Will of James Clark McFarland

I James Clark McFarland of Kanawha being of sound mind and memory, sensible of the shortness and uncertainty of this life do after commending my sole(sic) to that Almighty Being who hath hertherto preserved and blessed me, and to whom through his son Jesus Christ I look for eternal life and salvation, make and ordain this my last will and testament in manner and form to wit:

First, I will and desire that all my just debts and funeral charges to be paid to that end, I desire so much of my personal estate (except slaves) be sold as will be required to discharge the same.

Second, The residue of my estate, both real and personal after the payment of all my just debts I desire to be divided as the Law prescribes, between my beloved wife and my children. No prefenances(sic) beiing made, the children to hame any equal share subject however to the following general bequests...... To John Welch in trust for the benefit of the children of Henry D. McFarland deceased [how related?apparenty a brother.] Six hundred dollars, to Julia [McFarland] Welch wife of said John Welch [sister of J.C. McF.] Five hundred dollars and to Susan S. McFarlend [sister]Five hundred dollars in ... she shall marry after my decease, but if she shall not marry then it is my desire that she be comfortably supported out of my estate during life. These several bequests I desire to be paid of practicable out of my personal estate not including Slaves.

Third, In regard to the division of my estate whether the same shall consist of realty, stocks or personal property, Slaves included, let the whole be appraised and after providing for the legacies above named set off one third for my wife during her natural life and let the residue be divided into as many parts as there shall be children to inherit it, the said parts to be drawn for by lots and as it may be impractiable to make an equal division without subdividing certain property, let such heir or heirs as may draw an excessive share in amount account in money or its equivalent to my heir or heirs as may have drawn a share of shares of less value, so that the whole may be made as near equal as possible.
J C McFarland

Fourth, My children now living are Marian [Mirian M.], Rauena [Dulce Rowenna], James R., Annie and Ellen. Accounts have heretofore been opened and sealed in my ledger against the four first named; these accounts must be considered as advances and such as shall thereafter be made and charged as above must be considered and as so much distributed to those who have received or may receive them. The accounts of the same have been thus far accurate kept in my own hand writing. The amount charged to my Elder Daughter Marian [Miriam M.] is much larger than any other child has received, it is my desire that if the final distribution of my estate her amount as it shall then appear shall not be equal to her distribution share, the residue yet coming to her shall not be paid over to or fall into the hand of her husband but to remain in the hands of my executors in trust for the benefit and support of herself and her son James, my grandson for whose education I hereby provide from my estate.

Fifth, In regard to my Slaves (if any I may have) It is not my desire that any of them be sold unless at their express request, and not even then unless they shall chose their Master or Masters (this clause herein shall not apply to any who may be guilty of any gross offence or offences against the law) but it is my wish they remain in the family and be at liberty to make the choice of the child or children whom they or either of them may wish to... and if under the operation of this rule one or more of my children shall obtain an unequal proportion of such property such child or children shall account to the other or others for such inequality by allowing a fair equivalent and I do hereby enjoin upon my heirs in the most solumn (sic) manner to treat my Slaves (should I have any) affectionately and humanely and if any there shall be who have long and faithfully served by my family I shall become old and infirm they shall be comfortably provided for out of my estate during life.

J C McFarland

Sixth, In addition to the several bequests hereinbefore made, I give to iether or all of the following females who may survive me... To my half sisters Abegail, Julia, Susan, my cousins Mariah, Elizae, Sally and Ann McFarland and to my sister in law Cora Ellis, a morning jewel of the value of twenty dollars. These little bequests are not made for their in...[intrinsic?] worth or value, but as memorial of the affection and esteem I have bourn towards them, all whom save one [probably the sister -in-law], I have known from their earliest infancy.

Seventhly, I do hereby appoint my son James Robert McFarland (when he shall have obtained the age of twenty one years) together with my friends George W. Summers and Samuel Hanna Esquires of Kanawha (or either of the two... if both decline to act) Executors of this my last will and testament (revoking all others) the same being written with my own hand hereby releasing and clearing the said Executors from giving the usual bond in such cases, their character and honor being a sufficient pledge of fidelity in the execution of the trust herby reposed.

In Witness Whereof I have unto set my hand and seal (having also signed the 1st and 2nd pages of this sheet) this 17th of September AD 1847.
J C McFarland
