Wills - NJ - 1901 - John Smock
John Smock of Marlboro, who died of consumption about a month ago, was unmarried. He made a number of bequests to relatives, and then left all the rest of his estate to his mother, Cornelia Ann Smock. His father, Jacob Smock, was made the executor of the will. The will was made April 24th of this year, only a few days before his death. The witnesses were Holmes B. M. Dennis and David A. Baird. The special bequests made were $100 to his sister Ella, wife of Walter Reid; $50 to his niece, Verna Reid, daughter of his sister Ella, when she arrives at the age of eighteen years; a black mare to his father; and a half interest in a Babcock buggy to his brother James B. Smock, the two brothers having owned this buggy jointly. Mr. Smock had two ten-dollar gold pieces, which were keepsakes, and one of these he gave to his mother and the other to his father.
