She Was Trouble in Life And Provided for Trouble in Death

New York hotel magnate Leona Helmsley left $12 million for the upkeep of her Maltese terrier, Trouble. However, after the will was contested, the dog was left with only $2 million. That’s still more than two of her four grandchildren, who were left with nothing.

James Bowman, from Vermont, died in 1891, after his wife and two daughters passed away.  As a firm believer in reincarnation, Bowman instructed that his 21-room mansion be maintained through a specific amount of money designated for that purpose.  In addition, he specified that each night dinner must be prepared in case the family came back on an empty stomach.
The money ran out in 1950, before the return of the family.
