Bryant Austin Jr. (Esquire) died in 1842. He indicated daughters in his will but did not name them there. The following abstracts of records of the Stanly Co. NC Court of Pleas & Quarter Sessions indicates names of guardian appointment for the daughters and one son who were under age (minors) at the time.
"1845 November Session page 183 - John Griffin appointed Guardian of LUCY Austin, SARAH Austin, NICY Austin, and ALVIRA Austin, orphans of Bryant Austin, deceased, gave bond of $1000 with Thomas Rowland and Daniel Lefler as securities."
"1850 May Session page183: John Griffin guardian of SARAH, CALVIN, REBECCA and NICY AUSTIN, renewed his bond of $500, Alexander Brooks and Andrew Hunnycutt, securities."
"1850 May Session page 183: RITTY Austin brought into court and bound to Ambrose Lents, entered bond."
Alvira Austin may or could be the same person as Rilla Austin, Ritty Austin and Retta Austin.
