Cox Estate Sued
H. L. Miller, as executor of the will of his mother, Sarah J. Cox, was made the defendant in two suits filed in the superior court last Wednesday by Jas. W. Keys, an attorney for Euphmesenia Popoff, a Russian girl of 19. One action is for $2500 alleged to have been received as the guardian of the plaintiff in 1901 for which she never accounted for either to Judge Angellotti who appointed her guardian or to the plaintiff, the other is for $630 for services rendered as a nurse to Mrs. Cox during the last year of her life. Mrs. Cox was well known in San Rafael where she died last September leaving an estate valued at $120,000, the most of which she bequeathed to her son, the defendant. She was appointed guardian of the plaintiff in 1901 but died without rendering an account of her stewardship or making any provision for the compensation of her ward for the care the latter gave her during a long illness. Her son refuses to allow the claims hence the suit.
