GEORGIA, Oglethorpe County: Patton (1822)

This is another contribution from Kristi; it is an excerpt from the will of my six times great grandfather, Samuel Patton (1755-1822) in Oglethorpe County, Georgia.

Samuel Patton dated 15 February 1817, recorded 10 May 1822.

"I lend to my beloved wife Mary Patton until my youngest child comes of age, should she continue a widow, the land and plantation whereon I now live, with all my negroes ... And when my youngest child comes of age, I lend to my wife during her natural life, one negro of her own having one bed and furniture ... I give to my son, Samuel one negro boy named BOB in lieu of all and every part of my estate.
