Nicholas Fry Will


I, Nicholas Fry, being of sound and disposing mind and memory, considering the uncertainty of continuance in life and desiring to make such disposition of my worldly estate as I deem best, do make, publish and declare this to be my last Will and Testament, hereby revoking and annulling any and all former or will or wills, whatsoever by me made.

First: I desire all my just debts and funeral expenses to be paid as soon as possible after my decease.

Second: I give and bequeath to my beloved wife, Rachel Fry, all lands, moneys and all personal property belonging to me at the time of my death for her use and possession as long as she shall live, and after the death of my wife Rachel Fry the property is to be divided as follows:
      To my son A. J. Fry I give $5.00.
      To my son M. C. Fry I give $5.00.
      To my daughter Julia Ann Goff I give $5.00.
      To my son James Fry I give $5.00.
      To my son Daniel Fry I give Lot No. 18 in the original plat of the town of McKeey, Liberty township, Van Wert       County, Ohio.
      And to my son Thomas Fry I give and bequeath all the rest of my estate, both real and personal, but the said       Thomas Fry is to give his sister Orlida Fry one hundred dollars when she comes of the age of 21 years and also       the said Orlida Fry is to have the organ I purchased for her.

Third: I nominate and appoint Thomas Fry to be the executor of this Will.

In witness hereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this 21st day of September, 1891.
