Will of William A. Oke
In re WILLIAM A. OKE. DECEASED.
Property House and Land on Victoria Street, West side formerly owned by Isaac Martin and Benjamin. The Southern part on which it stands, bought from Isaac Martin, was deeded to my wife in 1897; the Northern part, was bought from Benjamin Martin by my wife, and is registered in her name. My interest in the Standard printing business, namely one half, is to rest in my wife's name, subject to whatever disposition she may make. Building and land is included in the business.
(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.
