Will of Mary B. O'Mara
In re Mary B. O'Mara deceased.
This is the last will and Testament of me Mary Byrne O'Mara, of St. John's in the Island of Newfoundland, widow and I hereby revoke all former wills and Testamentary dispositions made by me. I give and bequeath all my estate and property of every description both real and personal, unto my daughter, Margaret Byrne O'Mara, absolutely, and I appoint her the sole executrix of this my will. I will and direct that after my death my said executrix shall cause to be celebrated twelve low masses each year for three years for the repose of my soul and the souls of my deceased husband and family. I will and direct that my executrix shall look after and take care of my son at present in the Lunatic Asylum, St. John's, during his lifetime, and at his death to see that he is buried in a proper and fitting manner.
(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.
