New Jersey Wills - November 24, 1897 - Maria Schneider
Maria Schneider's Will
Unmarried Daughters Sole Heirs, If They Don't Wed
These Daughters Tell the Executor to Sell the Property and Divide the Proceeds Equally
Among All the Children
The wills of the late Mrs. Elizabeth A. Brailey of Hazlet, Mrs. Annie E. Ure of Red Bank, Patrick Gallagher of Keyport, Mrs. Maria Schneider of Fair Haven, James Connolly of Eatontown township, Joseph T. Osborn of Middletown township and Mrs. Hannah Corlies of Long Branch, have been admitted to probate. Letters of administration have been granted in the estate of Elijah A. Johnson, to Josiah Schanck; in the estate of Ann Maria Brickett to Joseph E. Lingerman; and in the estate of John Perrine, to William H. Morris, Jr.
Mrs. Maria Schneider's will was a peculiar one. She bequeathed to her daughters, Annie M. Schneider and Maria L. Schneider , all of her real estate for life or until they marry. In case of the death of one, the property is left to the survivor; and if one marry it is to go to the unmarried one. If both die unmarried the will provides that the property is to go to the remaining children, Philip Schneider, Henry J. Schneider, William K. Schneider and Mrs. Emily Cross, share and share alike. In case of the marriage of both daughters the real estate is to be divided among all six children. To her daughters, Annie and Maria , Mrs. Schneider also left the income arising from all money or other personal property, as provided with regard to the real estate. After the death or marriage of those daughters the principal sum is to be distributed among the other children. Mrs. Schneider also left her furniture and household goods in her house at Fair Haven and all other personal property to her two unmarried daughters for life or until their marriage, under the same conditions as they get the other property. The daughters evidently do not think the will a fair one, for the executor, George B. Snyder, is authorized on the written request of the two daughters, to sell the real estate and to divide the proceeds among all the children. The will was made March 30th, 1896, being witnessed by James E. Degnan and Daniel H. Applegate.
