Bellah had died about (1834?) 1934 in Newton Co. where he was probley then living. His two oldest children being over 14 years of age came into the courts as minor orphans and chose Alexander Pharr as their guardian. The courts then made the appointment and Alexander Pharr serving in this capacity until the youngest child was of age.
