I, Jackson Frazier, a Choctaw Indian by blood, and residing in Kiametia County, Choctaw Nation, being of full age and sound in mind and memory make this my last will and testament, hereby revoking any and all other wills that I have made heretofore. I give and devise and bequeath all of my estate both real and personal to my sister Mrs. Sina Gibson and her son James Frazier, both of whom are Indians and my nearest relations and reside in Kiametia County, Choctaw Nation. My sister Mrs. Sina Frazier is to have one half of all of my said estate and her son James Frazier is to have the other half.
I want my heirs, the above named parties after my death to pay all that I owe to every ___ that is all just and legal debts, and I here charge my said heirs and the executor of my said estate with the duty of first paying my debts, if any, and the balance both real and personal property to be equally divided between my said above named heirs.
I having full confidence in the integrity and honesty of Eugene Easton of Antlers, I. T., I do by these presents hereby appoint and constitute said Eugene Easton as my Executor to carry out the provisions of this will and I do not desire that he give any bond as my said Estate.
In Witness Whereof I have signed and sealed this instrument and published it as my last will and testament, at Antlers, I. T., this 13th day of July A. D. 1904.

John 3: 16 - 18:
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son (Jesus Christ), that
whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the
world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not
condemned; but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believeth in the name of
the only begotten Son of God.
