In the name of God, Amen. I, Uriah Hardman, of the County of Oglethorpe and State of Georgia, being in a low state of health but of perfect memory, do make this, my Last Will and Testament, as follows:

I resign my soul to God who gave it, and my body to be buried in a decent manner by my family and friends, and as to my worldly goods that it hath pleased God to bless me with, I give and bequeath in the following manner:

I lend to my beloved wife, Fanney Hardman, all my estate, both real and personal, during her natural life or widowhood, except one bay horse and saddle I give to my son Samuel Hardman; also young gray mare I give to my son, Isaiah Hardman, to them and their heirs forever, and as for my daughter, Nancy Stedman, wife of Eli Stedman, I have already given what I intended to give her, which is as follows: A tract of land, the quantity now not known, but lies as follows: Beginning at a road running from Able Gowers across Cloud's Creek; thence up the creek to or near the old forge adjoining Alex Gordon's lands, it being all my lands from the above mentioned road, to her and her heirs forever, and as to the rest of my estate above mentioned which I lend to my beloved wife, Fanney Hardman, which is all I possess, both real and personal, except what I have given my two sons, Samuel and Isaiah Hardman and my daughter Stedman, and at the death of my wife, Fanny Hardman, I desire
my estate to be equally divided between my sons, Samuel, Isaiah, Naman, Lethe, Allen, John, William and Elizabeth Hardman, and my two sons Samuel and Isaiah Hardman, at that time to pay to my other children, Naman, Lethe, Allen, John, William and Elizabeth Hardman, a proportionable part of what the horse and mare I now give is now worth.
