Surnames: CARPENTER, GREEN
In the name of God, Amen.
I, Timothy Carpenter of the Town of Harmony, County of Chautauqua, and state of New York, being of sound mind and memory, and considering the uncertainty of this frail and transitory life, do therefore make, ordain, publish and declare this to be my last will and testament, that is to say:
First---after all my lawful debts are paid and discharged, I give and bequeath to my wife Sally B. Carpenter during her natural life, the use of the part of my house that I live in now as described(to wit) consisting of the upright and the room west of it used by me now for a kitchen with a bedroom west and a butry south of the kitchen. It is my will for my wife to have the use of my farm and all my personal property if it should require so much for her support. After her death if she should survive me, it is to be equally divided between my three children, providing my son William P. Carpenter pays a note that we gave together to ?????. If he fails to pay it, it must come from his portion with annual interest. It is further my will that Samuel Green shall manage the property, have full power to let the farm and to manage the personal property as a prudent farmer should and to let my wife have as much of the proceeds as is necessary for her support. Likewise I make, constitute and appoint Samuel J. Green of Harmony Chautauqua County and State of New York to be executor of this my last will and testament, hereby revoking all former wills by me made.
In witness whereof, I have hereunto subscribed my name and affixed my seal the Twenty-fifth day of March, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and seventy eight.
The above written instrument was subscribed by the said Timothy Carpenter in our presence, and acknowledged by him to each of us: and he at the same time declared the above instrument, so subscribed to be his last Will and Testament: and we, at his request, have signed our names as witnesses hereto, in his presence and in the presence of each other, and written opposite our names our respective places of residence.

The McCormick Company purchasedhis patent. He also invented a type-setting machine and a votingmachine. Just prior to his death, he was engaged in selling thevoting machine to the State of Missouri. He claimed the machine wasinfallible and could be purchased for $50 each instead of the $500per machine the State was then paying. Some records indicate STEPHENwas a Wisconsin State Senator, but this is an error. The StateArchivist reports his only connection with state government was atwo-year printing contract which was financially disastrous toSTEPHEN. He is reported to have received a gold watch from the STATEfor exposing irregularities in the awarding of printing contracts.His second spouse MARY is listed in the 1860 census (3rd ward,Madison, Wisc.) as age 36 and born in Vermont (Vol. 1, p. 260,census).
