One Quick Handwriting Transcription Challenge Every Day-for the genealogist in you
Wow Michael this one is tough. How about Annie Terht? Of course the first letter of the last name could be a J...but Jerht doesn't make sense...well as far as that goes neither does Terht. ;)
Antie Techt? (and the Judge threw the Will out because her name was Annie, not Antie?) If you're going to guess, may as well take a real flying leap.)
Antie is how the first name was signed (and how her name is spelled in most of the estate papers, including a few typed references). Her first name wasn't actually Annie either and the name wasn't the likely reason her will was thrown out--that's going to be in an upcoming issue of Casefile Clues. The last name is difficult to read and I'll post the answer on it tomorrow if no one's gotten it before then.
Tait and Tate are names in Maine. Could it be Teiht?
Antie Fecht ?
Antie Fecht is what she signed and how the probate judge and clerk write the name several times in her probate file papers. Her first name was actually Antje.
