1847 Will, Page 24, Estate Book E Roane County, Tennessee John Lewis Suddath Senior

John Suddaths Will May Term 1847
slave should become his property that he then pay back
to the other children their equal share of the value of said
slave or may be deducted out of his portion of my land
so that all my children shall be made even in their
several devises
Item 8th In the division of my said estate I wish my prop-
erty and slaves to be valued and given up to the children
instead of being sold where the same may be practicable
but leaving that matter discretionary with my wife
and my executors. I also wish the sale of my personal property
to be entirely discretionary with my executors for the pur-
pose of paying debts etc.
Item 9th I also wish and devise that at the death of my belov-
ed wife that all my land shall be equally divided
amongst my several children and if they cannot
agree in the division they being of age then my executors
if they be alive (if not others may be appointed by the County
Court of Roane County) shall proceed to sell said land on
such credit as they shall think advisable making good
titles to said land so as to make an equal division amon-
gst the several children before named
Item 10th If any of my aforesaid children die without
issue or before they become of age than my estate to be equ-
ally divided amongst the surviving children
Lastly I constitute and appoint my friend Henry Liggett
& my beloved wife Eveline & executrix as my executors
to carry the foregoing into effect given under my hand
and seal this 5th day of April 1847
Signed and acknowledged John Suddath (Seal)
