Will of George Cooper
In re estate of George Cooper deceased
In the name of God Amen. I George Cooper being of sound mind and in possession of all my faculties do now make my last will and testament as follows.
Witness my hand this the first day of December 1903 George Cooper his X mark Witnesses James Nurse Michael Ellmore his X mark Absalom Thistle
I certify the foregoing to be a correct copy of the last will and testament of George Cooper deceased.
(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.
