Renouf of Crabbs, as trustees, to have the management of my estate which they can use or dispose of in any way for the benefit and support of the said Elizabeth Renouf. At the death of the said Elizabeth Renouf whatever property, personal or real, that may be unsold at that time must be divided equally between the two trustees - Isaac Joseph Renouf & John A. Renouf, and same will be theirs, or that of their heirs, to do with as they wish. It is my will that my executors purchase a headstone to be erected in my memory, same is to be paid for from the estate. I hereby appoint James J. Renouf & John A. Renouf as executors of this my last will and testament to which I set my hand this 9th day of April in the year one thousand nine hundred and eighteen. [Signed] Clement Renouf.

(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.
