My share of the above mentioned land I will and bequeath to my grandson Frederick Clarence Diamond; and I appoint my son James House(?), to take care of said piece of land and to use it if he so desires till my grandson Frederick Clarence Diamond reaches the age of 21 years.

(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.
