Mrs. Helen Forman Smith, Katharine L. Taylor and Mrs. Flavel McGee; and $500 each to the children of William H. Vredenburgh, Peter, Amy, Agnes,
Bessie and Willie. A lot on Main street, Freehold is ordered sold, and of the proceeds $400 is to go to Mrs. Harriet W. Chadbourne; $100 to
Kate E. Martin; and the net of the proceeds is to be equally divided among Louisa F. Walters, Josephine A. Walters, Annie Willis, Emilie C.
Willis and Elizabeth Willis Woodworth, cousins of Miss Forman. The income from a gas bond of $1,000 is to be paid to Miss Forman's aunt,
Matilda Walters, and at her death the principal of the bond is to be divided among. the five cousins named. A General Washington chair owned
by Miss Forman was bequeathed to Mrs. Flavel McGee; a tall clock to William H. Forman; and a silver sugar bowl, cream pitcher and teapot to
William H. Vredenburgh. All the rest of the estate, if there should be any, is to be divided among all the persons named in the will, in
proportion to the amount of their legacies. Wiliam Vredenburgh was made excutor of the will.
