<br />WILL AND DECREE
<br />LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT
<br />14ILLARD A. PRINCE
<br />(generally called
<br />Now on this 12th day of November, 1940, at my re
<br />of sound mind and disposing memory, but not unmindful
<br />declare and publish this, my last Will and Testament,
<br />me made, and hereby solemnly declaring and publishing
<br />W. A. Prince )
<br />3idence in Grand Island, Nebraska, being
<br />of the possibility of death, do make,
<br />hereby revoking all former wills by
<br />this as my last Will and Testament:
<br />In the event of my death, I direct that my just debts and funeral expenses be first paid
<br />out of my estate.
<br />Several years ago my wife and children gave me a beautiful diamond ring. I do not know
<br />who the contributors were nor how much their contributions were. I.give, devise and bequeath
<br />said ring to the donors who gave the same to me in the same proportions as was their donation
<br />to handle as they desire.
<br />I give, devise and bequeath unto Harold Prince all my interest in our law library, office
<br />furniture and office fixtures, to him and to his heirs and assigns forever.
<br />All the rest, residue and, remainder of my property of every kind and nature whatsoever
<br />and wheresoever situated, I give, devise and bequeath and dispose of as follows, to -wit:
<br />(a) I give, devise and bequeath unto my wife, Carrie R. Prince, all our household furn-
<br />iture of every kind and nature whatsoever, to her and to heir heirs and assigns forever.
<br />(b) I give, devise and bequeath unto my wife, Carrie A. Prince, our home, being Lots
<br />One (1) and Two (2) in Block One Hundred Twenty -two (122), Koenig & Wiebe's Addition to the
<br />City of Grand Island, Nebraska, to her and to her heirs and assigns forever.
<br />(c) I give, devise and bequeath unto my wife, Carrie R. Prince, the life use of all the
<br />remainder of my property, both real and personal of any and all natures whatsoever, for her
<br />use during her natural life, she to have all the income, rent, interest and profits therefrom
<br />and she to pay the taxes and keep said property-in as good condition as is reasonable.
<br />(d) After the death of my wife, the property to which she is given a life use, I give,
<br />devise and bequeath as follows, to -wit:
<br />1. To my daughter, Hazel Bolton of Schuyler, Nebraska, one -third thereof in fee simple,
<br />to her and to her heirs and assigns forever.
<br />2. To my daughter, Elizabeth Fredrickson, one -third thereof, in.fee simple, to her and to
<br />her heirs and assigns forever.
<br />3. The other one -third of said property, I give, devise and bequeath as follows, to -wit;
<br />Unto my daughter, Roberta Prince, one -half of said one - third, to her and to her heirs and
<br />assigns forever. The other one-half of said one -third I give, devise and bequeath jointly,
<br />share and share alike, unto Willard Prince and James Prince, my grandsons, to them and to their
<br />heirs and assigns forever; the intention being hereby that each one of the daughters shall either
<br />personally or by the two children inherit exactly the same.
<br />In reference to the handling of the legacy which shall succeed to James Prince and
<br />Willard Prince, my grandsons, I give, to my executors authority and appoint them as Trustees to
<br />handle said bequest, invest the same, to collect the interest on same and to use the same
<br />carefully and economically for the education of said two boys and for other necessary purposes
<br />for their benefit giving them such discretion as is proper.
<br />I have a one -half interest in a farm in Merrick County, Nebraska, the other one -half owned
<br />by Ed Patterson. Unfortunately, it is mortgaged and I trust that my Exeuctors will give it
<br />careful attention to see that the interest and taxes are kept up as nearly as possible from the
<br />proceeds of the farm.
<br />Grace Lang is more familiar with my business probably than anybody else and I have the
<br />utmost confidence in her honesty and integrity and advise the Executors to consult her when-
<br />ever they desire information. I think she is familiar with practically every -piece of real
<br />estate that I own and quite familiar with the personal property, and I suggest that they give
<br />her a. fair and reasonable compensation for her services and it is my wish that they do so.
<br />Without attempting to dictate who should be the Executors of my estate, I have given the
<br />matter careful consideration, and after thinking it over, I have concluded that Edward Huwaldt
<br />and my son -in -law, Chris Fredrickson, should be jointly appointed Executors. I believe that
<br />they will handle the estate carefully and at a reasonable price, and I have full confidence in
<br />their honesty and ability. As before state, while I do not purport to dictate who shall be
<br />the Executors, if the two named are satisfactory to the heirs, they would seem to me to be
