Issue 16 of Casefile Clues contains an "Order Probating Will" from 1903. Most of it is fairly straightforward, except for a little bit of the handwriting which was discussed in an earlier post.
What is strange is the individuals who were sent notice about the will. The heirs of the deceased at the time of her death were her five children and the children of a deceased daughter. For reasons I haven't figured out, children of a surviving daughter were also sent notice regarding the estate. The children of the surviving daughter are not mentioned in the will.
Why they were sent notice may have to remain a mystery.
However, two of the deceased daughter's children were sent "double notices" regarding their grandmother's estate. That I have figured out and we'll explain it in issue 16 of Casefile Clues.
