James McDonough Leaves $4,000 to His Daughter and the Rest of His Estate to His wife.
During the past week seven wills have been probated in the surrogate’s office at Freehold. The executors of the wills have qualified, and the seven estates are now in course of settlement.
One of the wills probated was that of James McDonough of the Highlands, who died January 6th. Mr. McDonough left a young daughter. He made his brother, William McDonough of Holmdel, his executor, and he instructed him to invest $4,000 from the proceeds of his estate, and use the income from this money to pay for the support and education of his daughter until she became 21 years old, at which time she is to receive the $4,000 outright. All the rest of his property he gave to his wife outright. The will was made September 19th, 1899, and was witnessed by John E. Foster and Murray E. Foster.
