Mary Alice Ellison Probate File

2 Jun

Mary Alice Ellison, wife of Benjamin Walker Ellison, died 27 FEB 1913. Four days after her husband died. Below are select documents from her probate file from the Charlevoix County Probate Court.

You will note that Mary Alice made special mention of my great-grandfather Harold Ellison in her will. She had other grandchildren at this time. The letter is included in the file to prove the authenticity of Alice’s handwritten will. Also, Samuel Delmont, whom Alice refers to as Dell in her letter, asked the estate for $520.oo for services rendered. He had been living with Alice and Benjamin Walker and taking care of them. The court gave him $187 and some change.
