Moses Thomsons 1st wife was Grace Hoopes, dau. of Stephen Hoopes and Martha Evans; his 2nd wife was Veronica Nufer.] Be it remembered that I Moses Thomson of the Township of Marple in the County of Chester and Province of Pennsylvania, Yeoman, being sick and weak in body but of sound disposing mind and memory (blessed be Almighty God for the same and all other his mercies) and considering the certainty of death and the uncertainty of the time thereof, do make and put in writing this my last will and testament in manner and form following, that is to say, First my will is, that all my just debs and funeral expences be fully paid and satisfied. Item, I give and bequeath unto my beloved wife Veronica, one full equal third part of the rents issues and profits of all my lands tenements and hereditaments whatsoever and wheresoever, to hold to her my said wife Veronica for and during such time as she shall remain my widow and [?] she shall [?] again and no longer.

And as for and concerning the remainder residue of my personal estate (after payment of my just debts funeral expenses and other incidental charges) I do give and bequeath unto my said three daughters Martha, Mary and Grace and the child wherewith my said wife is now enscint to be equally divided between them part and share alike when they do respectively attain to the age of eighteen years. But if either of them my said children shall happen to die in their minority intestate and without [?] [?] that then and in that case, the share part portion and bequest of him or her so dying shall go to and descend unto the survivors of them my said children and the heirs and assigns of such survivors to be equally divided between them as tenants in common. And I do nominate and appoint my trusty friend Joseph Rhoads and Isaac Rhoads of the township of Marple Yeoman to be the executors of this my last will and testament and also trustees and guardians of the person of my said daughter Martha and her estate and of the estates of my other children hereby revoking all former and other wills and testaments heretofore by me made and do declare this only to be my last will and testament.
