In the matter of the Guardianship of Allen C. Girton a minor
Jacob W. Girton, Guardian

            Comes now Jacob W. Girton guardian of Allen C. Girton a minor and represents and shows to the Court that said ward has a personal estate of probably $300.00 which is in the hands of  Warren Fateley  as administrator of the estate of  David A. Fateley  grandfather of said ward, and that the same will be turned over to this guardian in a short time.
            That the rental value of said wards real estate is of the probable value yearly of $37.50, that he has received no rents from said wards real estate up to this time. That said ward resides with his father this guardian at his home on Washington township in Shelby County Indiana.
            Said petitioner further represents and shows to the Court that his said ward is the owner in fee simple of the undivided Two Twenty Sevenths (2/27) part in value of the following described real estate, situate in Shelby county Indiana, towit:

The East half of the North West quarter of Section Thirty (30) in township Eleven (11) North in range Seven (7) East, containing Eighty (80) acres more or less. That said wards interest in said real estate is of the probable value of $700.00; that said ward became the owner of said real estate as follows; That his Grandfather David A. Fateley died intestate in Shelby County Indiana, leaving his widow and three children, that this wards mother Carrie F. Girton was one of the daughters of the deceased, that his said mother died intestate in Shelby county Indiana, leaving a husband, widower Jacob W. Girton and two sons and that his said ward Allen C. Girton is one of said sons, whereby he became and is the owner of the undivided 2/27 part in value of said real estate.
            Said petitioner shows to the Court that all of the other owners of said real estate are selling their interest in said real estate, and he believes it will be to the best advantage of his said ward for him to join with said owners in selling said real estate, and he further believes that it will be better for his wards interest and estate to loan said money for said ward, which he intends to do if said petition be granted as prayed for.
            Said petitioner further shows to the Court that he believes said real estate can be sold at a better advantage for his ward at private sale without notice for cash.
He therefore prays the Court for an order directing him to sell said real estate, at private sale, without notice, for not less that the full appraised value thereof and for all cash on the day of sale, and he asks for such other orders as the Court may deem proper in the premises.
