Danielle, this is what I could make out. I didn't spend a lot of time on it, and had a little trouble with the zooming as the document is either really large or too small. However, I'm fairly confident in the names I was able to figure out, though I could certainly be mistaken on some of them. Others I couldn't quite get all of the name. Many were being set free. I only worked on the names as that was what you mentioned was needed.
Marcus Belisle's will
Looks like a mulatto girl named Hana Godfrey, his present house keeper, got his present house and lot of land
A negro girl named Lizy
A negro boy named Jack
A new negro girl named Sue
An old woman named Maria
A negro man named Dick
A negro man named Frank
Family of my negro woman named Sarah, with children who appear to be named Sylvia, Banan?, _ose (perhaps meant to be Rose?), Eve, Nancy, Fain?, Tom
Four children of Sylvia named Joe, Sna_t( or Smo_t), _yd__, and a female infant named Stelena?
Children of _ose named Mary, and a female infant named Margaret
Slave named Aberdeen

I hope this helps!
