond, John Whitaker, Mary Lucas, Sarah Bazinger, Martha Pegram, Benjamin I. Whitaker, Judah Prewit, Mark Whitaker, Jr. and Perlina Purtem and their heirs-except the following special provisions which circumstances seem to require to be made, as my beloved wife, Catherine, is far advanced in years and feeble-I will that she have the use of one negro woman of her own choosing and as much household furniture as she may need, also the use of five hundred dollars, all to be managed for her comfort by the assistance of my executers.

3rd: I will and appoint and do ordain Benjamin I. Whitaker special agent and attorney in fact for Martha Pegram and her heirs to receive and hold for their special benefit all of my estate ageeeable to this will, to which she may be entitled to deal out as in his judgment her necessities mary require.

4th: I furthermore will, ordain and appoint Mark Whitaker the special agent and attorney in facto for Judah Preuitt (as above) to receive, hold and deal out that part of my estate which may fall to Judah Pruitt and her heirs.

5th: I consider my children near equal in my former gifts to them except sarah Basinger who has recieved one hundred and fifty six dollars, which is to be accounted for with the other heirs, bearing interest from the time received.

My son, Mark will also account for two hundred dollars which is due for my land. In order to carry the above into effect, I hereby ordain and appoint my two sons, Benjamin I. Whitaker and Mark Whitaker my executors.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal in presence of John J. Whitaker, William Moore, Joseph Whitaker.
Mark Whitaker, (Seal)
