Petition #20686401


James Burk is the guardian of Joseph R., Louiza E., and Archibald C. Crutchfield, the orphan children of the late George Crutchfield. Their estate consists of slaves, bonds, and Confederate seven thirty notes. "Owing to the high rate of State and Confederate taxes; and high prices of tuition, clothing and board,” the income of the estate is insufficient to support and educate the children. Burk asks permission to use $1500 of the estate's principal "for their Support, maintenance and education."

Result: Granted.
