Livingston County, Kentucky Guardians 1864

A guardian was appointed when a person was unable to act for himself or was under the age of 21 years. At the age of 14, a minor could choose his own guardian. If under the age of 14, the county court appointed the guardian. To guarantee the faithful performance of his duties, the guardian was required to post bond with a surety.  The following information has been abstracted from Livingston County Guardian Bond Book C (1863-1878) and Livingston County Court Order Book M.
