Hi I have a will of Benjamin DENTON who died in 1848 in Marshall co MS. And L Kernodle signed the will as a Wittness. I assume that it was Levi Kernodle who is located on the 1850 Marshall Co MS Census on Page 362b. Do you know of any Dentons that are part of the Kernodle clan from Marshall Co., MS?

Last Will & Testament date 11 Nov 1843 on file Archive Box #559 Holly Springs, Marshall Co., MS Courthouse.

In the name of God, Amen. I Benjamin DENTON of the County of Marshall and State of Mississippi, do ordain this to be my last Will and Testament, revoking all others.
I first give and request into my wife Jane DENTON two negro slaves, Peter and Selah. Also my land where I now reside to be hers until her death. I also give my son, Shipman DENTON, one negro slave named Robert to be his immediately after my death. I also give Sarah Byrd and Nancy Byrd and Jefferson DENTON one dollar each.
I also constitute and appoint my son Shipman DENTON my whole executor to this my last Will and Testament. I also authorize my executor to sell all the balance of my property, including all that is willed to my wife, Jane DENTON, after her death and pay all my just debts and then divide the proceeds between himself, Rebeca HENSLEY, Isaac DENTON, Samuel DENTON, Pheby (Phebe) ROBERSON, Olnsey (Jinsey)RICHARDSON, Mary HOMES (HOLMES),Winsey HOMES (Wincey) HOLMES and Betty STONE. This being my last Will and Testament; given under my hand and seal this the 11th day of November in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and forty three.
