Will of James J. Channing
In re James J. Channing deceased.
This is the last will of me James J. Channing of St. John's Newfoundland Druggist I devise & bequeath all my estate and effects real and personal which I may die possessed of or entitled to unto my wife Frances Channing absolutely and I appoint my said wife Frances Channing executrix and my brother Louis J. Channing executor of this my will and I revoke all former wills and codicils. Dated this twenty second day of March 1913. - James J. Channing -
(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.
