New Jersey Wills - 1900 - George H. Palmer
George H. Palmer of Long Branch, who died on Thursday, January 25th , made his will about two years
before his death. He left two daughters, Frances Palmer and Clara Palmer, both of whom live at
Toms River. His first provision was for a headstone over his grave to cost about $100 and for a
gravestone over the grave of his sister, Mary Thompson, to cost about $25. He directs that he be
buried in the graveyard of the Yellow Meeting House in Upper Freehold township, and he directs his
executor, Thomas R. Woolley of Long Branch, to erect a fence of stone posts and two-inch galvanized
rails around his burial plot. This fence is not to cost above $60. His wife, Mary Ann Palmer, is
to have the use and occupancy of a house and lot at Toms River as long as she should live, and at her
death it is to go to his two daughters. All the rest of his property is to be sold and the proceeds
divided equally between his two daughters as soon as the property can be sold advantageously. The
witnesses to the will were Ashley K. Bennett and Orville F. Bennett.
