Wife-to have my mulatto wench called Hannah, during her natural life.
Son George-negro boy Billy, son of Hannah.
Son Samuel Peachy-negro boy Plato, son of Norah.
Wife-my land called Hobsons during her natural life, and at her death to be sold for the equal benefit of the children of hers and mine then surviving.
Rest of my negroes to be equally divided among my wife, and my sons George, and Samuel, and the child my wife now goes with, and the part allotted to my wife, at her death be equally divided among my said children, and if either of the sid children should die before the age of twenty one, their part to be equally divided among the survivors.
Part of my stock and furniture as may be deemed necessary, be kept together for use of wife and children, and the rest be sold and the money therefrom together with the crop and saltary on hand or due me, and the debts due me, be equally divided among my wife and children.
As there is a marriage contract between my wife and me, and I am under some apprehension that my son George may take all the negroes mentioned. If son George insists on the benefit of the said contract, he is then to have no other part of my estate, but that it be divided between the other two children, having due regard to my wife as before directed.
Friends William and Leroy Peachey, executors, and friends Col. Presly Thornton, Doctor Nicholas Flood, Mr. Thomas Jones, and Mr. Rodham Kenner, will join my executors in the guardianship or care of my children.

BRITISH MERCANTILE CLAIMS 1775 - 1803
Claims of Geo: McCall & Company (pp. 29-31):
Robert Coleman Senr., Culpeper . £8.14.4-1/2 by note. He died intestate in Culpeper County about
1793. His administrator is Philip Clayton, now of the same county. He knows nothing of any British claims except the share he was bound to pay James Harford as a partner in the firm of Philip Clayton & Company, nor are there any papers left by him that will throw light on the subject. At the peace and some time before Rt. Coleman possessed but very little property, not more than one slave besides a tract of land. He was far advanced in age and had for many years before broken up house keeping and lived alternately with his children. Although he did not possess much property he was generally considered an honest man and would have been reputed solvent. Long after his British debts were contracted he gave property to his children to an amount vastly more than sufficient to pay all his debts. John Yancy who married his daughter and who removed to Rockingham County about 1790 has some slaves in his possession formerly belonging to Robt. Coleman Senr., in consequence of which he is bound to pay some of his British debts. It is probable the old man imposed this obligation upon him at the time of the gift.
Since the peace it is extremely doubtful whether the amount of thie claims now existing against him could have been satisfied without selling his land, which the laws of our state would not compel
