Will of Adolph G. Warren
This is the last will and testament of me Adolph G. Warren of St. John’s Accountant. I desire that the annual rents issues and profits arising from the whole of my estate real and personal shall be paid to my wife to be applied by her in her discretion to the joint support and maintenance of herself and my daughter Frances Ella Warren until the death or marriage of either of them Upon the death or marriage of either I desire that the whole of my estate shall then go to the other for her sole separate and absolute use. I bequeath to Elizabeth Walker the sum of forty dollars. I appoint James S. Winter of St. John’s Q.C. executor of this my last will. Dated at St. John’s this twelfth day of June A.D. 1885. A.G. Warren. Witnesses, J. S. Winter, L.M. Coen.
Note: The wills in those will books are NOT actual wills. They are either hand-written copies or in later years typed copies of a, "last will and testament," written or typed 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 and also no paragraphs. 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. However, in some of the very long wills, we have tried to insert paragraphs to make it easier for the researcher to read the document.
