in Jersey Co, IL. This Robert Irwin must have known or was related to Samuel
Lynn Irwin or his parents. They lived in close proximity in North Carolina at
about the same time. Also the Worsham family which married into this family was
living on Rocky River (where Samuel L. Irwin's father and grandfather had
property). Robert Irwin lived in Rowan Co, which split into Iredell Co. NC in
1783. It is likely that Alexander is a brother of Bennet Washam." On 29

vs. Sally & William Warsham: Alexander Warsham died intestate prior to
1860, the owner of land in controversy, leaving as his children and heirs in
law the pltf Nancy, Alex Warsham Junr & _ Warsham, also a widow, Sally, who
had ? in the premises. After the death of Alex the father, Alex Warsham the son
& one of the heirs at law of Alex Warsham Senr, died having a last will and
testament, duly admitted to probate, in which he demised all his estate, real
?, to his mother Sally for life & at her death, ? to his sister Nancy, the
pltf. Nancy (do not know who this is) the mother is dead. When this state of
fact, the question submitted is what interest has Nancy in the land which
descends from her father Alex Warsham Senr, as foresaid, & under the will
of her brother Alex'n Junr. I am of the opinion & do decide that Nancy the
pltf is entitled to one third thereof as one of the heirs of her father, &
to another third under the will of Alex Warsham Junr. Therefore the pltf is
entitled to two thirds of the proceeds of the sale of said property & Wm
& Sally Warsham, who are the children of _ Warsham decd are entitled to the
other third of the proceeds. W. P. Byrum Referee."
