PERKINS, MARGARETT DAVIS, PETER PERKINS (deceased!) his widow Mary A. Perkins, CYNTHIA PERKINS and ELIZA JANE CROLEY. It is further my desire that my entire estate be sold at a private sale, provided the heirs can agree between themselves for that to be done, but in the case that can not be done agreeably, then for the Court to appoint an Administrator to settle and wind up the estate as soon as possible to do and after the court costs and other costs that would necessiarily arise are paid, the remainder to the respective heirs as I have here to fore said or directed. I make this will in full possession of my senses, knowing what I am saying and directing to be done. This March 14, 1892, 7:30 p.m.
