I was able to read most of the words in Elisha Strong's 1841 will but not the two shown in red below. My transcription includes:

The Said Eunice Strong shall pay one third for the support & education of Lucy Strong and Julia C Strong until they are eighteen years of age and the remaining two thirds for their support to be paid out of the remaining two thirds of the property in ?? and received by the others heirs I give and bequeath unto my eleven children Elisha N Strong William Strong Moses D. Strong Jairus Strong Ira Strong William B Strong Wm Strong Angeline Collins ?? Stonell Lucy Strong and Julia Strong all the remaining two thirds of all my property

I realize it may be impossible to determine the daughter's name but am hopeful that someone can determine the earlier word.

excerpt of will

The Said Eunice Strong shall pay one third for the support & education of Lucy Strong and Julia C Strong until they are eighteen years of age and the remaining two thirds for their support to be paid out of the remaining two thirds of the property in proportion as received by the others heirs I give and bequeath unto my eleven children Elisha N Strong Wilber Strong Moses D. Strong Jairus Strong Ira Strong William B Strong John Strong Angeline Collins Densa Stowell Lucy Strong and Julia Strong all the remaining two thirds of all my property

Densa appears in other records as Dency. For example, here is her entry on FindAGrave.
