of life, and being desirous of making a distribution of my estate amongst my

deeming myself under obligations to provide for all entertaining their feelings,
I do hereby make this my last Will & Testament that

my body be decently buried, and my funeral expenses paid.

All my just debts, which are few, to be paid.

It is my will and desire that my lawful wife at the time of my decease,
shall have one third of my real estate during her natural life and such part
of my personal estate as is allowed by law. And after this request it is my
wish and desire that all the residue of my property whether real or personal,
be equally and justly divided between the following persons, who are
my children; To wit:
William B. Asher, Orrah Roberts, Robert Asher, John Asher,
Peggy Farmer, Elizabeth Asher, Peggy Asher,
they being the children of my lawful wife
,
and also I make the following named
children of Sally Davis my equal heirs, believing them to be my children.
Polly Amis, Wilkerson Asher, Jackson Asher,
James Farmer Asher, Cheater (Chester) Asher.

And it further my will and desire that all the above named person
who may be of age at the time of my decease, may have if they choose to take it,
whatever portion of the personal property that may be coming to them
at valuation, and the residue of the property sold and its proceeds
divided equally amongst the children who are not of age,
but it is understood all the parts are to be equal.

I do appoint George Stivers and James Love executors to this my will
in full confidence that they will do justice to all my children and
carry into effect its true intent and meaning.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this
8th day of November 1830
