After the death of my sister Isabella McEver, I give devise and bequeath to my nephew in law Nathan Lipscomb and his wife Laura Lipscomb (who is my niece) and their children all that part of the aforesaid property which may be in possession of my sister Isabella McEver at the time of her death. I hereby nominate and appoint Dr. Robert I. Battle the executor of this my last will and testament and hereby authorize and empower him to compound, compromise and settle any claim or demands which may be against or in favor of my said estate.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this 16th of January 1891.
