WW WWW U II MM Vol. 23 EAST JORDAN. MICHIGAN, FRIDAY, JANUARY 17, 1919. No. 3 - rr v x s II I I i . Judge Corrcll Makes Report Annual Report of Probate Court Work for the Year 1918. i ' Th wftrlr nt th Prnhntf Hniirt for the year 1918, in the county of Charle voix, briefly told is as follows. Number of testate estates begun, eleven. Intestate estate estates twenty five. Number of petitions filed praying that the patient be admitted to the Traverse City State Hospital for the insane, fourteen. An order was made admitting eleven of the patients to said hospital, and an order dismissing the petition in three of the cases. There has been conveyed to the University Hospital at Ann Arbor, for treatment, under act 267, of the Public Acts of 1915, three adult persons, and to the sume Hospital for treatment six child ren under act 274 of Public Acts of 1913. The only difference between the treat ment of adults and children is that the expense of children is borne by the State and that of adults is paid by the county in which the person resides. Seven children have been adopted into Charlevoix county homes during the year. Seven guardians appointed for minors. One person committed to the Home for the Feeble Minded and Epi lsptic at Lapeer, Michigan, and one sent to The Farm Colony at Wahjamega, Mich. Twenty-four estates have been closed during the year, six of which were subject to Inheritance Tax. The total amount of said tax on the several estates being $354. Gl. T a .all atfantinn in tVo Vi o nrrn in A uun ban auvuuvu iw " ""' fc sentiment and practice in regard to probating estates. I refer to the Deter mination of Legal Heirs, sometimes called "The Short method of probating an estate." In the year 1913 there was only four cases for determination of heirs; in the year 1914 three and in 1918 ten cases in this court. The cases in which this method was employed in the year 1913 and 1914 were where the narfips had died, ownint? real estate in r ' the county, and leaving no debts or obligations, and no steps were taken to probate the estate at the time of death. Later the heirs want to sell the real estate, and that the purchaser may know that he has a good title, or at least has a deed of all parties claiming an interest in the lands, a judicial determination of the heirs is necessary. In the year just closed this metnod of probating was employed immediately after the death of the owners, and in cases involving a large amount of nronertv. This was done bv the advice I I n - " of attorneys, which I do not think they would have advised ten years ago. I will say further this can be done only in cases where there are no debt or obligations outstanding against the deceased, and the heirs or parties in interest can agree. JUVENILE DIVISION. Thirty children have been before this court during the year. Fifteen of either sex. Three girls have been committed to the Industrial School at Adrian, Mich., while no boys have been sent to the Industrial school at Lansing during. the same period. Nine depen dent children have been committed to the State Public School at Coldwater, four of whom never reached there by reason of their being found homes in this county through the efforts of the County Agent and friends interested in their welfare. Four dependent and neglected children have received financial assistance by order of this court. SERVETUS A. CORK ELL Judge of Probate.
