Arkansas, Probate Records, 1817-1979, Craighead Probate records, 1909-1927 vol D-E, are online at FamilySearch.

This Bridger entry mentioned J. C. Bridger, guardian of Tracy [Lucy?] and Ula Burrow(s), made 12 April 1909. Bridger and the Burrows mentioned again.

The October 1909 term of court recorded that Bridger, as guardian of the Burrows children, wanted to sell a sewing machine for $3.50 on their behalf.

Bridger's first annual settlement for Burroughs [note different spelling] children.

The Burrow(s) family was living near the Bridger family when the 1900 census was taken.

Eula Burrows married John Jennings in 1917.

I have a slight interest in the Bridger family because Nancy Bridger married one of my collateral ancestors (Isaac Garrett).
