Greene County Tennessee Wills, 29:116a
"Third day of May 1796. The Will of Robert Gragg Being low in body, but in perfect mind, and of good memory, I make this my last will and testament.
I do give and bequeath to my two Beloved sons John and William, the land I now possess to them and their heirs forever. And the executors shall so divide the land so as to have each an equal in value and improvements considered and that one shall not dispose of his part without the consent of the other.
I give to John my sorrel horse, bay mare, old cattle, four sheep and half the hogs. To William, the young sorrel mare, gray horse, one grown cow, two young cattle, four sheep and half the hogs, my wifes gun, the big pot and crook. To John the little oven and little pot and crook and one plow to William.
I do bequeath to my beloved daughter Abigail Gregg the young rone mare, one cow, three sheep, her bed and bedding and half the dresser.
To my Beloved daughter Betsy Gregg one bed and bedding.
To my Beloved son Robert Gragg, my big Bible.
To my Beloved son Samuel Gragg, my sword. All that remains at my death over and above paying legatees above mentioned and what money is coming from Virginia that may remain at my death, after paying Col. Kelley, also it is my desire that out of the price of the Steed named Shakespeare that there shall be 25 lbs Virginia currency to be paid to my daughter Betsy when she marries.
I do bequeath to my sons Thomas Gragg, Henry Gragg, Samuel Gragg, and Robert Gragg, Benjamin Crow, George Malcolm, and Joseph McMurtry an equal share of what remains after paying legatees above.
I do bequeath to my sons John and William each of them their axes, and what books remain at my death except the Bible and the harrow, to be equally divided.
I do likewise constitute and appoint, make and ordain my two beloved sons Samuel and Robert to be my sole executors. My desire is that John and William live and work together. That William trade none, but John be sole actor for him while they work together, but if they separate the executors is to take Williams estate all in their hands and keep it till he is twenty-one years old. I ratify this to be my last will and hereby revoke all others. Signed Robert Gregg
Benjamin Crow, Jurat William Wall"[1]
