Will of Patrick Coughlan
In the name of God Amen, I Patrick Coughlan do hereby make this my last will and testament and bequeath all my lands property and effects to my wife and daughters for their sole and exclusive use and benefit subject to the payment of all my just debts hereby revoking all other wills by me heretofore made and appointing my wife Bridget my sole executrix. As witness my hand the second day of May A.D. 1830. Patk Coglan. Witness, P.F. Little, Alice Mallowney, Anne Burke.
|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.
