Wills - NJ - 1901 - Elisha Morrison
Missing Will Said To Have been Made But Can Not Be Found
A will has not been found in the case of Elisha Morrison, who died a couple of weeks ago at Eatontown, leaving six nieces and
nephews. It has been stated that Mr. Morrison left a will, but it has not come to light, although diligent search has been made
for it among Mr. Morrison's papers and also among the papers of lawyers with whom he did business. No lawyer has been found who
knows that Mr. Morrison drew a will, but it is thought that Mr. Morrison might have drawn the will himself and left it with some
other papers at the offices of some of the lawyers where he was doing business. William R. Stevens of Eatontown has been
appointed administrator of Mr. Morrison's estate, but as yet he has done very little except to take charge of the property
and to have appraisers go over some of the personal effects. He has been waiting before proceeding further to see if the will
turned up; but if it is not brought to light in a few days he will proceed vigorously with the administration of the estate until
the work is completed. Among Mr. Morrison's effects were six bank books. Mr. Stevens had these written up at the banks and found
that on the whole six books Mr. Morrison was just four cents to the good.
