    • Melba Gene McLemore found a June, 1839 Supreme Court of North Carolina case relating to Mungo T. Ponton, Ex'r of Joel H. McLemroe vs. Elizabeth McLemore, et al.

      Joel H.

AVENT, viz; Austin, senior, Cynthia, Emannel, Daniel and Chaney, with an equal share of the proceeds of the sale of property, which I shall empower my executors to sell, with the exception of five hundred dollars, to be taken out of the part of my daughter, of the the money that may remain, after paying my just debts; the balance of my negroes, I wish to be equally divided among my wife and her child James Henry, and the one with which she is now pregnant. It is my wihd and desire that should I die shortly, that my executors sell the lots and houses I own in the town of Halifax, upon such credits as may seem to them best calculated to enhance the value of the property, together with all household and kitchen furnitre; and, at the end of the year, I wish them to sell my land, lying below the town of Halifax, and all my stock, crop and plantation utensils; the manner of selling, I leave to my extecutors; and, after the payments of my debts, the surplus, if any, I wish to be equally divided between my wife Elizabeth and her children; and the part which I design for my daughter, with the exception of five hundred dollars aforesaid, to my friend Henry Doggett, as aforesaid, in trust for the support and maintenance of my daughter, Mary E. AVENT---The property I hereby leave in trust, for the benefit of my daughter, Mary E. AVENT, is to be applied at the discretion of the trustee, for the support and maintenance of Mary E. AVENT, and her children, and no part or parcel thereof to be subject to the debts of her husband. " This bill was filed by the executor, stating the death of the husband of the testator's daughter, Mar E. AVENT, and the refusal of the trustee to act, and asking the advice of the court as to the proper construction of the will
