All debts and funeral expenses are to be paid by Joseph Griswold, of New York, distiller, and James Barker, of Woodstock, in Albany County, Gentleman, whom I make executors. I leave to them all my lands and tenements in this Province, in Trust, to sell and pay all debts, and they are to have £50 for their trouble.
I leave to my wife 1/3, in lieu of all claims, and the rest to be put at interest for supporting and bringing up my daughters, Elizabeth and Margaret, until they are of age. I leave to my daughter Elizabeth, when of age, £400, and the rest to be divided between them. If both die, without issue, then the whole is to go to Hubert Lynott, son of my brother, Luke Lynott, and to my cousin, Sibby Lynott, of Dublin, in Ireland, and to the children of my sister, Mary Hutchinson.
