     On 24 February 1851, James E. Patillo, Jno H. Bullock and Wm Burroughs were bound in the sum of $8,000 as executors and administrators of the estate of William Burroughs, deceased, at Warren County, North Carolina.5

     In October 1851, his son, Basil et al (heirs of the deceased) petitioned the court to sell the land of the deceased. The Court was appointed guardian of Sally, Ellen, Harriet, and John Burrows. I don't know to whom the following children belong: Warren Watkins, guardian of Mary, Agnes, and Fanny Watkins. Presumably Agnes must have married a Watkins and both are deceased.4
