WILL OF ISAAC HALL (1788-1869) Son of Isaac and Polly Melson Hall. First wife was Susannah Ross (1788-1860).

GEORGIA, WILKINSON COUNTY

I, Isaac Hall, of the County and State aforesaid, being of sound mind and memory, and being desirious to settle my worldly affairs while I have the strength to do so, do make this my last will and testament, hereby revoking all other wills by me at any time heretofore made: My land consists of three places: First, the Maiden Creek place, containing 670 ½ acres of land, more or less. Secondly, my Lavender place, containing 308 acres of land, lying in the Third District, rented to the widow Helton for the year 1868. Thirdly, my Irwinton place containing 202 ½ acres of land, more or less, which is leased to James Bush until the first of June 1868. I desire that my estate be disposed of as follows:

FIRST. That my wife continue to live in the house upon the Maiden Creek place during her natural life and supported from the proceeds of the aforesaid land. My wife shall have all of my household and kitchen furniture and shall be furnished with a gentle horse and buggy. Should she desire to cultivate any land upon the Maiden Creek place, she shall be allowed the privilege.

ITEM SECOND. None of the aforesaid lands shall be sold at my death, but when the present term of rent and leases are out, said lands shall be rented or leased continually during the natural existence of my wife.

ITEM THIRD. Should there be more stock upon my land than is essential, my Executors shall sell the same and apply the proceeds to their own uses, or should there be an insufficiency of stock, my Executors shall supply the deficiency from the proceeds of the farm.

ITEM FOURTH. At the death of my dear wife, all my estate, both real and personal, shall be sold and equally divided among the heirs of my body.

ITEM FIFTH. My Executors shall perform all business pertaining to my estate that I would perform the same if I were present. I moreover require that they perform their duties as Executors fully and faithfully most especially towards their step-mother who I commit to their care and protection and that they see that she does not suffer for anything with which my estate is able to supply her.

ITEM SIXTH. I herby appoint my sons and son-in-law, my Executors, to carry into effect this my last will and testament. In witness whereof I, the said Isaac Hall, to this my last will have set my hand and seal, this 16th, day of December 1868.

Isaac Hall (This will was never recorded)

Mr. Hall was past 70 when he married the second time
