Will of Michael Comerford
The last will of Michael Comerford of Boston U.S.A. Letter Carrier deceased
Be it remembered that I, Michael Comerford now of Boston in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and late of St. John's, Newfoundland in the British Provinces being of sound and disposing mind and memory but knowing the uncertainties of this life do make this my last will and testament hereby revoking and making null and void all other wills by me heretofore made.
In testimony whereof I hereunto set my hand and seal in the presence of these witnesses and declare this to be my last will and testament, this 9th day of December 1903 Michael Comerford (LS) Signed sealed published and declared by the above named Michael Comerford as and for his last will and testament in the presence of us and in the presence of each other have subscribed our names as witnesses thereto. Jeremiah J. Mahoney Edward P. Morton Daniel F. Mahoney.
I certify the foregoing to be a correct copy of the last will of Michael Comerford.
(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.
