I'm not sure how unusual it was for a woman to leave a will in the early part of the 20th century. But my great-great-great-grandmother did. Note the date of the will: 5 May 1910, so she still couldn't vote. She mentions her two married daughters by name and place of residence (a surplus of riches for information and identification). And, of course, she signs the will at the bottom. Amy is part of my umbilical line.
