Transcribed will of Martin Luther Kibler
KIBLER, MARTIN - Will Book E-70
Executors shall sell all my personal property except my negroes, at public sale & out of the proceeds pay all my just debts & funeral expenses.
Wife, Dorothy Kibler - part of my real estate & part of the proceeds of my personal property & money, bonds during her natural life. In addition I give my wife one of my slaves, which she may choose.
Remaining of my estate both real & personal be equally divided amongst all my children & at the death of my wife, the property devised to her also equally divided amongst all my children.
The portion of my property which would fall to my daughter, Catharine Skelton, shall not be paid over to her but shall be retained by my Executors to be expended for her use & benefit & should my said daughter Catharine die before she shall have consumed the legacy, then the legacy it shall be divided amongst all her children except Aptel Rickard, who for reasons known to God & myself, I never intend should have any part or portion of my estate either real or personal. I also direct that that portion of my estate which under the provisions of this will would fall to my daughter Catharine Skelton in land, shall be sold by my executors & the money held by them for her use.
