 Frederick  Houck’s     Will  4431
West Chester PA

      I do order that my beloved wife Sarah Houck, 
upon my death, shall receive one of the beds in the house. 
Also the following: 

One cow of her choice 
Two hives of bees 
One large hog 
One table and two chairs 
Such kitchen furniture as she may choose and have need for. 
      
All the rest of my personal Estate, which does not belong 
to my beloved daughter, be sold to defray my debt. 

      To my daughter Catherine Houck, all my place in Coventry Twp 
where we now live, with all the appurtenances thereunto, 
which includes 47 acres. My daughter Catherine is to pay 
175 Pounds for the property, and the Executers shall make 
and Execute a good deed. 

      I do order that my beloved wife Sarah Houck is to live 
on the land of my daughter Catherine Houck, and have equal shares 
of the income during her natural life. After her death, it shall 
be given to my daughter Catherine Houck. 

      I do order in my WILL that my daughter Elizabeth, 
(married to John Miller), and my Grandson, Thomas Watts, 
each one of them shall have out of the money my daughter 
Catherine Houck has to pay for the property, 10 pounds each. 
This money shall not be paid till one year after my wife 
Sarah Houck has died. 

      I do order that my son Frederick Houck and my daughter Mary, 
who was married to William Watts, each and every one shall receive 
of my Executors the sum of Seventy Shillings which shall be deemed 
their full share of my Estate. 

      I do order that any money from the sale of my personal and 
real estate I allowed my daughter Catherine Houck for the care 
of my wife Sarah Houck. 

      I do order that the Bond which I had given to my daughter 
Catherine Houck in the amount of 110 pounds shall be considered 
a full satisfaction for her trouble during the time stayed 
with me over her age and for some Honey she delivered to me. 
Lastly I do nominate and constitute and appoint my beloved 
friends, Henry Christman & John Titlow, to be my Executors 
to this last Will & Testament on the 6th day of December, 1794. 



(Will filed March 20, 1795. Chester Co., Wills  #4431) 

(Elizabeth probably died between the making of her Father's 
will in 1794 and the settlement of the estate in February 1798 
as no payments are recorded as being paid to her, but a payment 
was made to John Miller. Couple probably childless. 
Mary's husband William Watts was deceased at time of her Father's death.)
