New Jersey Wills - August 24, 1898 - Meredith Ivy

Search this site by Keyword / Surname:


Meredith Ivy of Lake Como, in Wall township, left $5 to each of his two sons, John H. Ivy and George W. Ivy; and to two of his daughters, Mary Eliza Ivy and Emily V., wife of Otto Woolley, he left $30 each. These sums are to be paid in cash. All the rest of his estate comprising both real and personal property, was left to his daughter, Martha J. Ivy. His daughter Martha is to care for and to keep her mother as long as she may live, and is to defray her funeral expenses at her death. The house is also to be a home for Mary Eliza Ivy as long as she may choose to stay there. Martha is prevented from selling the house until after the death of Mr. Ivy's wife. Dr. William W. Trout of Spring Lake Beach is made executor of the will. Mr. Ivy was a member of the American Mechanics and Dr. Trout is instructed to collect the death benefit from this lodge, as well as all other moneys arising from the estate, and to pay it over to Martha J. Ivy in such sums and at such times as his judgment shall determine. Mr. Ivy did not begin his will with the statement, "In the name of God, amen," as is usual; but he closed his will with the statement, "In the presence of God and man I hereby subscribe my name to this my last will and testament this fifth day of May, 1898." The witnesses to the will were R. T. Divine and Henry C. Bennett.
