Bartow Co., Georgia  
Will Book C (1922-1956), pages 269-270  
Transcribed and submitted by: Margaret St. Jean


I, John Pavlovski, of said State and County, being of sound and disposing mind and memory, and desirous of directing how my property shall be disposed of after my death, do order, declare and publish this, my last will and testament, revoking all others theretofore made by me, in the name of God, Amen.

            ITEM I.            I desire that any debts that I may owe at the time of my death and my funeral expenses be paid by my executor without unnecessary delay. Also that any balance remaining on the expense of the funeral of my wife be paid at the same time.

ITEM II.          After my debts and funeral expenses are paid, I give to my executor, here below named, all property, both real and personal, and all other assets of any and all kinds. I give all my assets to the said named executor to use, control, manage, sell or convey any or all real and personal property, to reinvest the proceeds, or to do any way with said property and assets as in her judgment she sees fit so to do. It is not my intention to fix any time for the final adjudication or winding up of my estate.

ITEM III.         Owing to the fact that I have made my home for the past year or so with my son and his wife, Annie Mae Pavlovski and his wife being solicitous and loving in her care for my welfare, and knowing her to be charitable and honest, I name Mrs. Annie Mae Pavlovski as executor of this, my last will and testament, to have full authority to manage everything as she deems best, with power to make deeds and transact all business connected with said property, including the right to borrow money on the property, if in her judgment it is best so to do, without being required to make bond or any returns to any court, or to obtain any order from any court, unless in her discretion she sees fit so to do.

Signed, sealed, declared and published by John Pavlovski, as his last will and testament and in the presence of us, who at his request and in his presence and in the presence of each other, have subscribed our names and witnesses hereto.
