Will of Alexander Kinchen, deceased

In the name of God, Amen. I, Alexander Kinchen of the county of Chatham and state of North Carolina, being low in health, though of sound mind and being strongly impressed with the mortality of the human frame, do make and ordain this my will and testament. First, I am perfectly content with the law of the state as to what property I may leave, that is to say, that my loving wife Elizabeth, and my dear little son William Poe should occupy and enjoy it. But as I have sold the land I received by my said wife, and further as I have lately sold the house and lot whereon I new live, and thus not possessing either house or houses, and as my said wife and child will shortly, that is to say, on the twenty-fifth day of December next, be without a house, it being the day on which my agreement that the said premises are to be given up, and as there will be a necessity for some provision to be made in this respect, therefore my will and desire is that my Executors hereinafter named be empowered at their pleasure and by their judgment, to purchase a piece of land with comfortable buildings, or otherwise to build them one or to purchase a house and lot that may appear most expedient and property, so that my said wife and child may be supplied with an abiding place. And further, that my said Executors may sell again or swap or purchase further as to them may seem most property for the convenience and advantage of my said wife and child. Further my wish is that my old Negro slave Sarah, my bay horse and my stock of saddlery and saddler’s tools, be sold on such credit or in such way as my said Executors may deem most advisable, or that said slave be hired out at the discretion of my said Executors. And that nothing else be sold except my Executors should find it necessary or expedient. Also my desire is (as must and ought to be the case) that all my just depts. Be paid as soon as the situation of my affairs will permit, and for this purchase as well as others, I desire that the debts due me may be collected as soon as may be consistent with the ordinary inconvenience to my debtors. Again as respects my Negro salve Harry, I presume the best plan will be to keep him at his trade, but in this I give full latitude to my Executors, either to hire him out or purchase a set of smith tools, furnish shop, etc., and set him to work, and if they please, let my Negro slave Jo, with him as a striker, or to do otherwise as they may deem best. Finally, respecting my Executors, I wish no restraints put upon them, but the following, but allow them to bargain, buy and sell at their pleasure with this single restraint, that they have an eye simply to the benefit of my dear wife and child. And further that the property remain in the possession of and under the direction of my said Executors until my said wife shall again marry or until my said son shall come of age, which will be should he live, on the fourteenth day of September the year of our Lord and twenty-five. On the event of either, my will is that the property of every description shall be fairly divided between them, share and share alike. And lastly, I do hereby appoint my dear and loving wife, Executrix, and my trusty friend, Rhoderick Cotten (Cathen), William Dismukes and Winship Stedman, Executors to this my last will and testament. I hope that they will do me the favor to comply with this my last important request. In testimony of all which I have hereunto set my hand and affixed my seal at Pittsborough in the state aforesaid, this 21st day of June 1806

In the name of God, Amen. I, Robert Poe of Chatham County, and state of North Carolina, knowing the mortality of my body, and calling to mind that it is appointed for all mankind to die, and being in my sound mind and memory. First of all, I recommend my soul to Almighty God that gave it, and for my body to have a decent burial. First, I give unto my beloved wife, Anna Poe, two feather beds and furniture, and all my household and kitchen furniture, and also one hundred acres of land whereon  now live, during her lifetime; also all my stock of every kind, I give unto my wife during her lifetime. Also I give unto my beloved wife, all my working tools. My will further is that my wife pay all my just debts. My will further is that my beloved wife dispose of all the property that I have left her, just as she shall think proper, and for her to have it in her power to make a good right to all the above left property or any part thereof. Lastly, I constitute my beloved friend, my lawful Executors, namely, Mark Bynum and Anna Poe, my Executrix, revoking all other will or wills by me made, do make and ordain this to be my last will and testament in manner and form above written. In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and seal this 8th day of January 1811.

* The Womble name appears in many records I have not recorded here, since I have found no actual Poe connection. (one vague reference to a Womble “uncle by marriage” in the Jesse Poe reunion article has shown up).

 

---- a miscellaneous aside. The name Hasten Poe appears in two seemingly distinct branches of the Poe family, here in North Carolina (Hasten Poe, son of Stephen Poe) and the Poe family out of Amelia / Prince Edward County, Virginia. Hasten Poe there went to Franklin County, Kentucky. A record from Chatham County dated 1824 mentions a Hasten Green. It is just that that this is the only other person I have found with the name Hasten who was not a Poe. Does anyone know the origin of the name Hasten - is it pronounced as in the word hasten "to urge on" or is it pronounced HasTen?)

(if this Ward family is the same as that found in Amelia / Prince Edward County, Virginia, it may show a link between the Poe family found there and the Poe family from Caroline County that came to Orange/Chatham County, North Carolina. Did the two Poe families re-connect in North Carolina? No direct link between the two Poe families has been found. Note that a descendant of the Amelia/ PEC Poe family is named Hasten Poe. That Hasten Poe went to Kentucky. Another Hasten Poe appears below, connected to the Ward family.)
