Last Will and Testament of William Friend
Contributed by Mary Gallagher

In the Name of God Amen

I Friend MCMAHON, Sr. of the County of Newton and State of Texas being in my usual good health of body and of sound and disposig mind and memory and being desirous to settle and fix my worldly affairs whilst I have strength and capacity so to do, do make and publish this my last will and Testament hereby revoking and making void all former wills by me at any time heretofore made.

And first and principally I commit my soul unto the hands and care of my Creator who gave it; and my body to the Earth to be buried in a plain decent manner, And as regards such worldly Estate wherewith it hath pleased God to entrust me, I dispose of the same as followeth (To wit)

First. It is my will that my son James MCMAHON shall heir and possess my whole and entire Estate both real personal and mixed. I therefore give without reserve to my Son James MCMAHON my whole and entire Estate to own use and dispose of, manage and control as he pleases.

Second. It is my will that at my demise this my last will and Testament shall be probated at the will of my Executor and that no further action shall be required to make inventory of or give bond and security for said Estate, but exercise and enjoy the same without legal cost.

Third. I do hereby make and ordain my Son James MCMAHON my Executor to this my last will and Testament.

Done, made and executed by me on this 10th day of December, A.D., 1859 with my own signature and seal in the presence of the Subscribing Witnesses.
