McIntire v. McIntire, 162 U.S. 383 (1896)

McIntire v. McIntire

No. 142

Argued March 13, 1896

Decided April 13, 1896

162 U.S. 383

Syllabus

On the trial of this case in the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia, that court, after examination of the facts, held that "(1) where a will relates only to personalty, and is in the handwriting of the testator and signed by him, no other formality is required to render it valid" in the District, and that "(2) Immaterial alterations in a will, though made after the testator's death by one of the beneficiaries under it, will not invalidate it" in the courts of the District "when not fraudulently made." This Court, after passing upon the facts in detail, arrives at substantially the same conclusions touching them as did the Supreme Court of the District, and affirms its judgment. chanrobles.com-red
