The above will is from Orange County Original Wills - Volume III, page 6

Note:  The reader will note that the copyist failed to capitalize GOD, used very little punctuation and spelling words according to the way they sounded.  This will was copied exactly as written from the original (photostat.)  

George Loy signed his own will (almost illegible).  The two men Michael Holt and John Loy also signed their names.  Marriage records in NC show some of the Albrights, Sharps, and Hots marrying two generations of Loy.  Groups of Loys and Mosiers, Holts, Sharps, etc., moved together from NC to Ala. according to records where their names are mentioned in both states.
