Will of Jonathan Tibbo
In re Jonathan Tibbo deceased
This is the last will and testament of me Jonathan Tibbo presently residing at Grand Banks in the Island of Newfoundland. I hereby revoking all former wills at any former time made by me, and being desirous of settling my affairs in the event of my decease. Appoint my wife Francis J. Tibbo to be executrix of my property, moveable, real and personal, that shall belong to me at the time of my decease. Should the aforesaid Francis J. Tibbo, my wife survive me, all my property, moveable, real and personal, I bequeath to her during her life time, at her death my dwelling house and ground attached with out houses, carts, horse, I bequeath to my son John, and if my son Samuel comes home to stay he can have the garden for a building lot. The residue of my property, together with any moneys which I may possess, I bequeath to my children Ester Ann, John, George, Robert, Allen and Samuel share and share alike. I reserve the right and full power to alter or revoke these presents in whole or in part.
In witness whereof I have subscribed these presents at Grand Banks
this 24th day of March 1917. Jonathan Tibbo.

(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.
