Will of John Glasco
The last will of John Glasco of St. John's brickwaller(?) deceased.
In the name of God Amen I John Glasco of St. John's brickwaller being of sound and disposing mind and memory and disposition do make this my last will and testament
Dated at St. John's this 23rd day of May 1901. John Glasco signed published and declared by the said John Glasco as and for his last will and testament in our presence both present together who in his presence and at his request and in the presence of each other have hereunto subscribed our names as witnesses. Thomas J. Nash William R. Howley.
I certify the foregoing to be a correct copy of the last will of John
(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.
