J. Elmer Nelson of Allentown made his will September 1st, 1897. John S. Hulse and Sarah E. Hulse were the witnesses. Mr. Nelson died last December, leaving a widow and two small children. He made his widow, Sarah W. Nelson, and his friend and neighbor, Elmer E. Hutchinson, his executors. They were directed to sell his woodland on Stone hill, and his horses, carriages, tools, etc., as soon as convenient and to pay all his bills. He left to his wife all his household goods and furniture and two houses and lots in the village of Nelsonville. To his son, Leon A. Nelson, he left his watch and chain, his writing desk, and his gun, guncase and fixtures, his mother to take care of these things until the boy is old enough to use them. All the rest of the estate is to be converted into income paying securities, and the income arising therefrom is to be paid to his wife for the maintenance of herself and her children. When his son Leon A. Nelson, arrives at the age of 21 years, he is to get $5,000. His daughter Mary Elizabeth Nelson, is also to get $5,000 the day she is 21 years old. When these bequests have been paid, his estate is to be immediately settled, and everything that remains after the payment of these bequests is to go to his widow.
