Notes / Description: 

Additional Plaintiff: Annie Mauer. Both defendants are minors and represented by their Next Friend Joseph Ruohs. The defendants state that their deceased father, before dying, asked Ruohs to administer his estate and take custody of his daughters. Plaintiffs accuse Keeny of unjustly filing for guardianship. Plaintiffs state Keeny is unsuited to be guardian due in part to his lack of belief in the Bible.
