The Sickles Will Case
Testimony Taken Yesterday Before the Vice Chancellor
Testimony in the contested will case of the late George H. Sickles of Navesink was begun yesterday at Trenton before Vice Chancellor
Reed. Mr. Sickles left his farm to his daughter-in-law, Mrs. Fred Sickles, for life, and at her death his estate is to be divided
among all his children. The will was contested on the ground that undue influence was exerted to have Mr. Sickles make the will
in his daughter-in-law's favor, and also on the ground that he was not competent mentally to make a will. Webster Swan and John
H. Johnson, the witnesses to the will, were among the witnesses sworn yesterday, and the other witnesses were Charles Allen, Sr.,
Peter J. McClees, R. S. Snyder, Omar Sickles and Mrs. Albert Sickles. After hearing these witnesses the case was adjourned until next month.
