WILL OF JOHN LANDRUM499

I, John Landrum, Sr., of Edgefield, S. C., being in good health and sound disposing mind, knowing the uncertainty of life, feel desirous of disposing of the property which the Lord has helped me with, to give and bequeath it in the manner following, towit:

First: It is my will and desire that such property as I have already given off to my children, remain theirs, to them and their children, forever, it being as just a division as I can make, with the exception of the part given to my daughter -- Rebecca S. Mims, whom I intended to give on[e] hundred dollars more, and should I not be able to give her the one hundred dollars during my life, it is my will that my executors pay to her trustee the said amount before my estate is divided between my heirs.

Secondly: It is my will that each of my lawful heirs, at my death, shall share my property that then shall remain, equally between them, with this special condition -- That my sons have their property in fee simple, and that my son J. Landrum receive such property as may fall to the share of my daughter -- Elizabeth C. Swearingen and my daughter -- Harriet B. Miles children, in trust for them. It is expressively my desire that such property as they receive from my estate be not subject to their husband's debts, but the support of the whole family.

Thirdly: It is my will that the portion of my estate that is to be for the support of my daughter -- Rebecca S. Mims, be given in trust to Mr. John Swearingen, and not subject to her husband's debts, but for the support of the whole family.

Fourthly: It is my will and desire that such property as falls to the share of my daughter -- Lucinda W. Lawton, be given in trust to my friend Alex J. Lawton, for the support of herself and family, and not subject to her husband's debts.

Fifthly: It is my will and desire that such property as falls to the share of my daughter -- Mary S. Miles, be given to my son -- B. Franklin Landrum, in trust, for the support of herself and family, and not subject to her husband's debts.

Sixth: It is my will that if my son B. Franklin Landrum shall pay into the hands of my executors, in cash, one dollar per acre for a tract of land between Wolf Branch of Bear Creek, the creek and the original line as surveyed by Buchhalter, containing about three hundred acres, they make him a lawful title to the same.

Seventh: I hereby nominate and appoint my son John J. Landrum and John Swearingen, my executors to this my last Will and Testament, revoking all others; as witness my hand and seal this January, hirteenth eighteen hundred and forty three, in the sixty seventh year of American Independence.

Signed, sealed and delivered in the presence of Lewis Clark, Thomas Morris, and Benjamin P. Lockwood.

Sig -- John X (his mark) Landrum.
