From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    first-born, of the tribe of Manasseh, and of the family of
    Gilead; died in the wilderness. Having left no sons, his
    daughters, concerned lest their father's name should be "done
    away from among his family," made an appeal to Moses, who, by
    divine direction, appointed it as "a statute of judgment" in
    Israel that daughters should inherit their father's portion when
    no sons were left (Num. 27:1-11). But that the possession of
    Zelophehad might not pass away in the year of jubilee from the
    tribe to which he belonged, it was ordained by Moses that his
    daughters should not marry any one out of their father's tribe;
    and this afterwards became a general law (Num. 36).
