I will and appoint Mr. Thomas CASHIN and Mr. Maurice O'BRIEN to be my sole executors of this my last will and testament. I will and appoint that all my debts shall be paid before any of the foregoing bequests, Catherine X(her mark) CASHIN (LS) Signed sealed and delivered in presence of Maurice O'Brien, witness, Thomas CASHIN, M.

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.
