In re Joseph R. Udell deceased
This is the last Will and Testament of me, Joseph R. Udell of
Carbonear in the Island of Newfoundland. I will devise and bequeath
to my daughter, Margaret Cameron a sum of two thousand dollars.
I will devise and bequeath to my daughter Jessie Joyce, a
sum of five hundred dollars; I will also devise and bequeath to my
daughter, Jessie Joyce, a sum of fifteen hundred dollars which
was loaned by me to her husband, Robert Joyce in the year
nineteen hundred and thirteen A.D.. I will also devise and bequeath
to my wife, Susannah Udell, my life insurance policy, equal
in value to a sum of fifteen hundred and sixty-nine dollars. I do
also request and enjoin my sons, William Udell and John
Udell, that they support and maintain their mother in the same
comforts as she has been accustomed during the remainder of her natural
life. I will devise and bequeath to my daughter, Nellie Udell,
a sum of two thousand dollars. I do also request that my sons William
Udell and John Udell support and maintain their sister Nellie in
the same comforts as she has been accustomed until such time as she
marries, after which they shall have no further obligations in this
respect, I do further request that the millinary business owned by
my three daughters and at present conducted by my daughter, Nellie,
shall, at what ever time it becomes necessary to wind the said millinary
business up, or have it terminate, that the proceeds shall be divided
equally amongst my three daughters, that is to say, the proceeds
realized from the sale of the stock at the time of closing the said
business and the profits derived from the said millinary business
since its inception, each and all to be equally divided amongst my
three daughters. I do further will, devise and bequeath all other
monies and property by me possessed to my sons William Udell and John
Udell to be equally divided between them, and I nominate, constitute
and appoint herewith my sons William Udell and John Udell Executors
to this to my last Will and Testament. In witness whereof I have
hereunto set my hand this fifth day of September one thousand nine
hundred and eighteen Anno Domini. Joseph R. Udell. Signed
by the said Joseph R. Udell, the Testator in the presence
of us present at the same time who in his presence and the presence
of each other subscribed our names as witnesses.

(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.
