Will of Alice Murphy
The last will of Alice Murphy late of St. John's widow deceased
In the name of God amen I Alice Murphy of Newfoundland widow of James Murphy late of Catalina Newfoundland deceased being of sound and disposing mind memory and disposition do make this my last will and testament.
Signed published and declared by the said testatrix Alice Murphy in our presence who in her presence and at her request and in the presence of each other have hereunto subscribed our hands as witnesses. This 19th day of February Anno Domino 1900 Robert C. Russell Margaret Murphy.
I certify the foregoing to be correct copy of the last will of Alice Murphy
(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.
