Sumner County Court September Term Sept. 19th 1899.
A paper writing purporting to be the last Will and Testament of J. A. Trousdale deceased was this day produced in open Court for probate when B. F. Allen, W. W. Berry and R. E. Donnell personally came into open Court and being duly sworn depose and say that they were personally acquainted with J. A. Trousdale and that the handwriting of said J. A. Trousdale was generally known by his acquaintances and that they are acquainted with his handwriting and they verily believe the paper writing dated March 3rd 1899 and signed by J. A. Trousdale and purporting to be the last Will and Testament of J. A. Trousdale dec'd and every part of it is in the handwriting of J. A. Trousdale, and that his signature thereto is genuine. And R. E. Donnell and B. F. Allen being duly sworn depose and say that the paper writing was found after the death of said J. A. Trousdale among his valuable papers in his Bank Box deposited in the vault of the First National Bank of Gallatin Tennessee.
