Hardy County Clerk’s Office

            I, Tabitha Vanmeter of Hardy County and State of Virginia, being of sound mind but as life is uncertain, and death is the common lot of all mankind, I do make and constitute this, as my last Will and testament.

Item.    My Body, I resign to its Mother Earth, and my soul to God who gave it.

Item     I give and devise to my four beloved and affectionate daughters, viz. Ann, Rebecca, Susan and Sally I. Vanmeter, for their faithful services, all the property bequeathed to me by the Will of my beloved & deceased husband, Jacob Van Meter, together with all the property which I possess, of all, and every description, to be equally divided among them, for their use and benefit forever, and to be disposed of as they may think most meet and proper.

            In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and seal this 28 day of December in the year of our Lord, 1829.

                                                                        Tabitha Vanmeter  (seal)
