When a father died leaving property to be inherited by his children, the Court appointed guardians to look after the children until they reached age fourteen. At age fourteen, a child could come into Court and choose their own guardian. Guardians were required to post bond and have someone agree to be security for the bond. If you haven't already done so, check the NC State Archives, Raleigh, for a Lincoln County will for Alexander Gilliland, will written 18 Sept. 1795, probated at January Sessions of Lincoln County, 1796. There is also an estate record at the Archives for Alexander Gilliland, 1805 in Lincoln Co. original estates. Email me directly if you wish more info on ordering documents from NC Archives.
