New Jersey Wills - 1899 - Patrick Cooney

Patrick Cooney of Matawan township left a will in which he ordered $500 spent in buying a plot in the graveyard of St. Joseph’s church at Keyport, putting up a monument in the plot, and enclosing the plot with a fence. If his estate did not amount to that much all his estate was to be spent for that purpose. If it amounted to more than that, all that is over is to go to St. Joseph’s church. The will was made October 9th, 1897, and was witnessed by Benjamin B. Ogden and Joseph A. Ogden.
