Search this site by Keyword / Surname:


Garrett Schanck Conover Cut off one of his Children, Charles Conover, with a Dollar - His Widow to Get only Her dower Rights

Garrett Schanck Conover, who lived near Little Silver station and who died two or three months ago, left a will which has just been probated. The first item of the will, after providing for the payment of the debts of the estate, was in relation to his wife. Mr. Conover directed that his wife should not have any portion of his estate or property except her right of dower in his real estate, or such provision as he might make for her in lieu of dower.

Mr. Conover made a number of bequests to relatives. To his son, Charles Conover, he left one dollar only, the will adding, "And I direct he shall not have any more of my property or estate because of his unkindness to me during my illness."

To his sister, Sarah A. Morford, widow of John A. Morford, Mr. Conover left $100.

To his daughter, Irene A. Brown, wife of Nelson Brown, $100.

To his grandson, Harry C. Shoemaker, son of Mr. Conover's dead daughter, Mary, $50 when he becomes thirty years of age.

To his grandson, Benjamin A. Shoemaker, $50 when he becomes thirty years of age.

To his grandchildren, Linden Shoemaker and Walter Shoemaker, $200 each when they become 21 years old. To Linden Shoemaker was also left Mr. Conover's silver watch.

To his granddaughter, Sarah Conover, daughter of his son Charles, $100 when she becomes 21 years old.

All the rest of the property was directed to be divided between Mr. Conover's three children-George Conover, Irene A. Brown and Emily L. Parker, wife of Robert F. Parker, share and share alike.

A codicil made by Mr. Conover to his will, dated February 18t, 1897, left to his sister, Mrs. Sarah A. Morford, a number of articles of household use. The codicil states that these goods were left to her because of her kindness to Mr. Conover during his sickness.

Joseph S. Appplegate and James E. Lippincott were made executors of the will, but Mr. Lippincott renounced the trust and Mr. Applegate will serve alone. The will was made January 29th, 1896, with Frederick W. Hope and Benjamin J. Parker as witnesses.
