If am I am not able to put up toom stones to my wifes grave then I want enough of my household or other goods sold to pay for a toom stone for my wife and one for me. I want them to be like Pink Gregorys & Sallie Gregorys. If the toom stones are paid for without selling any of the personal peoperty then all of my kitchen and household furniture are to go to my daughters Julia and Edna Moore if they are not paid for that way then they Julia & Edna Moore are to have what is left out of the kitchen & household goods.

After Juia & Edna's death and their just debts and funeral expenses are paid I want Pansy Moore to have one half of what is left of Julia & Edna Moores estate. The other half of Julia & Edna's estate to be divided equal between Wilson Moore's children.

Third, I give and bequeath to my son T R Moore a certain tract or parcel of land.

T R Moore is to get this 25 acres of land provided that Wilson Moore receives ($25.00) Twenty five dollars of this 25 acres of land.

Further that T R Moore is to do the milling and get the wood for his father during his life time. If these two last clauses is carried out then T R Moore is to receive the 25 acres of land and also the shop tools.

I nominate and appoint C G Glass to be the executor of this Will.
