This is a copy of a will that I made at the DAR library in Washington. It was part of an application package for membership.  The copy I have is hand written and is very difficult to read.  I have made the best
transcribtion that I could without making it say what I thoght it said.  

The will is actually filed in Exeter, Otsego County, NY, but since Ransford was born in Montville, I thought it would be useful to have here too.  I am descended from Guy D. Comstock who is mentioned in
this will.  Eric Schultz    eric.schultz@iname.com
