Perry G. Holderby, a minor heir of Richard Holderby, deceased, over the age of fourteen 
years, praying the court for a guardian to be appointed for him, and also at the same 
time presents the petition of D. G. W. Magness praying the court to appoint a guardian 
for David Holderby, Henry Holderby, Eliza Holderby, and Richard A. Holderby, minor heirs 
of said Richard Holderby, deceased, under the age of fourteen years and that said 
Perry G. Holderby having made a choice of said Morgan Holderby as his guardian and the 
said Morgan Holderby being in court and willing to accept said guardianship.  It is 
therefore ordered by the court that said Perry G. Holderby, David Holderby, Henry E. 
Holderby, Eliza Holderby, and Richard A. Holderby, by his entering into Bond and Security
in the sum of $500 for the faithful performance of his duties as such guardian and
