L. Warrant for survey of Grant 801.
First I do order and direct that my loving wife Grizey Moore do hold and remain in possession of my homestead plantation with all the buildings and improvements thereon together with as much land contiguous and convenient as to make one full third part of my real estate and also one third part of my Personal Estate agreeable to the laws of the State of North Carolina; in, such behalf made and provided.
The plantation which now is and is to remain in possession of my brother Charles Moore for and during his natural life is to be considered as an allotment for my youngest surviving child and the land to be bounded and extended agreeable to the directions ordered to be observed as to the settlements made by my sons Robert and Phillips—The value of improvement[s] is not to be rated in the estimation of the value of the land, but damages if any, is to be taken into a reasonable estimation; this is directed in consideration of the uncertainty of the time when it may revert to their use, my brother having a life lease with even date of this Will.
