I do have a copy of his grandfathers will. I'm still trying to decipher it - 7 pages
long and each word looks identical to the next. It will be good practice for transcribing
old handwriting for sure.
I'm still puzzled by the wrong birth date of my LMD on the indenture though. Is it
likely that a legal document such as this could have a wrong birthdate?
Thanks Alwyn for your help. I was reading the document in a different way than you showed
me and what you said makes more sense to me. I'd better get transcribing the will to
see what it shows. It really is fun putting all these pieces together :)
