No.31 folio 533&c., except the little one story brick house, situated on said aforementioned property sold to me by said Price as aforementioned, and the ground upon which the same is built and the ground adjacent thereto and necessary for the complete and proper ownership of the same whatever that may be, the same to be hereafter determined by a survey of the said property I give and devise to my son Henry A. Holzen in fee simple and whenever the said Henry A. Holzen wishes to dispose of the same the survey of the said property can be made so that the said Henry A. Holzen can properly describe the said property and the courses and distances thereof, this not now being ascertainable from the deed as made out to me by the said Price Trustee which said deed as I recollect conveys to me the said property as a whole making a survey of the part of said property herein devised to my son Henry A. Holzen absolutely necessary in order that my said son Henry A. Holzen may properly enjoy the said part of said property as his own sole and individual property absolutely and in fee simple as the same is to him herein devised.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Fourth: I release and forgive to my son George Holzen, or to his representatives, if he shall die in my life time every sum of money with the interest thereon which may be owing from him or them to me, on account of money due from him to me up to this date, and I direct that any note or notes bond or bonds on other obligations or security or securities for the same shall be released or given up by my Executor to the said George Holzen or his representatives and I give and bequeath to my said son George Holzen the further sum of five dollars to be paid to him by my Executor and I direct that the said George Holzen shall not have any further interest in or participation in my estate.~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Fifth: I give and devise to my daughter Catharine, widow of Frank J. Glick of Cumberland Maryland all that certain lot of ground together with the improvements thereon fronting on North Centre Street in Cumberland Maryland, it being the same property that was conveyed to me by John Taylor and others by deed dated the fourth day of December 1865 and recorded in Liber H.R. No.23 folios 587&c. and I do also give and bequeath unto my said daughter Catharine, widow of said Frank J. Glick the sum of eight hundred dollars to be paid to her by my Executor as soon as practicable after my death.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sixth: I do hereby announce and declare that inasmuch as I have already long ago given to my three daughters, Mary G. Holzen, Elizabeth F. Holzen and Annie M. Holzen, all of whom now reside with me in my house, all my household and kitchen furniture, plate, books, pictures and effects in my dwelling house I confirm this gift to them and I do hereby direct that no account or inventory shall be taken of the aforesaid things hereinbefore mentioned, as I have parted with the possession of them and as they belong absolutely to my said three daughters aforementioned.
Seventh: I do hereby give and bequeath to my Executor the sum of four hundred dollars, which said sum of four hundred dollars I direct shall be paid over to the Priest in charge of Saints Peter and Paul's Roman Catholic Church in Cumberland Maryland to be expended by said Priest in saying or in having said masses for the repose of my soul and the soul of my deceased wife and I do hereby make mandatory upon my said Executor the payment of this said sum of four hundred dollars as hereinbefore mentioned in full and without any abatement or deduction and if the Orphans Court shall determine that the collateral inheritance tax will have to be paid on said sum of four hundred dollars then I direct my said Executor to pay said tax out of my estate,~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Eigth[sic]: I give devise and bequeath all the rest and residue of my estate and property real, personal and mixed of which I may died seized and possessed whatever the same may be and wherever the same may be unto my three daughters namely: Mary G, Holzen, Elizabeth F. Holzen, and Annie M. Holzen, to be equally divided by my Executor between them having already by separate deeds dated the 5th day of February 1903, and recorded among the Land Records of Allegany County Maryland, given to my said three daughters, Mary G. Elizabeth F. and Annie M. Holzen the real estate which I intended to devise and to will to them ~~~~
Ninth: I do hereby state that I have endeavored to do justice between all my children and that I think this disposition of my estate does justice to all my said children as far as it is possible for me at this time to try to do so; my son George having years ago, gotten from me when he was in the mercantile business far more than what would be his share. As to my son Anton Holzen Junior I gave to him fourteen years ago my business and the goodwill of my blacksmith shop together with all the tools and effects in said shop and never exacted any rent from him and paid the taxes on said property myself. I have likewise been liberal to my son John. As to my son Henry he has been living with me and has given me no trouble and in addition to the devise to him I hereby show my love for him and my confidence in him by making, constituting and appointing him the said Henry A. Holzen to be the Executor of this my Last Will and Testament and I direct that no bond be required of him, unless in the judgment of the Orphans' Court a bond shall be required for costs &c.. As to my three daughters Mary G., Elizabeth F. and Annie M. Holzen I have made them my residuary devisees and residuary legatees because they have not only managed and directed my household affairs, ever since my wife's death, years ago, thereby enabling me to accumulate what I have to dispose of but have in addition to this by their own industry and personal diligence practically supported themselves all these years since my wife's death and have and have[sic] thereby earned money of their own which money they have put into property and over which I have no control. I mention these things in order that the Court may understand why I have thus made this my Last Will and Testament there being so many contests of wills in these days by dissatisfied devisees and legatees.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Tenth: I direct that no inventory shall be taken of my estate.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Eleventh: As some of the children of my son Anton Holzen, Junior are infants I recommend as Guardian or Trustee of said infants their Mother Mary Malone Holzen, widow of my deceased son Anton Holzen, Junior.
Witness my hand and seal on this (second day) third day of March in the year nineteen hundred and three A.D. 1903

"Hany" Humberston received her payment in 1809, George received his in 1812 and Jane & spouse Patrick Coulter signed their release in 1813.  It is not known if, or when the others were paid or if they failed to claim their legacy.
