I will that my Executors shall as soon as conveniently may be after my decease sell by public or private sale all my real and personal property (excepting the bequests to my wife) and deed or deeds to the purchasers as the case may legally require, and I do hereby satisfy and confirm all such deeds as if assigned, sealed and delivered the same myself personally. I will that all my children shall have a good common schooling and be brought up in a decent manner, corresponding to my means. I will that my several children shall finally have, share and share with each other of my whole estate, excepting my son shall have fifty pounds more than my two daughters each. And lastly, I do nominate, constitute and appoint Amos Clemens and Henry Bechtel Junr, both of the Township of Waterloo, to be the lawful Executors of this my Last Will and Testament…
