Will of Alexander M. MacKay
MacKay Alexander M. Last will of
In this my last will and testament I revoke all or any previous will and leave to my dear wife all that I may be possessed of for her own use; excepting my watch and chain which was a present from the Telegraph employees which I leave to my son James and "also excepting a piece of plate presented to me for long & faithful services" by the Directors of the new York Nfdland London Telegraph Co. of New York by which I mean that portion of the plate bearing the inscription which I leave to my son William Alexander MacKay and I also direct that my dear wife may present to my third son Eric something of equal value A. M. MacKay. St. John's Nf. October 7th, 1905
I certify the foregoing to be a correct copy of the last will of Alexander M. Mackay
(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.
