In re Ann Maria LeDrew deceased
This is the last will and testament of me Ann Maria LeDrew of Cupids, Newfoundland wife of John LeDrew deceased. I give, devise and bequeath all my real and personal estate of every description unto my nephews John Knight Bonnell and William Bonnell, sons of my beloved sister, Margaret Bonnell, absolutely save and except my bed and bedding which I give to my niece, Mildred Taylor, daughter of my brother William R. Taylor and one overcoat and suit of clothes which I give to my said brother William R. Taylor. I appoint my nephew William Bonnell sole executor of this my will and revoke all previous wills by me at anytime heretofore made. In witness whereof I hereunto set my hand this sixteenth day of February in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and twenty, after having had all herein carefully read over and explained to me ere the signing thereof. Ann Maria her X mark LeDrew. Signed by the said Ann Maria LeDrew, the testatrix, by making her mark, in our presence who in her presence and in the presence of each other at the same time subscribed our names as witnesses. Robert J. Smith, Merchant Cupids. Alex Serrick Teacher Cupids.

(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.
