Weakley Wills Cumberland Co PA 1750-1825

Here are copies of some abstracts of wills that I found in my library. They are all from Cumberland County, PA. Some of them are my direct ancestors, such as James and Rebecca and their son Isaac. Others are their aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, friends, in-laws, out-laws, etc. I'm still trying to sort it all out. These are abstracts and mention mostly just names and relationships. The actual wills would have a lot more info, I would assume. I don't yet know how to go about getting copies of the actual wills. I think that numbers in the bottom right of each will have something to do with where to get them, but I'm not sure what they mean. Each will is separated by a ==== line.
