*NB: Apparently the clerk took liberties when copying the will, using the Anglicized version of her name. Her name was Ann Maria, not Mary Ann.  It seems that Ann Maria had been married previously and had at least one daughter by her former husband.

WEINBRENNER, (Johann) Christian, [the immigrant]
 
In the name of God Amen. I, Christian Weinbrenner of Hagerstown in the County of Washington and in the State of Maryland being sick and weak of body but of sound and well disposing mind memory and understanding, thanks be unto God for the same do hereby make and ordain this to be my last will and testament in manner and form hereinafter mentioned.
First and principally of all I recommend my soul to God who gave it and my body to the earth  to be decently interred and as touching and concerning such worldly estate and effects wherewith it hath pleased God to bless me in this life, I give devise and dispose of the same in the following manner to wit.
Item
It is my will that my just debts and funeral expenses be paid of and out of my estate by my Executor hereinafter named and appointed as soon as conveniently can be done after my decease.

Item
It is my will and I do hereby order and direct that my beloved wife Ann Maria, shall have use, occupy, possess and enjoy my House and lot with the appurtenances wherein I now live and my four out lots in the addition to Hagerstown during her natural life.  But it is also my will that my said wife, shall as long as she lives, live in and occupy at least a part of the house and lot herself even if she does rent a part of the other for her own use, she shall not be at liberty to rent the whole of my property will'd to her.  If she does and leases the entire house than[sic] shall her right therefrom cease and shall not be considered as her property any longer. 

Item
It is my will and I do hereby give and bequeath unto my beloved wife Ann Maria one Bedstead with the bedding belonging thereto of her own choice, one Cow and the Hay that is in the stable, one Iron Pot, one iron Washkettle, one Bucking Tub, one Small Tub, Two Small buckets, one ten plate Store with the pipe, my Clock, Corner Cupboard and table in the room, one Kitchen dresser that is in the Kitchen and all the other furniture and things that she has and brought to me at the time we were married all of which I give unto my wife and her heirs forever.

Item.
It is my will and I do hereby give and bequeath unto my beloved wife Ann Maria yearly and every year as long as she lives the sum of twenty four dollars, to be paid her by my executor out of my estate but it is also my will that if the above sum should not be sufficient for the support of my wife, than[sic] shall my executor be at liberty to pay her so much more as he thinks will be necessary and not otherwise.

Item.
It is also my will that the necessary repairs belonging to the house and lots given to my wife during her natural life, shall be made and repaid by my executor and the expences thereof to be paid out of my estate as long as my wife lives.

Item.
It is also my will that all my personal estate which is not disposed of in this will shall as soon as convenient after my decease be sold and converted into money by my Executor and after said personal estate is converted in money than[sic] shall the same be put out on interest for the purpose of paying the necessary repairs and expenses that may accrue on the property that is devised to my said wife, and also to pay the twenty four dollars &c to my wife yearly as before directed and if the interest of said money should not be sufficient to discharge the above expenses yearly than[sic] shall my executor be at liberty to take as much from the principal of my estate as will satisfy the same.

Item
I have also sold a lot at the Corner of **Franklin and Jonathan Street with the improvements known by number Seventy five and one out lot in the addition to Hagerstown number __ to a certain John Cramer (whitesmith) for which property we entered into agreement and as there is no money paid on said lots excepting what is mentioned in the agreement and some other accounts, the said Cramer has against me in consequence of which I never made him a deed of conveyance but nevertheless hold a mortgage against him the said Cramer for the security of said lots and also a mortgage for the House and lots he lives in.  Therefore it is my will that as soon as said John Cramer discharges the principal with the interest agreeable to our contract in the agreement and mortgages than[sic] shall my Executor make and execute such deed of conveyance as will invest him the said John Cramer his heirs and assigns forever of the same title and privelegs[sic] as if given by myself.  But it is also my will that if the said John Cramer cannot perform agreeable to said agreement or give such satisfaction to my Executor as he thinks proper within one year after my decease than shall my executor have full power and is hereby fully authorized to sell the aforesaid two lots and property to the best advantage he can and make such deed of conveyance of the same to the purchaser or purchasers thereof as if made and given by myself and not otherwise. 

Item.

Item.
It is my will and I do hereby order and direct that after the death of my wife Ann Maria, All my houses lots and lands and all other effects both real and personal shall be sold and converted into money as soon as possible and the money arising therefrom with the other money that may remain of my other part of estate that was converted and sold before the decease of my said wife shall be equally divided amongst all my children share and share alike. 

Item.
And it is my will and I do hereby authorize and empower my executor to make and execute such deed or deeds of conveyance of all my real estate as will vest a full title to the purchaser or purchasers thereof the same as if given by myself. 

Item
And it is my will that the part or equal share of my estate that my oldest daughter Catharine would be entitle[sic] to shall be retained in the hands of my executor as long as her husband John Snider lives but my executor is to pay my daughter Catharine the interest of her share yearly as soon as my estate is divided amongst my children.  But it is also my will that if her husband John Snider should die before my daughter Catharine, than[sic] shall She be entitled to draw her equal share of my estate with the rest of my children. It is also my will that if my daughter Catharine should die before her husband, than[sic] shall her children be entitled to their mother's share and receive the same by my executor to be divided amongst them equal share and share alike and not otherwise.

And lastly I do hereby nominate constitute and appoint William Kreps Executor of this my last will and testament.  And I do hereby revoke all former will and testaments by me heretofore made and ratify and confirm this and no other to be my last will and testament.  In Witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal the seventeenth day of November in the year of our Lord One Thousand eight hundred and fifteen.
