Will of Philip Holmes
In re Philip Holmes deceased
In the name of God Amen. I Philip Holmes being sick & weak in body but of perfect mind & memory thanks be given unto God calling unto mind the mortality of my body do make and ordain this to be my last will & testament --
In witness whereof I hereunto set my hand this first day of June one thousand eight hundred & twenty six – 1826. Philip his X mark Holmes. Witness present William Ellis. Clement Hudson. Hugh his X mark Hudson.
|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.
