Mrs. Maria Sutphin empowered her executors to sell all the real estate which she might own at the time of her death. One-fourth of her estate she gave to each of three daughters, Mary Stilwell, Carrie Holloway and Annie Broach. The other fourth she left to her executors in trust, the income to be paid to another daughter, Jane Griggs, during the life of her husband , Benjamin Griggs, and if she survived her husband, then the principal is to go to her absolutely. Should he survive, at her death it was to go to Mrs. Griggs's daughter, Katie Griggs. Mary Stilwell, Carrie Holloway and Annie Broach are named as executors, to serve without bonds. The will was signed September 20th, 1893, with Rulif V. Lawrence and Rowland W. Ellis as witnesses. Mrs. Griggs opposed the probate of the will, but afterward withdrew her opposition.
