SULLIVAN to her separate use and on her separate receipt during her life, and at her death the entire share or fourth part of my estate to be equally divided amongst her children living at her death. Item. The interest of one share to my daughter HARRIET M. CHILDS, to her separate use during her life and after her death the whole share to go to her child or children living at her death. Item.

The interest of one share to my daughter, MARY ANN BOLT, to her separate use and on her separate receipt during her life and after her death to her lawful issue living at the time of her death. [Note by compiler: the name "Mary Ann Bolt" must have been a clerical error, with the daughter Martha Ann Bolling intended. Tully C. Bolling's will indicates only 3 daughters, not one named Mary Ann.] And should either of my said daughters die without leaving lawful issue of their body living at the time of their death then the share or shares of such daughter or daughters so dying without leaving lawful issue at the time of their death I will to be divided equally amongst my surviving daughters, and the children of very deceased daughter to take the share to which the mother of living would be entitled.
