In the name of God amen, I Rosannah McClarney being poorly in body but in sound mind and memory do make and ordain this to be my last will and testament in manner and form as followeth ~

First I command my body to the dust to be buried in a decent manner and that the Executor of the same be desently satisfied for the same and after my last debt is paid I desire that my wearing close be equally divided between Caty Ford (?), Elizabeth Holloway, Caty Fordís (?) four children, that is the four children have one third of the close (clothes).
