Mrs. Elizabeth H. Combs's Will

Elizabeth H. Combs of Freehold, who died July 11th, left a considerable estate. She left a husband, two daughters and four grandchildren. Her husband Edward T. Combs, is to have the use of all her property as long as he shall live. At his death $100 is to be put out at interest for each of Mrs. Combs's grandchildren. These grandchildren are Edward C. Duryea, William B. Duryea, Helen B. Oakley and Grace H. Oakley. As these grandchildren reach the age of 21 years they are to receive this $100 and the accumulated interest. After setting aside the $400 required to make this fund for the four grandchildren, all the rest of the estate is to be divided equally between Mrs. Combs's two daughters. Christina H. Duryea and Julia H. Oakley.

Mrs. Combs made her will July 10th, the day before her death. Her husband, Edward T. Combs, and her son-in-law, William B. Duryea, were made the executors of the will. The witnesses were Dr. McLean Forman and Frank F. Randolph.
