In the name of God, Amen:

I, Pendleton Isbell of Pickens District and State of South Carolina, knowing the certainty of

death and wishing to dispose of such worldly effects as it has pleased God to give me, I hereby

Harriet aged about thirteen years of age, and all my household furniture and every and all the

balance of my property except such as is hereinafter disposed of, during her natural life.

Second, I give and bequeath to my daughter Lucinda one dollar if called for within twelve

months after my decease, which I consider to be an equal portion of my property.

Thirdly, I give and bequeath unto my Daughter Arminda in addition to what I have given her

heretofore the sum of one dollar if called for within twelve months after my decease which I

consider will make her portion equal to the rest of my children.
