$1000 paid to three children out of cash and cash notes: Elizabeth Simpson, Richard E. Maosn and Mary H.H. Spencer. Remainder of cash and cash notes to go to son William J. Mason. Son Richard was owed money by her so she assigned a note on Davis R. Mason for $600 in c. 1837 to Richard, with security by William J. Mason; also another note of $100 about the same time assigned to Richard for “a fictitious consideration”.
$1000 willed to Richard in first part of will is intended to cover those notes and whatever amount he may receive from the notes is to be paid to him out of the $1000. If amount exceeds $1000, excess is to be subtracted fro his share of money derived from sale of her slaves.
Directed slaves to be hired out until grandson Lewis G. Stone is 21. Gave him $300 provided he make title to William J. Mason the land that William P. Stone (husband of dau.

Elizabeth Moore (Elizabeth McClelland Dunlap Kimbro Moore)
Bourbon County Will Book G: 316-317
I, Elizabeth Moore of Bourbon County, being now weak in body but of sound disposing mind and memory and being authorized by deed of marriage settlement between myself and my husband John Moore of one part and Thomas P. Smith, William Mitchell and Benjamin Mills as Trustees of the other to appoint the uses, purposes and ends to which the Estate conveyed by said deed shall be applied do make the following appointments and disposition thereof and do divide it to pass as herein directed.
All the slaves named in said deed of trust which shall be twenty five years of age are at my decease to be emancipated and set free by said Trustees provided however that if any are hired out at my decease there [their] term of hire is to end before they are liberated and if the title of all or any of them is disputed the said Trustees shall retain them and hire them out till such dispute is settled and if any of them shall be recovered from said Trustees and Absalom the son of Nan on Nancy should be so recovered the said Trustees are directed to repurchase him out of the funds of my Estate conveyed to them if said purchase can be made on reasonable terms, and then to liberate him at the age of twenty-five years, he being first bound to learn some good trade. All the rest of my slaves which shall be under the age of twenty five years, and are conveyed by said deed or the issue of such as are conveyed born before my decease shall serve till the age of twenty five years and then be emancipated by said Trustees purview that care shall be taken to learn them to read the scriptures of the old and new Testament before their emancipation.
The issue of all the females which may be born after my decease and before their mothers arrive at the age of twenty five years may be given up to the county court by said Trustees till they arrive at the age of twenty five years to be bound out, but care is to be taken that in their Indentures till the age of twenty five, as much education was will learn them to read the scriptures is to be secured to them and at the end of their Indentures they are to be free, it being intended that none shall serve longer. As to the slave Mary who is delicate and a cripple she is not capable of enjoying her freedom. I therefore wish her provided for in some humane family who will treat her well as a servant or to be sent to her mother who I understand lives in the state of Ohio to be supported by her and I prefer the latter course to be taken. The personal Estate, that is whatever is included in said deed except Land and slaves I direct to be sold at a reasonable credit, the farm is to be rented out, and the slaves hired out which fund so raised I make the following bequests. My husband John Moore is to be decently supported out of said fund during his natural life and is to receive not less than one hundred dollars in specie per annum. I direct and appoint one hundred dollars in specie to be paid for the education of Samuel McClelland Moore infant son of James Moore which may be placed in the hands of his uncle John Moore. I direct also one hundred dollars to be paid to Elizabeth Ardery infant daughter of Alexander Ardery and to be lodged in safe hands for her benefit and not in the hands of her Father and I prefer the hands of John Moore. I direct one hundred dollars to be paid to Sally Frasier an orphan whom I have raised and that said Trustees furnish her with a bed out of the personal Estate in addition to what I have already given her which is a mare and saddle and bit. In case the Presbyterian Congregation at Stoner Mouth shall agree to erect a new church [I] direct said Trustees to subscribe and put to that purpose one hundred dollars specie. After these legacies are paid or secured and contracts about the Estate so conveyed shall be settled and all debts, expenses, and reasonable commissions are paid for the management thereof all the remaining money arising from slaves or personal Estate, and also the price of the tract of land which the Trustees may sell if they find it advantageous, or if not sold the Land itself in kind I direct and appoint to be transferred and conveyed to the Trustees of the Centre College of Kentucky at Danville, provided said institution is placed under the exclusive control of the synod of Kentucky as provided by a late act of the Legislature of Kentucky to be counted and held as a donation on the part of said synod. And the said Trustees of the marriage settlement may endow a professorship or scholarship by said fund. But if any event should happen which should prevent the synod from taking the contract thereof, then the said fund may be transferred by said Trustees to the corporation which manages the Theological School at Princeton, or if that institution should not exist at that time then the Transfer is to be made to the Trustees of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America.
And the bequests of money hereby directed I will add another omitted in its proper place. One hundred dollars is directed to be appropriated by said Trustees to the purpose of procuring tombstones for my mother, my daughter Jane and my husband and myself.
In testimony whereof I have set my hand and seal this 23rd of February 1825.
