I, Sallie T.

3. All the rest, residue and remainder of my estate I give, bequeath and devise unto my son Joseph d. Hoopes, in trust, However, as to so much thereof as may be required to produce an annual income of one thousand dollars, clear of transfer inheritance and all other taxes, and absolutely as to the balance; I give and bequeath said annual income or annuity of one thousand dollars clear of all taxes as aforesaid, unto my son Frank T.

And with reference to said trust fund, I vest in my said son Joseph D. Hoopes, as trustee, full power and authority to retain on account of the principal thereof such investments as I may have at the time of my death so long as he in his absolute discretion may deem it advisable to do so; or should he deem it wise to sell and dispose of any such security or securities as I may leave, I authorize and empower him to do so, and to invest, reinvest and change the investments of the whole trust fund as in his judgment may seem wise, without any obligation to confine his investments to what are known in law as "Legal Investment for Trustees", and without liability for errors of judgment in making investment of said trust fund.
     And the said annuity shall be paid to my Frank T. Hoopes at least in semi-annual payments, and shall not be assignable by him, nor shall it be subject to attachment levy, execution or any other process at law at the hands of his creditors or any other person or persons.
     Lastly, I name, constitute and appoint my said son Joseph D. Hoopes, executor of this my will; and I authorize and empower him to sell any and all real estate of which I may die seized, either at public or private sale, for such price or prices as he may deem best, and to execute and deliver good and sufficient deed or deeds for the same to the purchaser or purchasers thereof, without any liability on the part of said purchaser or purchasers to see to the application of the purchase money.
     In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and seal this 26 day of February A.D. 1921.

     "John Cornog was reared on his father's farm, received his education in the old subscription schools of Pennsylvania, and then engaged in the marble business near Downingtown, which he followed for a number of years. During that time he resided in Chester valley, so as to be convenient to his work, and shipped large quantities of marble to Philadelphia. He furnished all the stone used in the construction of the celebrated Girard college of that city. When he retired from the stone and marble business, he engaged in farming and iron manufacturing, which he has followed ever since. His farm lies near Downingtown, and his iron plant is situated seven miles from that borough, on Brandywine creek, where he employs a force of one hundred men, and manufactures iron for rolling mill purposes.
     "John Cornog was united in marriage with Eleanor Van Leer, and to their union was born a family of children, among whom were: George, now engaged in the hotel business in Philadelphia; Henry and Ferdinand, the latter now deceased.
