Beginning at the run of Beaverdam Swamp runs near a north corner to a post oak below the mouth of William Newman's branch, thence to the corner formerly Byrds, now Gabriel Holmes, thence to the pine in the Beaverdam Swamp, thence to the beginning. And a colt and the cattle that is now called Reddick's, and a bed and furniture.

      I also give to my beloved son Gabriel Butler the tract of land where he now lives. Beginning in the fork of Newman's Mill Swamp below the Coharie Swamp to the mouth of the long branch and with the same to the head, thence a straight line by the flax hole and gum pond to my back line and down and down the same to Boykin's Branch to the corner, thence a strait course to the head of the Spring Branch, and down the same to the beginning.
