The will of James Harvey (1783-1878) was signed 3 May 1876. The first bequest was to his wife, Christina Harvey, and she was given use of his real and personal estate during her natural life. The second bequest was for the time following Christina’s “expiration.” Under the terms set forth, James Harvey’s real and personal property passed to his son, David, and his heirs, on the conditions that David pay his sister, Mary Harvey, $200 “on demand and also she is to have the use of the room in the west end of the dwelling house as long as she shall think fit to occupy it and pay to John Robertson the debt of $84 if not paid before.” J Harvey Robertson and James H Lackie were appointed executors. Witnesses were Caleb Smith and Robert Sheffroth. That part of the will has not been uploaded as the document is on legal size paper and would not fit in the scanner as a single sheet.
James M HARVEY is the grandfather of James Harvey LACKIE.
