Saxton T. Bloodgood Provides for a Fine Monument
Saxton T. Bloodgood of Atlantic Highlands, who died at Denver, Colorado, on December 17th, left property valued at
$3,500. He left a will which he made September 27th, just before he went West. The will was witnessed by Harry Burdge of
Leonardville and Charles R. Snyder of Atlantic Highlands. Mr. Bloodgood provided in his will that a monument to cost $2,000
should be erected in the family plot of his father, Joseph Bloodgood, in Chestnut Hill cemetery at Old Bridge. This plot is
the finest one in the cemetery, and it is located on the top of the highest elevation in the neighborhood. Mr. Bloodgood held a mortgage
on the personal property of his sister, Mrs. Sarah B. Thom, widow of J. C. Thom of Atlantic Highlands. This mortgage was given to
Mrs. Thom, together with the accrued interest. All the rest of his property except the amount to be spent for the monument and the
amount of the mortgage was ordered to be equally divided between Mrs. Thom and Amarilla Owens, wife of Arnold Owens of Pluckemin, N. J., who
is another sister. Mr. Bloodgood had two other sisters, but they were not mentioned in the will.
