If the executor, administrator, guardian, master, or special commissioner who was ordered to make a sale or lease, shall die, resign, or be removed before doing it, such sale or lease may be made by the successor of such executor, administrator, guardian, master, or commissioner, or by any person appointed by the court or the chancellor in vacation to make it. In case of a death, resignation or removal of an executor, administrator, guardian, master, or commissioner, after making a sale, and before its report or confirmation, or before a conveyance of the title, in case of the sale of land, the court shall ascertain the facts, and, if satisfied that the sale ought to be confirmed, shall make a decree confirming it, and order a conveyance, if land was sold, to be made to the purchaser, either by the successor in the administration or guardianship of the person who made the sale, or by a master or commissioner appointed for that purpose; and such conveyance shall have the same effect to vest the title in the person to whom it is made, as if it had been made and delivered by the person who made the sale.
