      A-1-16 John Kinsey: The Last Will and Testament of John Kinsey of the Township of Waterloo…

      …I John Kinsey of the Township of Waterloo, being sound in mind though infirm in body, do make this my Last Will and Testament. Item, my body I consign to the dust, my spirit to god who gave it, trusting to the merits of Christ, my Redeemer and Saviour. My Worldly goods I dispose of in the following manner - My farm in Waterloo to be apprizes and sold as soon as my youngest child is 21 years of age; the children to have the first chance of buying it if they think proper to do so. The whole of the stock, crops and movables to be sold, except such furniture and stock as my dear wife Elizabeth Kinsey may require for her own use in furnishing her dwelling place. My farm, located in Wilmot, which I valued at two thousand dollars: I desire may be purchased by my dear son Samuel, and that from the amount of the purchase money ($2,000) may be deducted the sum of $140 which he has already paid, and also all other lawful demands which he can make appear against me. Providing that any dispute may arise respecting the value of the Wilmot Lot, my desire is that my Executors hereinafter named my appoint (two) disinterested persons to assign the value of the payments to be made up by the time my youngst child is of in such a way and such a time as may be agreed on by my dear son Samuel and my Executors. Then my will is that out of my estate shall be reserved two thousand dollars, the interest on which, my dear wife Elizabeth Kinsey shall receive every year for her support as long as she lives. In addition a convenient house with a cow stable and other conveniences for keeping 1 or 2 cows with 1/2 acre or an acre of land shall be bought out of the proceeds of my estate in any place that my dear wife may choose for her sole use…That each of my dear children shall receive an equal share, always with this reservation toward my dear daughter Freeny, the wife of Nelson Newcomb, that is to say that she shall not receive her portion while Nelson Newcombe is alive, and in case of her death her portion to be divided between her children, and in the case of their death, her portion shall be divided between my lawful heirs. The two thousand dollars and the house provided for my dear wife at her death shall also be equally divided between my children. "It is my desire that my dear wife Elizabeth Kinsey shall have the management of the farm in Waterloo, and I trust she will seek the advice and council of my Executors whenever she shall deem necessary. Immediately after my death, whatever stock or movables on my estate that are not wanting may be sold, and also the crops on my farm at Wilmot as soon ass conveniently be harvested and converted in to money, the money arising from the crops at Wilmot and also of the stock and movables at Waterloo shall be applied to remove the encumbrance off the farm at Wilmot and that every effort be made to pay off the debts on that farm. I appoint my Executors, namely William Benton of the Township of Waterloo and my dear son John Kinsey.
