318 Whereas James Jones the Elder late of this county, deceased, did by his
will made April 6, 1717, amongst other things in his said will made
and devised in there words "All the rest and residue of my personal
estate, goods and chattels whatsoever, I do give and bequeath to my
loveing son James Jones, full and sole executor of this my last will
and testament"
Since the law calls Negro, Mulatto, and Indian Slaves real estate.,
it may be a doubt whether any of the slaves pass to James Jones by this
bequest.
Gilbert Hay, aged 63 years, deposed as follows; that he wrote the will
and that James Jones wanted the will written to his son's best advantage,
that all the slaves given in former wills to others (except to grand-
child Jane Cook) should go to son James JonesJune 9, 1719
Edward Prince age 39 years, deposes that he was witness to said will
and heard the same as Gilbert Hay.June 9, 1719
