YEAST, Peter

In the name of God Amen.  I, Peter Yeast of Allegany County, State of Maryland being sick and weak of body, but of sound and disposing mind, memory and understanding, considering the certainty of death and the uncertainty of the time thereof, and being desirous to settle my worldly affairs, and thereby be the better prepared to leave this world when it shall please God to call me hence, do therefore make and publish this, my last will and testament in manner and form following, that is to say:
First and principally, I commit my soul into the hands of Almighty God and my body to the earth, to be decently buried and after my debts and funeral charges ar paid, I devise and bequeath as follows after my debts are all paid.
I devise and bequeath all my property of whatsoever kind, real and personal to my dear wife Sarah for her natural life, or so long as she remains my widow; at her death, or in the event of her getting married, all the property herein bequeathed and devised shall descend equally to my children: namely, William, John, Alfred, Thomas, Elizabeth and James Michael Yeast.
There remains yet to be paid five hundred dollars, due in seven years, on the real estate which I purchased of W. M. F. Magraw and Aza Beall and their wifes[sic], which sum of money it is my wish shall be paid when due or sooner, if possible without a sale of the above real estate, or any part therof[sic], but if it becomes necessary to sell any part for the payment of the said five hundred dollars, it is my wish it shall be taken from the back part of the land.  In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and affixed my seal this Eleventh day of June in the year of our Lord one thousand Eight hundred and fifty one.
