      Bagby, John to Martha Saunders 18 Dec. 1822 Joseph Radford, gdn Abraham McElroy

      [This reference to Abraham McElroy being the gdn [guardian] of Martha Saunders is used to show that Jane Radford's children were farmed out to different family members after her death. There is a note in the bond that indicates that Martha has lived in the home of Abraham McElroy for eight (8) years. Abraham McElroy was the husband of Mary Radford a daughter of Benjamin Radford who was a brother to Jane Radford. I can not verify the note about gdn but in looking at the book this type of reference is used rarely.]
