Sulford Township, Twenty Sixth of February one thousand seven hundred & Thirty four, five. In the name of God. Forasmuch as that my body is mortal & must dye, as other men, and in all likelyhood I may not have a long time here to live, therefore I conclude it necessary to make this my last will & Testament in order that my children may possess & enjoy their share or Dividends of my Estate in severalty after my decease; And Whereas it is held that no Testament is Good without exed. I think meet to appoint my loving and trusty neighbours Christian Allebach & Christian Myer jun, to be my sole exeds over my rights and credits also to take care of my children, believing that they will truly & faithfully discharge their Trust therein. Wherefore I Christian Stauffer of Sulford aforesaid yeoman, Do on this day of the date hereof before, or in the presence of the under written witnesses, order and direct, by this my last will & Testament, that my said Exeds shall within six weeks after my decease, sell all my Land & Improvements, as also, all my household Goods, Chattles, Husbandry Implements, with all other that I am the proper owner of (except one over bedstead with two coverings for the same, also one Boulster & one pillow, all which I give & bequeath unto my Daughter Barbary).
And when the money arising by the sale of my said Estate becomes due & payable, I order then, that first of all my just debts be duly paid and afterwards, the remainder thereof I dispose between my children in manner following viz: I Give & Bequeath unto my eldest daughter Annalee Five pounds to be paid her when the said money becomes due as aforesaid. I Give and Bequeath unto my eldest son Mathias one pound in the first place to be paid him when the said money is due as aforesaid and afterwards, immediately Five pounds as an equal share with his sisters to be paid him in like manner. I Give & Bequeath unto my son Christian Stauffer Tenn pounds to be paid him when the said money becomes due as aforesaid. I Give & Bequeath unto my son Hans Ulrick Tenn pounds & unto my son Peter Ten pounds, and unto my son Jacob Ten pounds and unto my said Daughter Barbara Ten pounds, and unto my son Henry Tenn pounds and unto my daughter Elizabeth Ten pounds, which said Legacies shall be paid to each and every one of my said children, when they goes to housekeeping, and such of my said children that are housekeepers before the said money is due. Shall stay for their shares or Dividends until the same becomes due & payable by the sale aforesaid. And what is over & above paying and performing as before directed, So much of the remainder part thereof, that is necessary shall be used toward bringing up of my younger children until my said Daughter Elizabeth arrives at fifteen years of age, She being now four years & a half old. And if there be any left of my said Estate, that is not used as aforesaid, the same shall be divided after the same method with the above Legacies (that is to say) where each of my eldest doth receive one pound, each and every one of my seven youngest Children shall receive Two pounds and so proportionably until the whole is divided. My children that are now at home must have good cloaths before they goes to get their living among their Friends or strangers, and for the further confirmation hereof I have hereunto set my hand and sealed the same with my own seal the day and year first above written.
