To the Hon. J. J. Harrison, Chief Justice of Collin County.

The undersigned having been appointed commissioners at the last term of your Hon. Court to make partition and distribution of the estate of JOHN H. COLLINS, decd. late of said County would beg leave to report that in accordance with your order they proceeded to make a careful examination and valuation of the estate both real and personal of said COLLINS decd. after which we proceeded to partition and distribution as follows –

Tract 1st contains 197 acres and is bounded as follows, Beginning at the NW corner of a 155 acres survey in the name of said COLLINS (?), Thence East 19.50 chains a post on the NW line thereof, Thence South 81.14 chains a post in the prairie, Thence West 29.22 chains a post the SW corner of an 81 acre tract owned by (?), Thence North 40.02 chains the NE corner of the aforesaid 81 acres, Thence East 9.72 chains the SW corner of the aforesaid 155 acres, Thence North 41.14 chains to the place of beginning.

The remaining 279 ½ acres of land which we have set apart to the Heirs of the said JOHN COLLINS is in our opinions…

 

Page 101

 

Not susceptible of a division without material injury to the said Heirs.

The remaining half of the personal property amounting to $337.56, we also find it impracticable to divide and would recommend a sale of the same. The annexed best (?) gives a correct exhibit of the personal property set apart to said heirs:

In the Name of God, Amen:

I, HENRY HART of the State of Texas and County of Collin being sick and weak of body but of sound mind memory and understanding and considering the certainty of death and the uncertainty of the time thereof and to the end that I may be the better prepared to leave this world whenever it shall please God to call me hence, do therefore make and declare this my last will and testament in manner following that is to say: It is my will that all my just debts and charges of my funeral be paid and discharged by my executor hereinafter named and appointed out of my estate as soon as conviently (conveniently) may be after my decease and I leave the charges of my funeral to the direction of my said executor.

It is my will that my executor as soon as he conveniently can shall sell on such terms as he may think best and most to the interest of my estate and effects whatsoever and wheresoever and of what nature and kindsoever which at the time of my decease I or any person or person in trust for me am or are possessed of or entitled to.

I give and bequeath to my four grandchildren to wit, ELIZABETH A., JAS. K. P., MARTHA and HENRY F. HART, children of my son ADAM HART decd. one hundred and sixty dollars ($160) to be among them equally divided.

I give and bequeath to my daughter PRISCILLA wife of HORACE WYATT the like sum of one hundred and sixty dollars ($160). I give and bequeath to my son B. Y. HART the like sum of one hundred and sixty dollars ($160) all of which legacies shall be paid to the respective legatees out of the funds arising from the sale of my estate and effects as herein before provided for next after the payment of all my just debts and funeral charges. Provided however that if there should be not enough of said funds then said legacies shall be paid out of any and all funds of my estate whatsoever. After payment of said legacies all the monies and funds whatsoever remaining in the hand of my executor belonging to my estate shall be divided equally among my six children to wit, ADAM HART, B. Y. HART, ALFRED HART, SAMUEL HART and SAMPSON HART. For the satisfaction of my dear sons SAMUEL and SAMPSON HART, I state herein in this my last will that the reason I have given my four other children the above legacies of one hundred and sixty ($160) is that according to agreement between them and myself they are indebted to me to the amount of four hundred and eighty dollars…

($480) each for three years cash of their minority which I feel just to my four children to secure to them in this manner.
