Feeling the uncertainty of life and being of sound mind and wishing for harmony among my dear dear children after my death, I make a written statement in regard to disposition of whatever property I die possessed of … appoint my dear brothers, James and John Murdock … except the house where Willie lives … land which I bought from William Wilson … this I gave to my sons, George and William … to my husband, Malcum Slagle, knowing his weakness for all intoxicants there is this restriction for his share must be put into a safe investment so that at his death it may revert to his three boys, Hamilton, James and Harry Slagle … my dear George and Willie and my baby, Harry … let Kate have it … hoping that this disposition of my property may be lovingly carried out is the wish of a loving mother.
