      Following is a copy of a copy of Benjamin Borden's will, punctuated
      and corrected in spelling:
      "In the name of God, Amen. The third day of April, in the year of
      our Lord one thousand seven hundred and forty-two, I, Benjamin
      Borden, or Orange County, in Virginia, yeoman, being in good state
      of health and sound mind and memory--thanks be it to God for
      it--therefore, calling unto mind the mortality of my body, I do make
      this my last will and testament; that is to say, principally, and
      first of all, I give and recommend my soul unto God that gave it,
      and for my body I recommend it to the earth, to be buried in a
      Christian-like manner at the discretion of my executors, nothing
      doubting but at the General Resurrection I shall receive the same
      again by the mighty power of God, and touching such worldly estate
      [as] it hath pleased God to bless me with in this life, I give and
      dispose of the same in manner and form following: Imprimis, I will
      all the funeral charges and my just debts should be paid and
      satisfied. Item. I give and bequeath to Zeuriah Borden, my wife, all
      the improvements and what lands she has or shall have occasion to
      clear as long as she remains my widow; and if she should get
      married, then she shall have but half the improvements and what land
      she and her husband should have occasion to clear of this plantation
      I now live on in Orange County, in Virginia, on Spout Run, during
      her natural life. Item. I give and bequeath to my son Benjamin
      Borden and my son John Borden and my son Joseph Borden, to them and
      their heirs and assigns forever, this plantation, and the lot on the
      said Spout Run that my well stands on, and one hundred and fifty
      acres I have agreed to rent to my said three sons, to be equally
      divided between my son Benjamin and my son John and my son Joseph
      Borden, in quality to be divided by way of lots drawing between my
      sons Benjamin and John and Joseph Borden, guardians, that is, all
      this plantation I now live on, excepting eight hundred acres I give
      to Edward Rogos and his wife Hannah Rogos and the heirs of her body
      forever, and five hundred acres I give William Yeamley [Feamley] and
      my daughter Marcy, his wife, to them and their heirs forever. Item.
      I give to my daughter Hannah Rogos but five shillings, she having
      her portion before. My will is, that all my lands and estate that I
      have in New Jersey should be sold, and all my lands on Bullskin and
      my lands on South Creek and North Shenandoah, and all my entries
      everywhere, and all my lands on the waters of James River should be
      sold ,excepting five thousand acres of land that in all good I give
      to five of my daughters, that is, Abigail Worthington and Rebecca
      Bronson and to Deborah Borden and Lydia Borden and to Elizabeth
      Borden, that is one thousand acres of good land apiece to every one
      of said five daughters above mentioned, to them and their heirs and
      assigns forever; and all the rest of my land to be sold, as
      aforesaid, excepting this I now live on, to be all sold and equally
      divided between my wife and my son Benjamin and my son John and my
      son Joseph and my daughter Abigail Worthington and daughter Rebecca
      Bronson and my daughter Marcy Yeamly [Feamley] and my [daughter]
      Deborah Borden and my daughter Elizabeth and my daughter Lydia
      Borden; and my movables to be divided between my said wife and sons
      Benjamin, John and Joseph Borden, and my aforesaid six daughters,
      Abigail, Rebecca, Marcy and Deborah, Lydia and Elizabeth Borden.
      First before my movable estate be divided, there must be taken out
      my great brown riding horse and my bay mare that came of my [two
      words here not decipherable] Mag [or May], and the best bed, with
      furniture, be it good, that I have in the house, that I give to my
      wife first of all; the rest to be equally between my wife and my
      aforesaid three sons and six daughters aforesaid divided. I
      constitute and appoint my wife executrix, and my son Benjamin and my
      son-in-law William Feamley executors of this my last will and
      testament, and to execute deeds for the lands I have sold and
      ordered to be sold. This will I publish to be my last will and
      testament, and all other wills made by me void. [Here follows
      mention of some interlinings and erasures, made before sealing and
      signing.].
      [Signed.] BENJN. BORDEN. (Seal.)
      Here follows the names of five witnesses.
      Proved and admitted to record "at court held for Frederick County on
      Friday, the 9th day of December, 1743."
