Nathan's son, John, did not move from Wilkes County but, David, Moses, Nathan Jr. and Elizabeth, did move with Nathan to Indiana. David, Moses and Elizabeth, later moved to Whitley County, Kentucky. News of the free land in Indiana, which was now a state, was sweeping Wilkes County at this time. The timber was so thick in Indiana that the ground could not dry out and the timber had to be cleared and the land drained before it could be used.

Also one hundred dollars in money to be laid out in land and further that said horse may be sold for money at his value (by David Stansburg) to help make payments for a piece of land by David Stansbury being accountable to Moses for his value in time to make payments for a piece of land in purchase. Also, my saddle, an axe and a hoe. (Imprimie) I give unto my daughter Elizabeth six plates, also twenty eight dollars and fifty cents in the hands of Daniel Jackson for money by him received for a horse sold to him. (Imprimie) I give to my son David one hundred dollars, also my wagon with all pertaining to it, together with the corn I have in my crib. Also, a kettle, some tools and other small articles. And I do finally by these present make Adam Banks my sole executor to see to this business being transacted according to law. In testimony whereof I have hereunto caused my name publically to be assigned this 13th day of February, 1819 in the presence of Adam Banks. Thomas P.
