Will of George B. Hamner, Sr.

In the name of God, Amen. I George B. Hamner of the county of Mecklenburg, Virginia, being of sound mind do make this my last will and testament as follows. It is my will and desire that all my just debts be paid and funeral expenses out of my estate and all the residue thereof I give to my wife during her life to be used for her use and benefit as she may think proper, and at her death it is my will and desire that the estate which may be then in being for support be equally divided amongst my children and grandchildren except Howell Jeffries, son of my daughter, Sarah Jeffries, (as his uncle Howell L. Jeffries has provided for him) and my daughter Maria "having given her as much as I intend to out of my estate". It is also my will and desire that Samuel Jeffries, also son of my daughter Sarah, is to have no part of my estate at the death of my wife. It is my will and desire that my wife and my son, William H. Hamner, "shall have the management of my estate".
