Wills - NJ - 1900 - Mrs. Margaret Thompson
Mrs. Margaret Thompson died last March at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Oscar Hesse, Jr., of Red Bank. She left three children,
the daughter at whose home she died, Mrs. Harry VanPelt, of Marlboro and Rev. Robert Rhea Thompson of Dalton, Pa. To her daughter
Sarah E., wife of Harry VanPelt, Mrs. Thompson left a house and lot at Marlboro. This property, after Mrs. VanPelt's death, is
to go to her son, Leslie Leroy VanPelt. In consideration of this bequest Mrs. VanPelt is to take care of Sarah Combs, Mrs.
Thompson's sister, as long as she shall live. Mrs. Thompson left $200 to a distant relative and all the rest of her property
is to be divided equally among her three children. Rev. Robert Rhea Thompson was made executor of the will, which was made a
week before Mrs. Thompson's death.
