Will of Margaret Collins
In re Margaret Collins deceased
This is the last will and testament of me, Margaret Collins, of St. John's, in the Island of Newfoundland, Spinster. I hereby revoke all former wills by me at any time made, and declare this to be my last will and testament. I desire that my just debts, funeral and testamentary expenses, be first paid out of my estate.
In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand at St. John's in the Island of Newfoundland this seventeenth day of November A.D. 1917. Margaret Collins. Signed by the said testatrix as and for her last will and testament in the presence of us, who, in the presence of the said testatrix and in the presence of each other, hereunto subscribe our names as Witnesses Jean G. Miller, J.A. Winter.
Correct Charles H. Emerson
(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.
