Will of Mary Teresa McCarthy
In re Mary Teresa McCarthy deceased
This is the last will and testament of me Mary Teresa McCarthy of
St. John's, Spinster. I revoke all former Wills by me at any time
made and I appoint my niece Catherine Dunphy the Executrix
of this my will. I give and bequeath all the property of whatsoever
kind I may die possessed to my said niece and her daughter Marie for
their own use absolutely in equal shares between them. In witness
whereof I have hereunto subscribed my hand at St. John's aforesaid
this fifth day of February A.D. 1920. Mary Teresa her X mark McCarthy.
Signed published and declared by the Testatrix as and for her last
will and testament in presence of us, both being present at the same
time who at her request and in her presence hereunto subscribe our
names as witnesses attesting the due execution hereof, the same having
been read over and explained to the testatrix who appeared perfectly
to understand the same and who signed the same by making her mark
in our presence.

(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.
