Elizabeth Inman's 1785 Will 

Falling ill in early April 1785, Elizabeth Murray Inman spent the weeks before her death with three of her nieces at her side.  She also made some individual bequests and wrote a new will to replace the one written in 1769. 

Without a prenuptial agreement, she would not have been able to write a will.
