And my worldly estate I give and advise as following.

First, It is my wish and desire that my Executor hereafter named, should as soon as practicable proceed to pay all and just demands that may be against my Estate, out of the disposable part of my property --

Second, It is my wish & I do hereby Loan to my wife Elizabeth Carlisle, the Lot of Land wherein I live containing two Hundred and twenty acres, and five negroes to wit, Mark, Sarah, Patt, Jule & Siller with and during her life time or widow hood for the Express purpose of raising and educating my children that have not left me, and I wish it expressly understood that my wish and meaning is that the above property should be kept together and improved for the above c/purpose untill my Youngest child (Elizabeth) comes of age marries or dies and then for the whole (Except a negro girl named Siller) to be sold and equally divided among or with my wife and my children (to wit) William W. Carlisle, James W. Carlisle, Robin W. Carlisle, Green W. Carlisle, Edmund Carlisle, Jr., Michael Jackson Carlisle, and Elizabeth Carlisle; and the said negro girl Siller, should my said wife Elizabeth by then be thru living, I loan to her for and during her natural life and at her death to be equally divided among the seven above named children.
