      "At a Court Began and Held in the North East of New River in and for the County of Onslow the First Tuesday in July 1756."

      [Note by compiler: The first Tuesday in July 1756 was 6 July 1756.]

      Item 9. "Sophia Sumner relict to Francis Sumner dec'd moves for letters of administration of the estate of sd. Summer, granted she giving bond and security in the sum of 100 pds. proc. money. Ordered that she have letters of administration."

      (Onslow County Court Minutes 1755 - 1765 Vol 3, pg 13 & 14)

      Same Court - October 1757:

      Item 2. "Sophia Sumner admin. and widow to Francis Sumner dec'd. comes into court and gives security for the children's part of the sd. estate being 5 pds., 18 shillings proc to each of the seven orphans.

      Ordered the clerk see that the bonds are executed and filed." (My file reflects the "seven orphans" to be Joseph, Ezikeal, George (a TORY later on!!!!), Hezukiah, Samuel, Benjamin and Francis Jr.)
