Estate Valued At $30,000 Left To Nephew And Niece

Unity Church Receives A Gift Of $100
The Will Dictated To Miss Emily Burnett

One of the last things done by the lamented Miss Flora Wright before leaving her home a week ago Sunday was to dictate her last will and testament to her near friend, Miss Emily Burnett. This she did in few words, naming her niece, Edna Cleveland and her nephew Wright G. Cleveland, as her sole heirs, this property to be divided equally between them. One hundred dollars was left as a bequest to Unity Church. Buffon S. Walker was named as executor

The estate, consisting principally of stock in the Citizens National Bank and the Capital City State Bank and the large double brick residence block on East Locust Street, the house of the Wright family for many years, is valued at about $30,000.

Miss Wright was born in Cedar County, Iowa in 1858 and was the daughter and sole heir of the late General Ed Wright, once Iowa Secretary of State and Speaker of the House of Representatives, and long prominent in Iowa affairs.
