4 June 1824 – July Term 1827 Elizabeth Dail

Cosin Mornening daugh of sister Polly Dail, 3 heads of cattle, 1 feather bed and furniture, all of my money and notes and all the rest of the property excepting my wearing clothes and them to be divided between my mother and cosin Morning Dail and my sister Susie Grady and Ann Dail

Ext Richard Kethly, Daniel Dail – they were also the WIT

According to James Hardison – he thinks she was the widow of Isaac Dail. In her will she mentioned a niece, Mourning Dail, who was the daughter of her sister Polly Dail. We know that the elderly Able Dail's wife was named Mary from some Pitt County land records. Evidently Abel and Isaac married sisters.

I am not sure I agree with this. I am more inclined to think the Polly was Polly Hardison. Susie may have been the wife of Thomas Graddy.
