1857 Will of John Spicer Braddock, Sr.
John Spicer Braddock wrote out his will on 29 Oct 1857 and had it witnessed by his sons Spicer C. Braddock and Alex. J. Braddock, and a third individual, Thos. J. DuBose. A copy of the will would be filed by Sarah in October of 1866 after the death of her husband in an attempt to probate the remaining property. She would use the will as part of her evidence in her Standing Interrogation of 1872 and hence this copy. The existing copy on file at the Nassau County Courthouse under their land records is similar, though they are not exact copies, the differences do not affect the bequeaths of the will, but instead reflect careless copying. It is likely the one on file in the land records is also a copy of the original. The original believed to be extant.
