New Jersey Wills - 1902 - Mary (Nolan) Loftus
Mary (Nolan) Loftus's Will
Her Estate to Go to Two Brothers and a Sister
Mrs. Mary Loftus of Freehold, who died a short time ago , made her will August 5th, 1891, and added a codicil December 20th, 1900. The will left Mrs. Loftus's sister Margaret all of her clothing and one-fourth of her estate. The codicil stated that Mrs. Loftus had made diligent search for her sister Margaret, who had formerly lived at Freehold, but had been unable to find her and the bequests to her were revoked.
Mrs. Loftus left all her clothing to the sisterhood of Saint Rose of Lima church, to be distributed among the poor of the church. She left $100 to the church itself, and she ordered that a suitable headstone, costing $75 be placed above her grave. A sister, Bridget Manahan of Freehold, gets $1. All the rest of Mrs. Loftus's property is to go in equal share to two brothers and a sister, these being William Nolan and Mrs. Ellen O'Donnell of Ballinamore Bridge, County Galway, Ireland; and Patrick Nolan of Church Lane, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England.
David D. Denise was made the executor of the will and the witnesses were D. D. Denise and A. A. Chambers.
