Will of Sarah Ann McKay
In re SARAH ANN MCKAY. DECEASED.
I Sarah Ann McKay (Widow of the late Joseph McKay) of Stephenville Crossing in the District of St. George, being of sound mind and memory, do make and declare this, my last Will and Testament. I give and bequeath to my son Alfred McKay a piece of land, about two acres more or less, situated near Harry's River. I give and bequeath to my son Notman McKay my dwelling house with its contents, all my land, except what is otherwise mentioned, and all other property, personal and real, that I may possess at the time of my death. I appoint my son Notman McKay as sole Executor of this my last Will and Testament to which I set my hand and Seal this 30th day of November in the year of Our Lord, One thousand nine hundred and twenty. (Signed) SARAH ANN MCKAY.
(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.
