In 1831, 47-year-old Lucinda Nims (1784-1857) inherited her father's estate "so long as she shall remain unmarried." At a point between this date and the death of her mother in 1843, Lucinda drew up this document to divide the estate among her chosen heirs: her mother, her brothers and her sisters' children. Lucinda Nims outlived her two brothers and her mother. Edwin's daughter, Eunice Kimberley Nims (1845-1917), who married Rufus Franklin Brown (1842-1903), became the next owner.
