  Burial Notes:

At one time, I had recorded the burial place as "Gainey Home, Cedar Creek Rd, Cumberland Co". Now the tombstone is at Adams Cemetery, 5755 Shipman Rd, Hope Mills, Cumberland Co. Is this the same place?

12. Property: Division of Property after Death, 13 Jan 1900, Cumberland County, North Carolina, United States. 937,950 On 18 Dec 1899, Walter E. Haywood and W. Oscar Haywood filed a Petition for Partition against Edgar M. Haywood, David E. Haywood, and Alice O. Haywood (all minors). The petitioners say that the land that had been inherited from the estates of W. J. D. Haywood and V. A. Haywood was held by all five Haywood heirs as tenants in common (meaning that they all share all the property) and the two petitioners want the lands split up so they are held in severalty, meaning that each person would be the sole owner of some portion of the land. The petition asks that a guardian be appointed for the minors, and that commissioners be appointed to divide the lands into equal shares. The petition is filed in Superior Court of Cumberland County.

In January 1900, Noel Gainey as Guardian of Edgar M. Haywood, David. E. Haywood, and Alice O. Haywood, all minors, responded to the petition submitted by Walter E. Haywood and W. Oscar Haywood. He cites the will of V. A. Haywood to say that the petitioners are not entitled to have the land divided equally at this time, since the will specified that the real estate would be left in charge of W. Oscar Haywood and Walter E. Haywood, who should keep the farm up and support the younger children from the proceeds, and then when the children are 21 years old, the estate should be equally divided. However, Gainey claims that W. Oscar Haywood qualified as executor of the will, but never filed an inventory or accounts, and is now out of state in Georgia. He also claims that W. Oscar Haywood and Walter E. Haywood took possession of the estate, and thereafter cut timber off the land but did not provide any accounting, Thus, he claims they have failed to follow the terms of the will, and he asks that the petition be denied and further that they be held to an accounting and than someone be appointed to take charge of the estate and cause the terms of the will to be enforced.

On 13 Jan 1900, the court issued its decision and assigned commissioners to divide the lands into equal shares and allot the petitioners and defendants one share each in severalty.
