U.S. Supreme Court

Cruit v. Owen, 203 U.S. 368 (1906)

Cruit v. Owen

No. 51

Argued October 19, 22, 1906

Decided December 3, 1906

203 U.S. 368


A trust in a will in favor of testator's four daughters and "from and after their death" for the "children of each of them," and in which the idea of provision for the grandchildren is especially prominent, will not be construed, by rigidly giving plurality to the pronoun "their," as creating a joint tenancy so that the last surviving daughter takes all the income to the exclusion of the children of her sisters previously deceased.

25 App.D.C. 514 affirmed.

The facts are stated in the opinion.
