See Estelle's family record.

          I, Estelle Laws McKay, now residing at Nineveh, Warren County, Virginia, being of sound mind, make this my last will and testament revoking any former wills.

          One: I give and bequeath to my husband, Hubert F. McKay, the sum of $3,000.

          Two: All the balance of my estate, real, personal or mixed, wherever located, I give, bequeath and devise to my sister Alice Laws Moore, to be hers absolutely. If my sister should predecease me, then I give, bequeath and devise all the balance of my estate to my sister's children, namely Adair Moore, Douglas Moore, and Erle D. Moore, share and share alike. Included in the bequest to my sister is an interest that I may inherit from my mother's estate and any compensation that I am to recieve from the estate of George E. Morgan.

          It is my desire that my sister give to certain friends certain items of remembrance which I have discussed with her, and to whom I have delivered a list.

          Three: I appoint my sister, Alice Laws Moore, as executrix of my estate, and request that she be permitted to qualify without surety on her bond. In the event my sister predeceases me, then I appoint my nephew, Adair Moore, and Ralph Ware, as Executors of this will.

          Given under my hand and seal this 11th day of August, 1947
