Old Man Held Incompetent

Court Takes Charge of Affairs of Jesse W. Walling

Jesse W. Walling, whose children sought to have him placed in the care of a guardian, alleging he was incompetent to handle his business, had his affairs placed Tuesday in the hands of the Union Trust company by Judge H.L. Kennan in the superior court.

J.R. Walling, J.H. Walling and Mrs. Lizzie Elbert, the children, all ranchers, and each closely approaching middle age, were witnesses, as to the old man’s incapacity for business. The estate largely consists of farm lands. It was set up in the petition that the old man intended selling out and going to southern California for the winter.
