I peter Winsor, of Wesleyville, do make and establish this my last will and testament. I give and bequeath to my wife Emily Winsor, to be held by her for her benefit during her widowhood all and everything in manner following: - my dwelling house shop land, stores, flakes, boats, shipping, fishing gear. I also give and bequeath to my said wife under the same conditions as the above, all my money both at the Government Savings Bank and at the Bank of Montreal together with the amount due to my estate by the Mutual Life Insurance Company of New York.
I certify the foregoing to be a correct copy of the last will of Peter Winsor.
(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.
