    In the name of God, Amen. This 5th day of March, 1750, I, Martin Alexander, being in perfect mind and memory, do make and appoint this to be my last will and testament. I do appoint my beloved wife, Susannah, to be sole executrix of this last will and testament. I will that all my just debts be paid.

    I give and bequeath unto my son, David, the one half of the plantation where I now dwell during his mother's life, but not allowing him to sell or rent it during her life, and after her death the whole to him, his heirs and assigns forever, provided that he pay or secure unto my son, Amos, twenty pounds when he shall arrive at the age of twenty one years.

    I give and bequeath unto my son, Moses, that land that lies in New Castle County, provided that he secure unto my son, Aaron, fifteen pounds when he shall arrive at the age of twenty one years.

    I give and bequeath to my son, Eli, the land which I purchased of Thomas Stratton, to him, his heirs and assigns forever, provided that he secure unto my son, Amos, the sum of fifteen pounds when he shall arrive at the age of twenty one years.

    I do further will, that if any of my above named sons, David, Moses, or Eli, shall refuse to pay the above named legacies, that any of my other three sons, James, Aaron, or Amos, so refused, shall come in for one half of the land left to him that so refused him his legacy to pay.

    I do further will, if any of my three eldest sons shall die issueless and intestate and without assignors that James shall succeed David, Aaron shall succeed Moses, and Amos shall succeed Eli in the above said lands.

    I give and bequeath to my daughter, Rebecca, the feather bed called her bed, together with a coverlit and blanket, bolster and pillows, and four ewes and lambs.

    I give and bequeath unto my daughter, Sarah, the bed called David's bed with a blanket, coverlit, bolster and pillows within these three years or sooner if her mother pleases.

    I give and bequeath each of my sons, David, Moses, Eli, James, Aaron, Amos, and Josiah, one shilling a piece of my personel estate.

    I give and bequeath to my abovesaid wife all the residue of my personal estate provided that upon her second marriage, she give security to the court or commissary, to pay to my son, Josiah, thirty pounds when he shall come of age, or, if she refuses to give such sacurity, to pay him half what two honest men shall value the said residue to be worth, after my decease, to keep my son, Josiah, from being defrauded by her then husband, and I do further will that the values of such residues annexed to this will, and forthwith put upon record, but no administration because she will have neither debts nor legacies to pay or answer till she marry again.

    I will that in case my son, David's child or children should die under age, that my son, James, should still have this plantation.

    I will that not above six acres of this plantation be cleared during my wife's life.

    In witness whereof, I have set my hand and seal hereunto this 10th day of March, 1750. Signed, sealed pronounced, and delivered in the presence of us. Before singing and sealing, I give and bequeath unto my sister, Mary Lowry, all that part of a tract of land called Alexandria which my father received to himself, during her life, and afterwards to her six daughters, to them, their heirs, and assigns forever.
