  OLD  WILLS  OF  SCHUYLER  COUNTY, NY  AREA - S thru Z
A thru G                   H thru R
*
These wills were discovered some years ago in the Schuyler co., NY Courthouse
in very old books in a corner.  They were hand-written on old paper and
do not appear in the regular indexed lists of wills at the courthouse.
Extracts of  the genealogy info from these wills were hand-copied by
Helena Howard as exactly as possible;  many spellings were slightly different from other
records, but none were altered.  Helena does not think these are available for photo-copying, except possibly from the original county where the will was filed.

Contributed & typed by Helena Howard.

Guide to abbreviations and format:
First date = date of  will (unless otherwise noted);
Second date = probate date;
Location usually follows; note that before 1855 when Schuyler co. was formed, the villages and
        towns were in neighboring counties.
Wife (wf) and sons (s) and daughters (dau) and grandchildren (gr s, gr dau) follow.
        (also brothers = bro, and sisters = sis)
Executors of the will are noted by "exec".
wit = "witnessed by", usually followed by 2 or 3 witness names, and their residences.
Sometimes the age at death (ae) or the death date is given, if known, often at the end.
