In the name of God Amen
I, Rudolph Vroman of the town of Lee in the County of Oneida & State of New York, being of sound mind and memory and considering the uncertainity of this frail transitory life, do therefore make, ordain, publish and declare this to be my last will testament; that is to say,
FIRST, after all my lawful debts are paid and discharged I give and bequeath to my brother Abraham such a sum of money as will pay his necessary expenses, one half of the time during his life.
SECOND, I give and bequeath to my son Franklin Vroman the sum of six hundred (600) dollars.
THIRD, I give and bequeath the rest and residue of my real and personal estate after my funeral expense and the cost of suitable tombstones at my grave are paid, to my sons, Jacob Vroman, John Vroman, William Vroman, Rudolph Vroman, Chauncy Vroman and Franklin Vroman, and to my daughter, Maria, wife of Christian P. Bork, and to my grandson William H. Vroman, share and share alike, in which said sums of money I direct my executor hereinafter named to pay to the respective legatees, within one year after my decease, except my brother Abraham's share which I direct to be paid annually during his life.
Likewise, I make, constitute and appoint my son John Vroman of the town of Rome in the County of Oneida, State of New York to be executor of this my last Will & Testament, hereby revoking all former wills by me made.
In witness whereof I have hereunto subscribed my name and affixed my seal the 21st day of June in the Year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and seventy one. Rudolph Vroman (L. S.)
