"Will Declared Invalid"
Jerseyville - The Surpreme Court of the State of Illinois recently rendered a decision regarding the "Will" of the late John R. Beatty of Jerseyville, which is said to be the only decision of its kind ever rendered in Illinois. A similar decision was rendered in the Estate of Samuel J. Tilden of New York, who in 1876 ran for President of the United States. In Mr. Beatty's will, he requested that no lawyer have anything to do with his estate, which was valued at $60,000, and he set forth to whom the money should go. At present there are nine lawyers engaged
