February, 1862 Term of the County Court

The February Term of the County Court, was held on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday of last week. But little business of public interest is transacted in this court.

The Will of Matthias Sturm, Sen., was presented, proved, and ordered to be recorded. Nicholas Sturm and Henry S. Sturm, Executors.

William C. Redding was appointed guardian of Mortimer Marshall, and Finley McDonald, of Hector Fraser.

The case of Administrators of the estate of John Adams, deceased, vs. Simon V. Addis and John J. Boyd, was dismissed by plaintiffs.

A petition was presented praying for leave to prove the contents of the Will of Eunice Miner, which has been lost or destroyed. Leave granted, proof taken, and cause continued.

Letters of Administration were granted to David L. Emery on the estate of Joseph Potter, deceased.

This, we believe, is the second term at which our new Judge, McCance, has presided. Should he be as popular in that capacity as in the performance of his duties as Justice of the Peace, our citizens will have no cause for complaint.
