Solomon Beesley left a will on 13 November 1789 at Craven Co., North Carolina, USA; The Will of Solomon Beesley (The Given name of Solomon is spelled with an "o" the first time it is written in his Will; however the first time the surname is written, it is written as B E E S L E Y/ekh) was written November13, 1789 in Craven County, North Carolina, was located in the NC State Archives, Raleigh, N.C., a copy of which was made and transcribed below by eloise k. howard.

This Will has some very dark and very light areas which will result in sketchy transcription; but in the hopes that a little confirmed information is better than none for family researchers, I have transcribed Solomon Beesley's Will of 1789 as follows:
