make, declare & ordain this my last will and testament hereby

Secondly, to my dear beloved wife Francis I lend the following

one hundred acres on the south end including the spring which 
my son Ransom used, of which I will to my son John, five 
negroes, Demby? Jenny, Mebin, Chesley, and Mary. It's also my 
desire that my said wife shall have her choice of my horses, a 
saddle, riding chair, all my household and kitchen furniture 
and that she should have one years provisions of corn, pork and 
other articles for living on such as she has been generally 
used to. It is also my desire that she should have her choice 
of two cows & calves and one third part of my hogs and sheep.

named Isaac to him, his heirs and assigns forever.

property willed by me to her (if it should not have perished) 
be equally divided between her children, that is to say after 
her death.
Lastly I appoint and nominate my dear beloved wife my 
executrix and my son Hiram Ward my executor to this my last
