Will of John Barron
The last will and testament of John Barron of the City of Brooklyn in the County of Kings and State of New York. I the said John Barron being of sound disposing mind and memory do make publish and declare this my last will and testament that is to say, I give devise and bequeath unto my wife Mary Barron one third part of all my estate real and personal. I give devise and bequeath unto my son Pierce Murray Barron one third part of all the residue of my estate real and personal. I give devise and bequeath all the rest residue and remainder of my estate real and personal unto my children James Barron, Henry Barron, Margaret Barron and Elizabeth Barron to be divided equally between and among them share and share alike. I nominate constitute and appoint my friends John Cochran M.D. and Edward Cavenagh executors of this my last will and testament hereby revoking all other and former wills by me at any time heretofore made.
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.
