In the name of God, amen. I, Elizabeth HUMBER, do make this my last will and testament.

I desire that my Executors hereafter named shall sell all my Estate real and personal and after first paying all that I owe to the Estate of my deceased husband for the property purchased at the same, so as completely to exonerate Josiah LEAKE my security as adm'r. of the said Estate, so that he shall not be injured by being security for me, and then all my other just debts which are but few, I desire that the balance of any, shall be divided among my children to wit: Christian JARRETT, Lucy PLEASANTS, Mary HUMBER, Robert HUMBER, John HUMBER, Charles HUMBER and Edward HUMBER, and the children of my son William HUMBER, and of my daughter Elizabeth MANGUM, and of my daughter Judith COX, that is, that my grandchildren above mentioned shall have their father's or mother's equal share of the same. In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and seal this 7th of September 1825 and appoint my son Edward HUMBER and my friend Josiah LEAKE, my Executors.
