By J. M. Bounds Deputy and

Joe F. Stewart, Clk.

At this day it appearing to the satisfaction of the Court that the necessary and legal notices according to an order of this Court, that a guardian of the Person of JOHN PHILLIPS would be appointed at the next succeeding Term of this Court, has been given, it is therefore ordered by the Court, that JONATHAN PHILIPS father of the said JOHN PHILIPS, be, and he is hereby appointed Guardian of the Person of the said JOHN PHILIPS, upon his compliance with the Law in such case made and provided--and that Letters of Guardianship issue accordingly.

 

At this day appears PERRY P. COLLOM, who, it appears, has been served with a notice in accordance with a previous order of this court, to appear and choose a guardian both of this person and of his Estate and makes choice of JAMES R. McBRIDE for such Guardian.

 

It is therefore ordered that the said JAMES R. McBRIDE be and he is hereby appointed guardian both of his person of his Estate and that Letters of Guardianship be issued to said McBRIDE upon his giving Bond and taking the oath of office according to Law in such case made and provided.

 

At this day appears JOHN FITZHUGH, Administrator of GEORGE McPHERSON, deceased and files his petition, stating that there is a demand against the State of Texas in favor of said McPHERSON for his having served in the Ranging service of the late Republic of Texas, and supporting the same by affidavit, and praying that the Court would…

LEWIS and GEORGE WHITE be and they are hereby appointed commissioners, whose duty it is made to proceed to make partition and Division of the Real Estate belonging to the said ELIZA BATES which is situated in the County of Collin and State of Texas, according to the Statutes in such case made and proved and made their report at the next regular Term of this Court for the Transaction of Probate business.

It appears to the satisfaction of the Court that KING S. CUSTER, Admr. of the Estates of BENJAMIN THOMPSON deceased and JOSHUA E.
