Counts and his heirs my house and louts around the house including the corn crib stables and orchard and ten acres extra for taking care of me and his mother. I also give him a certain boundary of my land lying in the south west corner of it ... beginning at a poplar near the spring next widow Dickenson's corner of my land thence running north with the mill road to the foot of Cedar Hill.. And the balance of my land I give to my beloved sons John, David and Noah, to be equally divided... the balance of my loose property I give to my beloved daughters Catherine, Margaret, Susannah and Elizabeth... James and 'Evey' are buried on their homeplace."
