In Reply to: look-up 1764 guardianship for Galloway orphans by SMSITTON of 601

I'm not related. Was able to look this up at the NC State Archives.

From the September 6, 1764 New Hanover County Court Minutes: To my eye it reads, "Mr. Thomas Morris and Mr. James Price appointed guardians of Catherine, Thomas, Mathew and Sarah Galloway, Orphans of Th L? Galloway Decsd & proposed Caleb Grainger Esq. Security in the sum of 60 (Great Brtian pounds) ?? money which was approved of ??? of by Mr. Grainger."

I'd be happy to send a pdf of the page to you via email if you'd like. May you can decipher the handwriting that I can't.
