      Parnel Hervey

      In the name of God Amen. I Parnel Hervey of New Braintree in the County of Worcester, widow, being of sound disposing mind and memory and realizing the uncertainty of life and the propriety of having my worldly affairs settled do make and ordain this my Last Will and Testament. Principally and first of all I commend my soul to God who gave it, hoping for Mercy through the merits[?] of my Redeemer. My body I commend to the Earth to receive a decent Christian burial and I dispose of the property with which God has blessed me in this life in the following manner to wit;

      In the first place I give and bequeath to my Daughters Martha Howland, Sally Tallman and Parnel Wetherell all my household furniture and clothing to be equally divided between them.

      Secondly, I give and bequeath to my Daughters Martha Howland and Parnel Wetherell one hundred dollars to each of them; and if my daughter Sally Tallman shall not be living at the time of my demise, her share of the farmhouse as above named, as to be equally divided between my two other daughters above named.

      Thirdly, I give and bequeath to my sons Charles M. Hervey, James K. Hervey, Calvin Hervey, Willard Hervey, Henry Hervey and Byram H. Hervey all the residue of my property both real and personal wherever it may be found to be equally divided between them after the above. L_____ my debts and incidental expenses are paid and a suitable piece of grave stone erected at my grave.

      Finally, I hereby constitute and appoint Samuel Mixter(?) Esquire of New Braintree, Executor of my last will and testament; hereby revoking all other and former wills by me made.

      In witness thereof, I have hereunto set my hand and seal this twenty fourth day of September in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and forty- six(?)

      Parnel Hervey [seal]

      Signed, sealed, published and declared by the said Parnel Hervey to be the last will and testament in presence of us who at her request in her presence and in the presence of each other hereunto fix our names as witnesses.

      Elijah C. Thrasher
      Clarissa H. Mixter
      Harriet Greene

      Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Worcester Co. At a Court of Probate holden at Barre on the eighteenth day of October A.D. 1850.
      The instrument here to annexed(?) having been presented for probate as the last will and testament of Parnel Hervey late of New Braintree in said County, deceased and it being mad to appear that due notice has been given to all persons interested, and no objections being made to the probate of the same and it being also made evident by the death of Clarissa H. Mixter, one of the witnesses hereto, that said instrument was legally executed, and that said testatrix was at the time of the execution of the same of full age and of sound mind. I now adjudge that said instrument is proved and decree that the same be approved and allowed as the last will and testament of said deceased.
