Will of Frank Conger - 19020322

Will of Frank Conger

Brooklyn people were much interested yesterday by a romantic story revealed by the filing of the will of Frank Conger of that borough at Ithaca, N.Y. Mr. Conger who died in a hotel at Detroit recently, left an estate worth several millions of dollars. He was a bridge builder.

By many it was thought that his fourteen-year-old daughter, Oressa Stewart Conger, was his own child, but it not appears that the girl was really an adopted daughter of Mr. Conger. She was picked up by him in a train wreck at Hamburg, N.Y. twelve years ago. Her parents were killed in the wreck, and she was afterward legally made the daughter of Mr. Conger.

By the terms of Mr. Conger's will the adopted daughter is to share with the widow of the testator, during the widow's lifetime the income of $350,000, and is to receive the entire income after the death of Mrs. Conger. Miss Conger and Mrs. Conger are now in Groton, N.Y.
