      And as to, for and concerning all my real estate of which I shall die seized or entitled to at the time of my decease in possession, reversion, remainder or expectancy or otherwise howsoever or of which any person or persons shall be seized in trust for me at the time of my decease, I give and devise the same unto my said wife to hold unto and to the use of her my said wife, her heirs and assigns forever

      And as to all the rest and residue of my personal estate of what nature or kind soever or wheresoever of which I shall die possessed or entitled to at the time of my decease, in possession, reversion, remainder or expectancy, after payment of my said debts, funeral and testamentary expenses, I give and bequeath the same to my said wife to and for her own use and benefit absolutely.

      And I do hereby revoke, annul and make void all and every former and other Will and Wills or Testamentary disposition by me at any time heretofore made and do publish and declare this only as and for my last Will and Testament.

      IN WITNESS WHEREOF I have hereto set and affixed my hand and seal this fifth [5] day of May in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and three [1803].
