Order Probating Barbara Haase Will

I'm wrapping up the article on the Order Probating a 1902 will. Fortunately I have the court book record copy and the original, which were apparently written by two different people. The names are easier to read on one than on the other.

I still don't know why children of one daughter were given notice, but I'm leaving that as an unanswered question for a later issue. Sometimes one has to know when to stop.

Interestingly enough, the testator gives her grandson $1 and gives his wife $250. That I think I have figured out. It really doesn't have too much to do with the analysis of the order and the heirs, but makes for an interesting aside.

Subscribe now and get in on the fun. Old records are rarely boring.
