                  Edward TAYLOR's Will
                  -----------------------------------------------------------------
                  1 Mar 1872--Boone County, Kentucky
                  
                  Be it known that I, Edward TAYLOR, of the county and state
                  aforesaid, being of sound mind and knowing the uncertainty of
                  life and having some property, I make this my last will and
                  testament for the purpose of disposing of what property I have as
                  I wish it done after my death.
                  
                  First, it is my wish and will that after all my just debts are
                  paid, that my beloved wife, Margaret TAYLOR, who has toiled with
                  me through life and helped make what property we possess, shall
                  have the full control, use and benefit during her natural life of
                  all the property, real and personal, which may be left of my
                  estate after my just debts are paid.  After the death of my said
                  wife, it is my wish and will and thereby devise to my daughter,
                  Elizabeth TAYLOR (commonly called Bess) the house in which I now
                  reside, including the outhouse and ten acres of land to be laid
                  off in convenient shape around the said house.  To my daughter,
                  Ellen, who also resides with us, I will and hereby devise four
                  hundred and fifty dollars, to be taken from whatever may be left
                  of my estate after the death of my wife, Margaret, and deducting
                  the land and improvements devised as aforesaid to Elizabeth
                  (commonly called Bess) and I further give and bequeath in
                  addition to the before mentioned bequests to my said two
                  daughters, Elizabeth and Ellen, in equal shares, all the beds,
                  bedding and household furniture of my estate that may be on hand
                  at the death of their said mother, Margaret TAYLOR, and I
                  further, in addition specially devise to my said daughter,
                  Elizabeth, one cow to be selected by her from the common stock of
                  cattle of my estate after the death of her said mother.  I also
                  specially devise to my daughter, Margaret Morrison, a small
                  heifer, not having given her a cow when she married and left us.
                  The foregoing special devises to my daughters Elizabeth and Ellen
                  are made in consideration of their having remained with us and
                  with great care and labors, nursed their afflicted mother and me.
                  
                  Second, having made such special devises as aforesaid and such as
                  I think just and right, it is my further wish and will that all
                  the remainder of my estate after deducting the foregoing said
                  special devises and after the death of my said wife, shall be
                  equally divided to our children, Mrs. Margaret Morrison, George
                  TAYLOR, Samuel TAYLOR, Mrs. Ann Jane McGlasson, Arthur TAYLOR,
                  Ellen TAYLOR and Elizabeth (commonly called Bess) TAYLOR, each of
                  them to share equally in the distribution of the remainder of my
                  estate after deducting the special devises as aforesaid, it being
                  distinctly understood that nothing devised in this, my last will,
                  is to pass to my children until after the death of my said wife,
                  Margaret, and further as part of this, my last will, I name and
                  wish appointed as executors, to carry into effect all its
                  provisions, my sons George TAYLOR and Samuel TAYLOR.
                  
                  In witness, whereof I have written my name, day and date above
                  written.                           Signed Edward TAYLOR
