(Listed in the margin next to this will the following)
|Note: The wills in those will books are NOT actual wills. They
are hand-written copies of a, "last will and testament," written 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.
