Dividing Up Estates

Sarah Kelsey of Colt’s Neck is to Have the Use of All Her Mother’s Property as Long as She Shall Live

Ann Kelsey, widow of Robert Kelsey of Colt’s Neck, made her will October 17th 1897. Three of her children, Catharine Desmond of Colt’s Neck, Mrs. Mary E. Berdine of Long Branch, and Robert Kelsey of New York, each received one dollar each, more as a remembrance than as a legacy. All the rest of her estate is to be held in trust for the benefit of her daughter, Sarah Kelsey, who has always made her home with her mother, and whose mind is thought to be more or less unbalanced. If any of Mrs. Kelsey’s estate should be left after the death of Sarah Kelsey, then it is to be divided in equal shares between Mrs. Kelsey’s other three children. John Statesir was made executor of the will and guardian of Mrs. Kelsey’s daughter Sarah. The witnesses to the will were Conover T. Taylor and Thomas Enright.
