Duncan, Mary S. Duncan and Henry Duncan and Coleman Duncan, children and heirs of the said Henry Duncan decd, and make a report to court, we Robert Breckenridge, Alexander Pope and Edward Tyler Jr., have discharged the duty in the following manner: In the first place we allotted to Nancy O'Beirne as her third part of the real estate of the said Henry Duncan decd, the following part of half-acre lot in Louisville known as #73, to wit, the whole front of said lot on Main Street and extending the same width 168 feet back with the improvements thereof.

To Coleman Duncan, the same quantity of said lot adj. the western line of said Garnett's part. To Ann E. Duncan the same quantity of said lot to adj. the western line of said Coleman. To Mary S. Duncan the same quantity to adj. the western line of said Ann E. Duncan. And to Henry Duncan the balance of said lot. And that they receive the rents and profits of the improvements now erected in said lot jointly as long as they shall remain thereon.
