|Note: Transcribed from LDS microfilm 2070897. This will is from the Newfoundland
will books vol 5 folio 486 probate 1890.
This is the will for Lucretia Sarah Calver Gill, second daughter of Nicholas
Gill and Elizabeth Mary Burton Gill. Her will is almost identical to the
will for her sister Amelia Gill, fourth daughter of Nicholas and Elizabeth.
Their wills were both dated 1873 and were obviously done at the same time
because of their great similarity.|
