Description
Documents pertain to a case filed by the executor of the will of Susan Smith, deceased (Dingle) against the nephews and nieces of Thomas Smith, deceased, (Newell, Newell, Morrison, Gibson, M. Cockcroft, T. J. Smith, C. C. Smith, W. H. Smith). Thomas Smith allegedly left his estate to his wife, Susan Smith. The instructions regarding what is to be done with T. Smith's estate after the death of his wife differ between T. Smith's will and S. Smith's will. The defendants in this case are potential beneficiaries of the wills. The amount of the estate to which S. Smith was initially entitled is also in question. Includes the full names and professions of the defendants, information on family relationships within the Smith family, and a judgment paper.
