Will of Joseph Booth 4-25-1902

This New York newspaper article reports on Dr. Booth’s will, which was quite extensive. He left most of his estate to his wife Cora E. Booth and his niece Adrienne Clarke (who had been named after him). Two of his nephews contested the will at first, but later dropped their suit.
