Summary:The will of Gertrude Kensett Vanderhoef, daughter of Thomas Kensett and Gertrude W. Brown was signed on July 24, 1906 and later "cancelled" on February 17, 1908. Presumably the will was voided because of the death of Gertrude W. Elder, her mother, shortly after the first will was completed. In the will, Mrs. Vanderhoef bequeathed her estate to her mother. Jewelry and silver items were left to her husband and his family members. Any children were to be wards of a cousin, John Kensett Kellogg. Thomas F. Balfe of Newburgh, New York, was named executor.
