Negro woman Sarah had ran away and carried with her a child named David, therefore said negroes left out of the division. Widow allotted Voilett, one a legacy to George W. Powell, the balance of four devised by will of the deceased to be divided equally among nine of the deceased's grandchildren and his sone George W.
