Will of Mrs. F. E. GRUMBLEY
I Fannie E. GRUMBLEY of Elkton Kentucky, do make and or-
dain this to be my last will and testament.
1st Recognizing my individual responsibility to God and trust
ing that I may realize the promises made to those who remain
faithful to the end-- I recommend my soul to Him.
2nd I will and bequeath all of my property real and personal to
my daughter Lura J. Hancock to be held, used and enjoyed as her
separate estate free from the claims of her husband or any future hus
band she may have or their creditors.  I make the foregoing be-
quest to my said daughter not that I desire to discriminate between
my children but because she has remained with me and aided me
in making a support for many years--as well as having assisted
me in paying for the property I now own.  I have faith and con-
fidence in my said daughter if she should die childless in dis-
posing of her property acquired through me and otherwise to
dispose of the same to those of my decendants then surviving
in such proportions as she deems best.
