To wife Esther all my land where I now live during her widowhood and then to my son Savage Broadwater. My interest in the land where James Warrington now lives to be sold for the payment of my debts. Brother John Broadwater executor. Witnesses were Elias Broadwater and Martha Pitt (Acc Co Wills, 1788-94, p. 361).

It was the northeast quarter. This William (wife Esther) left the home part to his son Savage Broadwater, and directed that the part where James Warrington lived was to be sold. A survey the next year produced 148 acres, of which Savage received 100 acres, and the 48 acres at the east end were sold to Custis Jenkinson (Witelaw, p. 1292).
