|Disclaimer: The wills for volumes 1 and 2 are not made from the original will books, but rather from a set of books written up from the originals about 100 years later. The 1846 hand written will book that we are putting up along with the wills from the volume 1 will book, is not the original will book. It was made, probably within a decade of the death of the testators, but it is not an exact replication from the original will book.|
Will of Eugene Owen Francis
In re Owen Francis deceased.
In the name of God Amen, I Eugene or Owen Francis being in good health and of sound mind memory and understanding but conscious of the infirmity of man do make ordain and publish this my last will and testament utterly revoking and annulling all and every wills and will by me heretofore made, that is to say, Imprimis, I humbly bequeath unto my God my immortal soul trusting in the mercies of a Crucified Jesus through the intercession of His Virgin Mother and my body to the grave there to await in hope of a glorious resurrection.
Will of Eugene Owen Francis
In the name of God Amen, I Eugene or Owen Francis - being in good health and of sound mind memory and understanding but conscious of the infirmity of man do make ordain and publish this my last Will and Testament utterly revoking and annulling all and every Wills and Will by me heretofore made, that is to say - Imprimis, I humbly bequeath unto my God my immortal soul trusting in the mercies of a crucified Jesus through the intercession of his virgin mother, and my body to the grave there to await in hope of a glorious Resurrection.
In the Supreme Court
|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.
