|Note: The wills and deeds in these will books are NOT original documents. They are hand-written copies
of a, "last will and testament, deed, etc. " written by the court clerk, after the death of the testator,
when the executor presented them to the court for probate, or after a deed was registered. The court clerk just put them in the book in whatever order they were in, no spacing most
of the time, no punctuation. The originals were kept by the executor, or lawyer.
We who have typed these wills, have made every effort to include all the errors that were on the microfilm,or photocopy in order to avoid destroying the integrity of the originals, where ever they may be.
