Text: In the name of God Amen. I, William Cameron, of the County of Christian and State of Kentucky being very sick and weak in body but of perfect mind and memory thanks be to God calling into mind the state of my body and knowing it is appointed for all men once to die do make and ordain this my last will and testament. First of all I recommend my soul to the almighty God that gave it and my body to the grave nothing doubting but I shall receive the same again by the power of that almighty Being who gave and as touching such worldly estate as it hath pleased God to bestow on me I give devise and dispose of in following form:
First: I give and bequeath my estate to the management of my dearly beloved wife to be kept together during the time of her widowhood or lifetime if remaining in a single capacity, but in case of marriage if she should marry the property to be sold and equally divided between her and the children and each having an equal part.
Sealed and delivered in presence of us this the 18th day of December 1810.
/s/ Wm. Cameron
