The last will and testament of Henry Cotton.

We have already examined the wills of Henry Cotton and his wife Temperance Moore Cotton as transcribed in Wilson County will books. Now, however, we see a copy of Henry Cotton’s original will, drafted on post office letterhead by Samuel H. Vick (who was in between stints as postmaster) and witnessed by mail carrier John H. Clark.
