Petition to Set Aside the Probate of the Golden Will
Mrs. Ruth Griffith, of St. Louis, filed a petition in the County Court of Clay County last Monday, asking that the probate of the will of the late Dr. J. J. Golden be set aside and vacated on the ground that she, as a child, and one of the heirs of Dr. Golden, had been given no notice of the proceedings to probate the will. Judge Boyles has accordingly fixed the 29th day of December next as the date upon which the hearing on this petition will be granted. Meanwhile, the distribution of Dr. Golden s estate is postponed until Mrs. Griffith s claims can be heard. Mrs. Griffith claims to be a child of Dr. Golden by a first marriage, and that the Doctor recognized her relationship by providing for her for a long period of time prior to his death. As stated in these columns last week Dr. Golden left an estate amounting to about $35,000, which was about to be divided under the terms of his will between forty-seven of the nieces and nephews of himself and his wife. This action not only delays the distribution, but it may change the order of the court as to the proven and known beneficiaries. [Thursday, November 8, 1917]
