North Carolina 19th century Wills and Probate
Seeking info from someone who is familiar with NC 19th century Wills. My question pertains to persons(s) listed in the will as benefactors. To your knowledge of these type wills were ONLY people listed as benefactors were living (alive at time of making will) or is it possible deceased persons were also listed as a benefactor as a way of representing that person(s) immediate family?
