  14. On application of James B. Darland, and the Court being satisfied that John Darland, Samuel Darland, George Darland, Mary Darland, Willoam L. Darland, & Martin Darland, heirs of Isaac Darland deceased are minors & residents of said County, and the said James B. Darland having filed his bond in the sum of five hundred dollars, conditioned according to law with John Abbit his security therein approved by the court Therefore ordered that the said James B. Darland be and he is hereby appointed Guardian for the persons and property of the said minor heirs -- Whereupon the said James B. Darland was duly sworn in open court truly and faithfully to perform the trusts devolving on him as such Guardian.
  15. Petition of James B. Darland of the persons and estate of George Darland, WIlliam S. Darland and Martin Darland, heirs of Isaac Darland deceased sheweth that their desends to the said heirs from their said father the following tract of land, to wit: The east half of the southeast quarter of section 11 in township 16 N of range 7 W, containing eighty acres: that John Darland and Samuel Darland who were his wards are now of age and have sold their interest in said land; and that Mary Darland another heir for whom he was guardian had married one Jordan Dodge; that there were in all eight heirs who have each an equal interest and a widow who has dower, in said tract of land, and consequently that the interest of his wards being so small, is almost valueless. The widow and most of the other heirs having sold their interest, the greatest portion of said land is now in the hands of strangers. In view of these facts the guardian is of opinion as are also the other relatives of his wards that it is their decided interest that their interest in said land should be sold and the proceeds vested in wild lands in the state if Illinois where himself as well and his wards reside. He has found a purchaser to whom he is of opinion he can sell the interest of said heirs in the said tract of land for its full appraised value of $210. He therefore prays the court to order him to sell said lands at private sale, at the appraised value, and on such terms as may be deemed best in order that the proceeds may be vested in wild lands in the state of Illinois.
