Adam Jones Will, 1845, Georgia

In the name of God, amen.  I, Adam Jones, being weak
in body and blessed be the Lord, sound in mind and 
memory, do make and ordain this my last will and testament, 
in the manner and form following:  That is to say, in 
the first place I resign my body to the earth from which 
it came and distribute my estate among my five children as 
follows:  Sallie, Frances, Patsy, Patience and son Daniel.

Amongst them is my will and desire to divide into different 
shares and parts, which is all to be equal, share and share 
alike, in all cases; in which my whole estate and effects 
will have to be sold, and I therefore make and appoint and 
ordain my worthy friend and son-in-laws, James Gibson and 
James Ware, my lawful Executors, to transact the whole business 
of my estate after my decease and decent burial, expenses
paid therefrom.  In witness whereof, I have set my hand and 
seal this 12th of August 1845.

						Signed Adam Jones
