A Collection of Newfoundland Wills
Mary Ellen Furlong
(Transcribed from the Original Document)
|This is the will of my Great-Grandmother Mary Ellen Furlong (maiden name Stephenson). She wrote the original will in long hand in 1907 after she had moved to Lynn, Mass. from St. John's Newfoundland. She died in 1913 and as you will see the will was "amended" years later in 1938 by none other then Robert Stafford Furlong, the eventual Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Newfoundland. I am not 100% certain of my connection to him but I believe we would have been 4th cousins. Robert Alsop's name can also be seen on the document. Alsop was a prominent family in legal circles in St. John's in those days as were the Kent's, one of whose names. DQ Kent also appears on the document. (Paul Furlong - contributor)|
