Will of Catherine McGrath
In the name of God Amen. I Catherine McGrath Relict of the late John McGrath formerly living at Mosquitto but now residing in this Town being weak in body but of sound mind and of strong memory blessed be to the Almighty God, I now do hereby make this my last will and testament in manner and form following, viz-
|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.
