the western side of the walk from the road to the stage. To my son Charles I
leave the garden he holds at present situated in the southern side of the cove
from the little brook thence to Frank Piccos fence. I also appoint Michael
Dicks, executor to this my last will and testament - George Antle his
Correct Charles H. Emerson

Note: The wills in those will books are NOT actual wills. They are either hand-written copies or in later years typed copies of a, "last will and testament," written or typed by the court clerk, after the death of the testator, when the executor presented them to the court for probate. The court clerk didn't list the signatures at the bottom, he (or she) just put them in the book in whatever order they were in, on the original document, no spacing most of the time, no punctuation. The originals were kept by the executor.
We who have typed these wills, have made every effort to include all the errors that were on the microfilm, in order to avoid destroying the integrity of the originals, where ever they may be.
