- Will of David Baker directing as follows: sell such of the property as can be best spared and with the proceeds buy a trusty negro fellow, who is skilful in the management of a farm and repairing implements of husbandry. This bill was filed to get the advice of the court on the will. The widow, Catharine, re-married to the plaintiff, William S Armstrong. Moses Baker, the father of David, was appointed as executor and guardian of his children. The will directed that the whole estate, both real and personal, except what was necessary to pay the debts, should remain together as the joint stock of my beloved wife and children, and my farm should be continued under the management of my executor for their support and education, and that each one, if a son, receive his distributive share when he arrives at the age of 21 years, and if a daughter, when she arrives at the same age or marries, always reserving my house lot as a residence for my infant children and my beloved wife during her natural life or widowhood. It was held that the widow was entitled to an equal one-fifth share of the estate with the children.
