State of North Carolina
In the name of God, Amen: This third day of May in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixteen. I George HOWARD being weak in body, but of a sound memory, thanks be to God for it, I constitute and ordain this to be my Last Will and Testament, revoking and disannulling all others that has been made by me, either by word or writing, so that this shall be taken for my Last Will and Testament in manner and form as follows.
First: I will that all my just dues and demands may be paid or made convenient to be paid. It is my will and desire that all my property within doors and without doors should be sold by my executor for six months credit, and the money arising from the sale, for my Wife to have one third which part the law allows her, and the other two thirds of the money to Helen SIMMONS to she and her heirs forever; but if the said Helen SIMMONS should die of a nonage for the property to go to Charlotte SIMMONS and if the said Charlotte SIMMONS should die before she inherits it for the property to return back to the giver. I also constitute and ordain my friend Hosea BALL to be my whole sole Executor, and it is my desire that he will not show no favours further than the law.
