      Will Book 4, Page 405. April -0, 1807. Probated September 10, 1807.

      "I Nathaniel Owens of the County of Fauquier and Commonwealth of Virginia being convinced of the uncertainty of human life and approaching mortality do make and ordain this my last will and testament revoking all former wills by me made.
      First I give and bequeath my stepdaughter Elizabeth Marder Twenty pounds to be paid by my estate hereafter to be named to her heirs. Secondly it is my will and desire that whatever property both real and personal I am possessed of at my death shall be fairly sold by my executors to the highest bidders excepting my slaves which are to have the privilege of choosing their masters and to be sold by my executors fairly at private sale to such person or persons as said slaves may choose to serve at a fair price and after paying all just and legal claims against my estate and the legacy first mentioned that the residue be equally divided between the whole of my children and their heirs except my son Samuel's part which it is my will and desire shall be equally divided between my two grandsons Reuben and William Owens sons of my said so by the first marriage and their heirs.
      And lastly I do nominate and appoint my friend Joseph Blackwell, my two sons-in-law Allen Stewart and Thomas Pettit sole executors of this my will and testament. In Testimony whereof I have heretofore set my hand and affixed my seal this 9th(?) day of April 1807
      His
      Nathaniel X Owens

      Seal

      Signed sealed and delivered in the presence of Walter Alsop

      Note: There exists some uncertainty regarding the spelling in the Will of "Marder" as the document is smudged. However, an 1809 estate accout document indicates "1809 March 30 To Cash paid Eliza Marders Legacy 66.70"
