AKIN NOTES

Contact Janell McCann

Other researchers and I of this descendancy have been "stuck" on our Phillips,

McCanns, Garrisons, Lingo's, Martin's, Reeds, Gammells, Binghams and other

lateral lines who passed through Hardin Co., TN.  Any help will be appreciated,

as we are having to work with burned out counties, early deaths in AR of our

kin and little other information to go on.

GAMMELL NOTES

Now that Gwen has learned her BEDWELL/GAMMILL families were in early Bedford, then Marshall Counties, TN then to Hardin Co., TN in 1840's we may look more closely at the Phillips and Garrisons in those counties. Maybe these folks had migrated from a common place to this area? There are very few records for Bedford. I do not have the deed index for Hardin Co. JM)

DEED INDEX - BEDFORD CO., TN

(Several pages are much too dim to read. I have ordered deeds from this county and they would probably be willing to send you copies of the B's or ask them to send a list of Bedwells, etc. for period up to about 1825, unless you plan to use the LDS film. The county clerk in Bedford was very helpful to me. JM)

WILL OF AMZI REED

1876/7/17

In the Name of God Amen, I Amzi REED of the County of Hardin and State of Tennessee

Knowing the uncertainty of life and the certainty of death as well as that I am getting old and inform. But being of a sound and disposing memory and wishing to dispose of my worldly effects while living I do hereby make and publish this my last Will & Testament hereby revoking and making void all other wills heretofore made by me.

1st I give my soul to that God who gave it.

2nd I give to my beloved Edny REED the use and occupation of my dwelling house, out houses, lots, stables and the other inclosures attached thereto during her life with a sufficient amount of the remts and proceeds of the lands to support her in a comfortable manner during her natural life.

I wish my executor to sell all of my personal property of any deascription except the household and kitchen furniture that may be necessary for the use of my wife during her life which she may dispose of as she pleases at her death and out of my personal property and the debts due me when collected my executor will pay all of my just debts then I give to my grandson John REED, youngest heir of my son David REED five hundred dollars out of said fund and the balance I give to the heirs of my son David REED dec'd share and share alike including John REED the youngest heir for I wish him to have full share with the balance of the heirs beside the five hundred dollars already mentioned and to be paid to them as they arrive at lawful age.

I give to my daughter Jane Nesbet the one half of my real estate for and during her natural life and at her death to go to the heirs of the said David REED dec'd to be divided among them equally.

I give the other half of my real estate to the heirs of said David REED dec'd to be equally divided among them icluding John REED the youngest.

After my wife shall have been amply shall have been amply provided with a years support out of the rents of said lands in each and every year should then be any left I want the same equally divided by my executor between the said Jane Nesbit and the heirs of the said David REED dec'd in accordance with their interests in said real estate.

I do hereby nominate and appoint my grandson J. Lewis REED my executor of this my last will and testament with full power and authority to carry out the provisions of this will He renting the land, collecting the rents and applyin g that portion of the sum to the support and maintenance of his grandmother, my wife, during her life as well as dividing the balance of said rents as has been indicated in item 6 of this will.

In a short time after the death of my wife the said Edny REED I wish my said executor with 2 desent and upright men to make an equal division of said real estate between the said Jane Nesbit and the heirs of the said David REED deceased, doing each justice in said divisio. My executor having full powers to select said two honest and ecsent ment to aid him in making said division of said real estate. I do this to save the expense of a court in the matter.

In testimony whereof I have herewith set my hand and seal this the 17th day of July 1876. s/Amazi REED, Wit: J. A. Dodds & W. T. Powers. Hardin Co., TN Wills, Vol. 2, pg 98-100
