In Reply to: moses moore by rodney bowers of 534

This is the will and some probate of William Moore who married Jane Floyd, daughter of William Floyd, my ancestor.
I WONDER if Machisn or Machesna could have used Moses instead of their given name. I have no basis for this. I just didn't find a child named Moses. Since I am not a Moore descendant (but a Floyd), I can't say. I do have Perry Co. ancestors - Brittain/Britton; Oakes; Martin. Also Muckleroy/McLeroy cousins.

Pages 212-213 - I William Moore do make and publish this as my last Will and Testament hereby revoking and making void all other wills by me at any time made. First I give and bequeath unto my son James H ["M" in other docs] Moore the property and monies which I have heretofore given him and which he has had in possession and used Secondly. I give & bequeath unto my son Alexander Moore the properties and monies which I have heretofore given him and which he has had in possession & use Thirdly. I give and bequeath unto my son John H Moore one bay filley known as his filley beside the property and monies which I have heretofore given him and which he has had in possession and used. Fourthly I give and bequeath unto my son William L Moore one bay horse colt known as his colt besides the property which I have heretofore given him and which he has had in possession Fifthly. I give and bequeath unto my son Henderson Moore one hundred and fifty dollars to be paid over to him at the death of my wife Jane Moore besides the property which I have heretofore given him and which he has had in possession. Sixthly I give and bequeath unto my beloved wife Jane Moore during her natural life for her comfortable support and maintainance & for the support and maintainance of Daughter Lutetia Moore my son William L Moore my Daughter Mary Ellen Moore my son Machisn Moore and my Daughter Louisa Jane Moore so long as they or either of them shall remain with her my said Wife the following property (to wit) the plantation or tract of land whereon I now live containing one hundred acres together with all the ballance of my estate both real and personal except so much as I may have in a preceeding clause or clauses of this my Will given to my sons Seventhly It is my will and desire & do direct that at the death of decease or death of my said Wife Jane Moore that all my Estate both real and personal which I have in a proceeding clause of this my Will given or loaned to my said Wife during her natural life here equally divided between my daughters Lutetia Moore my son William L Moore my daughter Mary Ellen Moore my son Machesna Moore & my daughter Louisa Jane Moore Lastly I do hereby nominate & appoint my sons Alexander Moore and John H Moore my Executors.
