New Jersey Wills - 1902 - Mrs. Gertrude A. Errickson
Mrs. Gertrude A. Errickson of Manalapan township, widow of George P. Errickson, who died recently, left
considerable property in this county and also a house and lot in Brooklyn. Her will was made August
1st, 1901. The witnesses were Henry D. Davenport and William L. Conover. Mrs. Errickson’s son, Arthur
Errickson, and her friend, Ralph Stout of Brooklyn, were made the executors of the will. The executors were
instructed to take the income arising from the Brooklyn property and after paying taxes, assessments,
repairs, etc., to pay the remainder of the income on the debt against that property until the debt was
paid off. After the debt is paid the income is to be spent by the executors in caring for Mrs.
Errickson’s daughter Breta and educating her for a school teacher. When Breta is eighteen years
old the Brooklyn property is to be sold. Breta is to receive $2,500 of the money received for the
property, and Mrs. Errickson’s son, Wesley Errickson, is to receive $500. The rest of the money
received from the sale of this property is bequeathed to Arthur Errickson. Another son, George
Errickson, is to get a mortgage which Mrs. Errickson held against the farm on which they lived.
Of the personal property left by Mrs. Errickson, her piano, her parlor furniture and a bedroom suit
and bedding goes to her daughter, Breta. To her other daughter, Anna McElwaine she left a bedroom
suit and bedding, her Lady Washington reception picture, the family bible and a set of solid silver
spoons. All the rest of the household goods she left to her son George. Any other property which
Mrs. Errickson left was ordered sold and the proceeds will be divided equally among four of Mrs.
Errickson’s children-Wesley, Arthur, Anna and George.
