And I give him the piece of land on the inside of the Road of the land on the other side of the river in the Bottom. And I also give him one of my Ewe Sheep.
I further direct that as in the above will I have bequeathed the house in which I live to John McKenzie son of my brother Earnest I direct that he shall not be given occupation of the same before three months elapse after my death except at the freewill of my brother Edwin
Codicil to my last will and testament, made this 15 April 1921, by me Robert McKenzie being of sound mind and memory.
(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.
