William Dickson/Dixon PICKETT is an older brother of a slaveholder of my ancestor, Milton HOWARD/SMITH and his family named Albert James Pickett. Juliet was enslaved by William D Pickett.

...I give to my negro woman Juliet twenty (say 20) Dollars a
year during her life which is to come out of the annual
interest of my daughter’s estate and which I request To be
paid her and I would wish her to be kept in the
family if she should wish it...It my desire I wish I wish Juliet to have 1 Bedsted

first clause in my will respecting the disposition
of my property to my daughter that whether

I hereby intend to be gracious? and all to her saving
(One) Hundred to appropriate $20 per annum to Juliet...
