Daniel Cook of Manasquan died September 16th, 1899. He began his will by stating that he was a painter by trade, and this was followed by the order to pay his debts with all convenient speed. His will was made in 1883, and at that time he had a daughter living, Emma Gibbert, but she has since died. His will provided for the payment of $10 to this daughter in one year after his death. All the rest of his property was bequeathed to his wife. The late Dr. A. A. Higgins and Eliza A. Higgins were the witnesses to the will.
