Griffin Signed and published in our presence of the testator. G. W. O. Griffin State of Tennessee Sumner County Court September Term Sept. 23th 1893 A paper writing purporting to be the last Will and Testament of Nathaniel Robertson deceased was this day produced in open Court for probate, which is duly proven by the oath of G.
