In the name of God Amen: I James Magee of the County of Panola and State of Mississippi being of sound mind and memory and considering the uncertainty of this frail and transitory life do therefore make, ordain, publish and declair this to be my last will and testament. That is to say:

First, after all my lawful debts are paid and discharged the residue of my estate real and personal I give, bequeath and dispose of as follows, to wit: I give unto my beloved wife Edney the tract of land on which I now live, consisting of the following land -- the south west quarter of section 23 except what I have deeded to my sons Patrick and Marion-- the north half of section 26, the west half and southwest quarter of section 22 and all appertenances thereon -- during her life and widowhood and the household and kitchen furniture, the farming tools of every kind, my wagon and three work oxen and the following horses: Tom, mares known by the names of Peg and Diana, a three year old horse colt and a sucking male colt by Diana and a three year old horse colt, all the hogs, cattle, sheep and goats and all the provisions laid in to support the family the present year. I also give her during her life or widowhood, my negro man Ramon and my negro woman Ellen and her two younger children.

I give to my daughter Martha Ann a negro girl called Luian aged about 13 years, valued at 800 dollars and a small mare called Pumpkin.

I give to my daughter Lavinia Ann a negro girl called Sarah aged about nine years, valued at 700 dollars and a two year old bay colt.

I give to my son Robert a negro boy named Moses aged eleven years and a spotted colt. The boy Moses valued at 800 dollars, on condition that he is to have control or management of him nor to trade him until Robert becomes 21 years old.

It is my wish, if the slaves named above should be lost or taken away from Martha Ann, Lavernia and Robert by the yankees, that their value be made up to them out of my other estate at the death of their mother. The lands I have deeded to my sons in my life as an advancement, I wish them to account for in a general settlement at the death of my wife, and those who have had no lands given to them in my life time to wit: Patrick, Riley and Robert, I wish made equal to them, each one to account for his land at the price I have named in their deeds. The negroes I have given my daughters have been in lieu of lands and I wish them to come in for an equal distribution share in a general Settlement. I wish Joseph, Riley and Marion to have a horse each or its value. The money and cotton I have now on hand I wish to be used to pay my debts and the residue (if any) to be given to my wife, I make constitute and appoint my sons Patrick and Samuel to be executors of this my last will and testament, hereby revoking all former wills. In witness wherof I have hereunto subscribed my name and affixed my seal this 5th. day.of February in the year of our Lord1864.
