In the name of God, Amen
I, Adam Tanni, in that I do not know when the Lord will summon me from this world, so I have herewith composed my last will as to how my estate shall be handled after my death. When the bonds have fallen, one is to have as much as the other. Michael Danni, Fredrick Dan˙ and Sahra Hansin Christina Than˙ and Christina is to have the bed and the iron pot and when I have died, she is to have me buried; Fredrick and John are to have my clothes and my Sahra is to have my chest and if Christina holds on to the place, then she is to have the room stove and if she does not hold on to the place, then each is to have his share of it as the other and Sahra is to have my 2 pewter platters and my Lizabeth is to have the small chest and my Chatharine is to have the 2 iron pots and Christina is to have 10 yards of cloth in addition and the pewter plates Elizabeth is to have 3 and Chatherine 3 and Christine is to have 16 yards of cloth in addition. This is my last will I have composed in sound mind and signed & sealed in my own hand by the sign (seal) Fredrick County the 25th of June 1785

This is my last will and it is not to be brought before the wise father; they are to divide it among one another in peace and harmony and if anyone is not satisfied then he is to have nothing.
