Will of Mary Elizabeth Taylor
In re MARY ELIZABETH TAYLOR. DECEASED.
This is the last will and testament of me Mary Elizabeth Taylor of St. John's Spinster. I appoint the Eastern Trust Company Executors of this my last will and testament. I give devise and bequeath everything of which I shall die possessed or entitled to whether real personal or chattles real to my nieces Olive Christian and Gladys O'Leary share and share alike. My Solicitor Mr. McNeily has a list of personal effects which I should like them to deliver to the friends mentioned in the list.
(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.
