New Jersey Wills - June 30, 1897 - Mrs. Mary Holmes Taylor
Dividing Six Estates
Wills Probated At Freehold Last Week
Mrs. Mary H. Taylor's Property Goes to Her Two Children, Mary and Edward - Mrs. Patience Burlew's Estate-Other Wills
Six wills have been probated at Freehold during the past week. All but one of them were wills of women. The wills were those of Mrs. Mary Holmes Taylor of Middletown; Mrs. Patience Burlew of Middletown township; Mrs. Maria Sutphin of Marlboro township; Mrs. Sarah Estell of Greenville; Miss Susan Jefferson of Ocean township and New York; and Joel Woolley of Neptune township.
Mrs. Mary Holmes Taylor's will was made over nine years ago, on May 12th, 1888. It was witnessed by Joseph D. Thomas and E. C. Taylor. Mrs. Taylor bequeathed to her son, Edward Taylor, a watch, a silver pitcher, an antique silver mug, a Chinese teakwood table and stools, all her books and her father's portrait. To her daughter, Mary H. Taylor, she left a note for money which she wished her to have in her own right, all silver and plated ware not especially designated, all her jewelry, a blue plush sewing chair and rosewood sewing table, a set of bird'seye (sic) maple furniture, spar candlesticks and a wardrobe. A suit of mahogany bedroom furniture and a wardrobe were given to Mr. Edward Taylor. The will provides that no part of the money which her daughter Mary has in a savings bank should be used for her funeral expenses, as this money was the daughter's individually, as an equivalent for money received at various times by Edward Taylor. Edward Taylor and Miss Mary Holmes Taylor were appointed executors and all property not otherwise disposed of is to be divided between them equally.
