Bartow Co., Georgia  
Will Book C (1922-1956), page 309  
Transcribed and submitted by: Margaret St. Jean


I, Mrs. Mary (Joseph) Pavlovsky, of said State and County, being of sound and disposing mind and memory, and being desirous of directing how my property shall be disposed of after my death, do ordain, declare and publish this, my last will and testament, revoking all others heretofore 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 funeral expenses be paid by my executor without unnecessary delay.

ITEM II.          After my debts and funeral expenses are paid, I give to my executor, herein 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 his judgment he sees fit so to do. It is not my intention to fix any time for the final adjudication or winding up of any estate.

ITEM III.         Owing to the fact that some of my children have contributed more, financially, to the support of their parents in the past few years, I desire that my executor take into consideration this fact when final adjudication of my estate is made. It also is my desire that my daughter, Mary Pavlovsky Bradley, be cared for so long as she remains unmarried, given a home and support within reason.

ITEM IIII.        Having explicit confidence in the fairness and honesty of my son, Robert T. Pavlovsky, I appoint him executor of this, my last will and testament, to have full authority to manage everything as he 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 his 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 his discretion he sees fit so to do.
