Since the posting of this will, we received this information from Mike Power:
It is the will on Honora Power volume 6 pages 587 - 588 probate year 1900. The error relates to her sister named in the will. It is listed as Mary Harvey when it should read Mary Harney. For confirmation you could look at the will of Honora's husband Edmund in volume 4 page 119 probate year 1881.
After checking both wills, we have changed the name to Harney.
