Jennie filed petition in Dallas County Probate Court for guardianship of her son, Samuel's, estate in
September 1899 (case 2538). Documents state her son was now nine years old and that she was
divorced from his father 31 December 1897 by decree of the 14th Judicial District Court in the state of
Texas, where she was granted custody of her son. She was unable to make bond and asked that the
Texas Trust & Savings Company be made guardian of Samuel's interest. Henry contested the
guardianship of Texas Trust & Savings Company and requested the guardianship, as Samuel's father.
Part of their divorce decree gave Jennie a life estate in the homestead property situated on Ervay Street
in the City of Dallas, Texas and would go to Sam at her death. Henry was providing support and
maintenance of the minor in the sum of $5.00 per week. He felt there was no necessity for appointment
of a guardian for the child as he was and would be providing support of the child.
