1903- Guardians and Estate Administrators
Most of these have a standard “duty statement” about turning in an inventory, paying debts, etc. attached to them. Each listing also includes the names of men who are willing to serve as sureties and in many cases they are the same men for each estate. So for our purposes this morning I am only listing the name of the guardian and the orphans they were assigned or the administrator and of which estate. If you need more information or a copy of the complete listing please let me know.
