Will of Thomas Rand 1865

Be it remembered that I Thomas Rand of Epsom in the County of Merrimack and State of New Hampshire, husbandman, considering the uncertainty of this mortal life and being of sound and perfect mind and memory do make and publish this my last will and testament in manner and form following viz:
1 I give and bequeath unto my granddaughter Helen Eliza Thayer daughter of Eliza B. Thayer the sum of one dollar. I do also give and bequeath unto my eldest son Jacob B. Rand one dollar.
2 I do also give and bequeath unto my two granddaughters Martha Elizabeth Rand and Ellen Clough Rand, daughters of my son Newell Rand, one dollar each.
3 I so also give and bequeath unto my two daughters Mary Jane Chadwick and Rebecca S. Rand one dollar each
4 I do give and bequeath and devise unto my beloved wife Sally Rand the residue of my estate whether real or personal whatever and wherever it may be found after paying the above mentioned legacies and all of my just debts to be hers as long as she shall remain my widow and no longer. And when my wife Sally Rand shall cease to be my widow by death or otherwise, it is my will that the said residue of all my real and personal estate of what kind so-ever shall go to my youngest son George Henry Rand to him and to his heirs to inherit forever.
Lastly, I do hereby constitute and appoint my said wife Sally Rand sole Executrix of this my last will and testament.
In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this twenty fourth day of December in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and fifty five.

Thomas Rand
Probated December 1865
