I appoint my daughter Margaret Stephens Rogers of the City of Moncton in the County of Westmorland aforesaid to be the Executrix of this my Will.

After paying all my just debts and testamentary expenses I will and bequeath to my daughter Margaret Stephens Rogers all the rest and residue of my real and personal property of whatsoever nature and wheresoever situated of which I may die possessed or entitled to. If the said Margaret Stephens Rogers should die before me, I will and bequeath all the rest and residue of my real and personal property of which I may die possessed or entitled to, to the following persons, my sons, namely, George Apsey of the City of Buffalo, Arthur Wellsley Apsey of the city of Buffalo and John Fletcher Apsey of the city of Baltimore in the United States of America to be equally divided between them share and share alike.
(Listed in the Margin next to this will the following)
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 and also no paragraphs. 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. However, in some of the very long wills, we have tried to insert paragraphs to make it easier for the researcher to read the document.
