    I, Samuel Miller of Middletown, in the County of Hartford, do make this my last will and testament: I give unto Marcy my wife the use of 1-3 part of my buildings and of my improved land during the time she shall remain my widow; 1-3 part of my household goods and stock to be at her dispose forever. I give to my son Samuel my buildings and homelott and all my lands at Pegowset. I give to my son Nathan all that piece of land I bought of Mr. Woodbridge, and my will is that what my son Nathan wants to be equal with my son Samuel shall be made to him in out-land. And then all the remainder of my land, divided and undivided, and my interest in Hop Swamp Stream, and all my carpentry tools and husbandry tools, shall be equally divided between my two sons, only it is to be understood that I give my son Samuel all my buildings more than to equal him with my son Nathan. In consideration whereof my will is that my son Samuel shall pay all my just debts and funeral charges. And my will is that my two sons shall equally pay to my two daughters, Esther and Sibell, as their full portion of my estate, to each the sum of £40 in or as money. I appoint my son Samuel sole executor.
