Wills - NJ - 1901 - Moses M. Marks
The longest of all the wills probated at Freehold last week was that of Moses M. Marks of Manasquan. Mr. Marks made his will July 18th, 1898. He left to his wife, Anna Marks, all the household goods and furniture owned by him, and he also left to her the sum of $5 per week, to be paid to her at the end of every week, as long as she should live. This sum was to be paid to her out of the profits of the tinsmith and stove business owned jointly by Mr. Marks and his son, Robert M. Marks. The tinsmith and stove business, together with all the stock in the store, the book accounts, horses, wagons and everything else pertaining to the business were left to his son Robert, subject to the payment to Mrs. Marks of the sum of $5 per week. Another son, William Marks, gets a lot(plot?) of land, containing about one acre, in Brick township, Ocean county. He also gets the sum of $25 in cash, and Robert is asked to keep him employed in the tinsmith and stove business as long as the two can agree. Two other children, Anna Laura Green and Henry Marks, have each received property and advances from their father, and because of this they are left only the sum of $25 each. Robert Marks was made executor of the will. Vincent T. Miller and Halstead H. Wainwright were the witnesses to the will.
