Will of Maria (Creswick) Frankland)
Last Will and Testament, hereby revoking and making null and void all other Wills and Testaments by me made heretofore: First: My will is that all my just Debts and Funeral Expenses shall be paid out of my Estate as soon after my decease as shall be found convenient. Second: I give, devise, and bequeath to my daughter Martha Budd all my Wearing apparel and my piano. Third: I give, devise, and bequeath to John Frankland, brother to my late husband the sum of one hundred dollars, if he shall be living at my decease. Fourth: It is my will and desire that all the Real Estate of which I may die seized and all the rest and residue of my personal property after providing for items two and three, shall be equally divided between my three children, Thomas Frankland, William Frankland and the said Martha Bud. Share and share alike. And all my household furniture of every description may be divided in lots of about equal value as my said children can agree. Or the same if they can not agree upon a division shall be sold and the proceeds of the sale shall be divided between them in equal shares. Fifth: I do hereby nominate, constitute, and appoint my two sons, Thomas Frankland and William Frankland as my executors of this my Last Will and Testament. And I do hereby authorize and empower my said executors with the consent of my said daughter if she should then be living, to sell and convey any and all Real Estate of which I may die seized and to execute and deliver to the purchaser or purchasers thereof good and sufficient deeds therefor without the order or authority of any Court for that purpose obtained. And to convey as good a title therefor as I could if living. Sixth: It is my will and desire that my said executors shall not be required to give or furnish any bonds for the faithful discharge of their duties as such executor. And that no appraisal of either my Real or Personal Estate shall be made.
In Testimony whereof, I have set my hand to this, my Last Will and Testament, at Cleveland, Ohio, this twenty fifth day of November, in the year of our Lord One thousand Eight Hundred and seventy eight.
