George Jackson Will Is Filed
Cutting off his own daughter with $25, George Jackson, member of the nationally known firm of Jackson’s Napa Soda, who committed suicide Thursday in Golden Gate Park, left his estate valued at over $10,000 to friends, excepting his interest in the soda company which he bequeathed to his “pal and brother,” Andrew Jackson, whom he also named as executor of the estate.
The will was filed today in the Superior Court here by Carlos Freitas, attorney for the estate. It had been written by Jackson on last Christmas eve, and was a holographic document, without witnesses.
In cutting off his daughter, Jackson said that he “deemed” the $25 amply sufficient for her needs.
To Sally Cooley, 14-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. K. Cooley, whom he had known since a baby, he left his beautiful home at 110 Hillside Ave., San Anselmo.
To Frank Cooley, brother of Sally, he left his watch and chain and Lefevre shotgun; to Harry Le Bas, his Parker shotgun, his two Winchester rifles and his Buick automobile; to Mrs. Le Bas he bequeathed his Duo-art Steinway piano, a lamp and a vase and salad bowl; to Mr. and Mrs. E. W. Lundquist he bequeathed all his furniture, pictures, rugs, mirrors, plate and china which were in his apartment at 2164 Hyde Street; to Amiler Lundquist, their daughter, he left his library at his San Anselmo home; to the Presbyterian Orphanage at San Anselmo, he gave his Sonora phonograph; the residue of his estate as well as his interest in the soda company he bequeathed to his brother, Andrew.
