Teressa Leonard's Will
All Her Property Goes To Her Daughters
She Owned a House and Lot on Broad Street, Red Bank and Had Some Personal Property
The will of Mrs. Teressa Leonard of Red Bank was admitted to probate last week. Her home was at the corner of Broad and Beach streets, where she owned a house and lot, and where she had lived a number of years. She was the wife of John S. Leonard.
Mrs. Leonard's will directed that a suitable monument be erected over her grave. To her son, William Edgar Leonard, she left one dollar, he having had money and valuables before, and she released him from all debts due her from him. All of the rest of her property, real and personal, she directed be divided equally between her two daughters, Miss Marie Virginia Leonard of Red Bank and Mrs. Lizzie Applegate Abbey of New York, with the understanding that it was not to be subject to the control of Mrs. Abbey's husband, or Miss Leonard's husband should she ever marry. She directed that her daughters care for her husband during his life, but stated that he must not be a charge on the estate. The executrix named was Miss Leonard, one of her daughters.
The will is dated May 8th, 1892, and attached to it is a release of all interest in the estate, signed by John S. Leonard. William Pintard and Isaac H. Adlem witnessed Mrs. Leonard's signature. Mrs. Leonard's estate is estimated to be worth $9,000 in real estate and $1,000 in personal property.
