    Transcription:
    Testament of Azariah Bailey

    State of Georgia In the name of Almighty God,
    Newton County Amen

    I, AZARIAH BAILEY, being low in health, but of sound disposing mind and memory, do
    make, declare and publish this my last Will & Testament.

    FIRST, I commend my feeble body to the dust whence it came and my soul to the hands
    of my Creator.

    In making a disposition of such worldly effects as I have, it is my will and desire FIRST.
    The tract of land upon which I now reside, being part of those lots I give JOSHUA BAILEY,
    JOSEPH BAILEY and EPHRIAM HEARD and to their heirs to be divided or sold as a majority of
    them may deem proper.

    SECOND, the lot of land I hold in the County of Henry Number / 122 / one hundred &
    twenty-two and the Sixth District, I give to the legal representatives of WILLIAM BAILEY,
    deceased, and to the legal representatives of CALEB BAILEY, deceased, to be equally divided
    by my executors hereinafter named.

    THIRD, I give to BENJAMIN H. BAILEY and his heirs the tract or half of lot of land
    whereon WILLIAM HUBBARD now resides.

    FOURTH, I give to my son JOSHUA BAILEY and his heirs the following Negroes, to-wit:
    Little Anthony, Eady, Stephen, Peter, and Celia, and their issue.

    FIFTH, I give to my son JOSEPH BAILEY four hundred dollars in consideration of his
    having relinquished his claim to a certain Negro named Big Anthony which said sum of four
    hundred dollars is to be paid by my after named executors as soon as they conveniently can. I
    hold some notes made by Thomas Fields and Joseph Howard which I wish to be disposed of
    as follows: First I wish all my just debts / if any / immediately paid. To my grandson, JESSE H.
    BAILEY, the sum of one hundred & thirty dollars when he arrives at the age of twenty one years
    which is to remain in the hands of BENJAMIN H. BAILEY on his making the same secure to the
    said JESSE H. BAILEY when due, which is not to bear interest while in such safe keeping. I give
    to my grandchildren, JESSE, WILLIAM, AZARIAH, ELIZABETH and JOHN BAILEY, children of my
    son, CALEB BAILEY, deceased, the sum of one hundred dollars to be in the hands of my son,
    JOSHUA. The balance of the above named notes, if any, together with the residue of my
    personal property I wish to be divided into six equal shares and amongst the legal heirs of
    WILLIAM BAILEY, deceased; EPHRIAM HEARD; JOSHUA BAILEY; the legal heirs of CALEB
    BAILEY, deceased; JOSEPH BAILEY; and BENJAMIN H. BAILEY.

    Having paid to my son, JOSEPH, the most of the four hundred dollars in this will
    specified for the Negro, Big Anthony, I wish my after named executors to come to settlement with
    said son, JOSEPH, and pay the balance of the said four hundred dollars to him.

    I hereby nominate and appoint my sons, JOSHUA BAILEY and BENJAMIN H. BAILEY,
    executors to this my last Will & Testament hereby revoking & canceling all other & former Wills
    by me made.

    In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and seal the 19th day of October, 1831.

    Signed, sealed, acknowledged &
