      Book A, 1828-1856 - no Duncan
      A-143/8 (pg.142 missing): Item 4, I do hereby appoint David J. Bailey my son trustee for my daughter Mary Ann Duncan who is to receive her proportionate part of my estate and use it for her benefit during her natural life and at her death to the heirs of her body if she has any if not it is to revert to the heirs of my estate and if she should have heirs who are in minority, the property which they draw from their mother by the provision of this will is to return to my heirs. All my estate to be equally divided amongst my heirs David J. Bailey, trustee for my daughter Mary Ann Duncan, Mariah Frances Darden, Henry J. Bailey, Charles Bailey, Thomas Bailey, Richard Bailey, Steven Bailey, David J. Bailey, William Bailey, & David J. Bailey & Robert H. Dixon Trustees for my son Robert Bailey, provided each one of the legatees to my estate, my son Robert Bailey excepted also Thomas Bailey & William Bailey, so far as relates to any money which they may have received from me previous to 19 April 1839 shall come forward and report the amount in money and quantity of negroes they have received from me, and valued at their worth on 19 April 1839. If my heirs fail to comply with this provision, they are to be deprived of any interest in my estate, $5 excepted, the amount they having heretofore received being apportioned to them as their entire legacy of my Estate. I have some notes against my son Henry J. Bailey which he is to receive as his portion as far as they go, their being out of date notwithstanding, otherwise he is to be excluded from any interest in my estate except $5. After the intermarriage of Bedford H. Darden with my daughter Mariah Frances, I gave him a negro girl by the name of Minerva who died shortly afterward - I do not wish Bedford to report to my estate said negro. My son Richard Bailey has in his possession a negro man named Peter and woman Pat which I consider my property. The said Richard also commenced an action against me in the Superior Court of Upson Co. GA and the said Richard also sold a crop of cotton for me for which he received $1000. I am security for my son Richard to Peter F. Mahone for between $1200-1500 which sum I expect to have to pay now in the event the said Richard shall report the said negroes Peter and Pat on his schedule as the property of my estate, and shall abandon his claim to and release me from all obligation to pay the amount for which he sued me in said Superior Court, and report on his inventory the said $1000 for my crop of cotton, then he is entitled to his distributive share of my estate otherwise to be cut off with $5, provided the amount I am security for to Peter F. Mahone be deducted from his distributive share. If I should die when there is no crop on the ground, my land to be sold immediately without an order of the court, also my stock, tools, furniture, etc. Another note on Richard Bailey mentioned signed Bailey and Harvey due 25 Dec 1823 for $1400-1500 and also negro man Dick shall be accounted for the estate. Note of Henry J. Bailey also mentioned. Exors: David J. Bailey & Robert H. Dixon. Dated 12 Jan. 1843; signed: Henry Bailey; wit. Robt. H. Dixon, William Holt J.I.C.
