Will of H. A. O'Connell
The Will of H. A. O'Connell in Will Book 201 pages 96 - 110 is included in the
legal description for Accotink. It should not be. It is an obstacle that will not be
explained or removed. History suggests that it will be used in my sale of Accotink
as it was in the surprise settlement of my sale of 1988:
" ...whereas , Harold A. O'Connell died testate May 26, 1975, and by his Last
Will and Testament recorded in Will Book 201 at Page 96, devised his interest to
his executor Anthony M. O'Connell, Trustee; whereas Anthony M. O'Connell,
Trustee, could not qualify and Herbert A. Higham, Trustee, was appointed to act
. in his place and stead". (From the deed at Book7005 page 0634)
I can't convince you, Jean and Sheila, that the above is not true because it is my
word against the word or implication of people in powerful positions of trust.
The only way to justify Dad's Will as part of the current legal description for
Accotink is if I had not qualified as Trustee under Dad's Will. Then my signature
as Trustee under the Will on the documents creating the Virginia Land Trust for
Accotink would not be valid. And history suggests that conflict and confusion, and
secrecy and money disappearing, with follow.
Stewart Title will not answer these questions:
(1) What does Stewart Title see in the contents of the Will of H.A. O'Connell
that makes Stewart Title include it in the legal description for parcel 0904
(2) On what date did Anthony M. O'Connell qualify as Trustee or Co-Trustee
under the Will of H. A. O'Connell according to Stewart Title's records?
