Does Not Look Like Lena to Me


Would you have thought this will reference was directed to "Lena Ensminger?" It certainly looks like something else, but it's clearly to whom thie 1902 will from Warsaw, Illinois, was referring. Issue 17 will discuss the "order" directing this will be admitted to probate and I'm thinking of transcribing the will for a future issue of Casefile Clues. Many names are spelled creatively in the will and even the executor did not know who a few of the people were. There is a likely reason why the son didn't know exeryone to whom his mother left money--but we'll save that detail for later.
