Contributors note:

This will also mentions his grandchildren: John, Margret, Samuel, James, "un-named infant"; who are the children of James Sturgeon and Margret McNair, his wife. It appears that David, the son of John McNair, is deceased. David's children are: John, Margret, David, Phiby. Another son of John McNair, by the name of Robert, needs "lifetime support" and provisions for this, are made in the will. John McNair's daughter, Christian (perhaps mispelled Christina) is married to Charles Edwin Clyton. His other daughter, Margret, is married to James Sturgeon. John McNair's son, James NcNair is married to Rebecca Clyton.
