of which I may be the owner at my death. 
And lastly, I do hereby constitute and appoint my trusty nephew William McDougald my lawful executor to all intents 
and purposes, to execute this my last will and testament according to the true intent and meaning of the same, and 
every part and clause thereby without any bond on his part.  I hereby revoke and declare utterly void all other wills
