Wills - NJ - 1902 - Harry W. Page
Harry W. Page, manager of the Western Union telegraph company at Long Branch, and a former resident of Red Bank, who died about two weeks ago, made his will the day before last Christmas. He left a considerable estate. Three daughters, Milie Tola Page Cline, Edna Clair Page and Mabel Alma Page, will each receive $100. The rest of the estate, after paying all debts and funeral expenses, is ordered to be divided as follows:
To my son, Clarence Leslie Page, one twentieth.
To my daughter, Hazel Zelma Page, one thirtieth.
To my beloved wife, Anna C. Page, one fiftieth.
These last three bequests amount to only 18/100 of the residue of the estate, leaving about nine tenths of the residue unaccounted for. Mr. Page
probably intended to divide the residue into 100 parts, leaving 50 parts to his wife, 30 parts to his daughter Hazel Zelma, and 20 parts to his
son Leslie. This would account for the whole of the residue. The courts will probably be asked to construe this part of the will before the
estate is settled. W. Elwood Jeffrey and L. G. Bliss were the witnesses to the will.
