Michael Wagner was named as a guardian for Solomon, Mary and Joseph Miller after their father, Peter, died in 1847.(What about Elizabeth, Catharine & Sarah J.?, they were the youngest)?

The land records are confusing to me.Wonder why Joseph sold land to Delilah?I haven't looked these up yet.Something else to do next summer.
Thank you very much for your help.I would appreciate it if you find anything else about this family to let me know.Joseph had nine siblings, and I've been trying to locate anything I can find about all of them.Joseph's father, Peter, died when the children were young, as did Solomon.Solomon's wife died before he did so the children were orphans but managed to live by themselves.My grandfather and his two older sisters raised the younger ones after their father and brother were killed in a saw mill explosion in 1877.My grandfather lived with us several years, and if he hadn't told me stories about this, perhaps I would not have pursued this "hobby"
