Q "Tc bring together the records of the pest
¥ and to house them in buildings where they will
i be preserved for the use of men living in the
future, a nation must believe in three things.
It must believe in the pest. It must believe
_ in the future. It must, above ell, believe in
Q the capacity ef its people so te learn from the
3 pest that they cen gain in judgment for the
Q creation ef the future."

ii The lpypptppy pf the County é£phiyes_pf_§eprgia is one of a number
}; of guides to historical materials prepared throughout the United States
Y§ by workers on the Historical Records Survey projects of the Work Proj~
.§ ects Administration. The publication herewith presented, the Record
lj Entries of an inventory of the archives of Lee County, is Volume ll of
fi Number 88 of the Georgia series.
f The Historical Records Survey program was undertaken in the winter
3 of 1935-36 for the purpose of providing useful employment to needy uncm-
% ployod historians, lawyers, teachers, and research and clerical workers.
,, In carrying out this objective, the project was organized to compile
§ inventories of historical materials, particularly the unpublished govern-
id mont documents and records which are basic in the administration of local
g governments, and which provide invaluable data for students of political,
T economic, and social history. Up to the present time approximately 2,000
g publications have been issued by the Survey throughout the country. The
Q archival guide herewith presented is intended to meet the requirements of
Q day~to-day administration by the officials of the county, and also thc
Q§ needs of lawyers, businessmen, and other citizens who require facts from
Q the public records for the proper conduct of their affairs. The volume
% is so designed that it can bc used by the historian in his research in
1; unprinted sources in the same way he uses the library card catalog for
j printed sources.
Q The inventories produced by the Historical Records Survey projects
g attempt to do more than give merely a list of records — they attempt fur-
; ther to sketch in tho historical background of the county or other unit
K of government, and to describe precisely and in detail the organization
g and functions of the government agencies whose records they list. The
2 County, town, and other local inventories for the entire country will,
g when completed, constitute an encyclopedia of local government as well
3 as a bibliography of local archives.
g The successful conclusion of the work of the Historical Records
3 Survey projects, oven in a single county, would not be possible without
Q the support of public officials, historical and legal specialists, and
§ many other groups in the community. Their cooperation is gratefully
f acknowledged.
Q The Survey program was organized by Luther H. Evans, who served as
{ Director until March l, l940, when he was succeeded by Sargent B. Child.
Q The Survey operates as a Nation—widc series of locally sponsored projects
f in the Service Division, of which Mrs. Florence Kerr, Assistant Commis-
i sionor, is in charge.

Q The Historical Rcccrds Survey was initiated in Georgia in October
Q 1956, as a unit of a Nati0n~widc program under thc supervision of Dr.
T< Luther H. Evans, National Dircctcr. The project at thc beginning was
E sct up as a part cf thc Federal Writers Project, but functioned thcrc-
-l, under for only a few wccks. The Survey bccamc an independent unit cf
JT Fcdcral Project N0. 1 cn November l, 1936, and cpcrutcd as such until
if scptcmbcr 1, 1939, when thc transfer cf the Survey tc thc status cf u
fi lccally sponsored Stntc~widc prcjcct was cffcctcd.
f Since this is probably thc last volume the Georgia Historical
§ Records Survey will publish before it suspends operations for thc
é duration of thc War, it would scsm appropriate tc list thc pcrscns who
é have bccn head cf thc project sincc it was initiated in this State and
g givc the dates they scrvcdq Dhss Annie Laurie Hill was in charge cf
Q the Survey as Assistant Stats Supervisor under Mrs. Carolyn P. Dillard,
} Statc Supervisor cf thc Federal Writers Project, until November 1956.
l Rmif0rd—J. Wccd was named State Supervisor of the project in November
E 1956 and scrvcd in such capacity until July 1959, nt which time Philip
f Warren was appointed State Supervisor. Mr. Warren was succeeded as
ll Stats Supervisor cf thc project by Frederick S. Hulse 0n October lO,
lg 1940. Dr. Hulse served in this capacity until Juno 8, 1942, at which
Q timc the writer was placed in charge of thc project.
§ with a view to encouraging thc study cf local history in thc
i schools, it was decided tc publish thc Historical Sketch cf Lcc County
i separately as Volume I, this bcck being Volume ll, Record Entries.
F . . . .
S The principal cbjcctivc cf thc Survey in Georgia is tc prepare ccm»
y plete inventories cf thc public archives cf the State and its political
é subdivisions, and tc mukc readily accessible to research studcnts and
X historians this large stcrc of source material. This includes the pub»
l licaticn, not only of inventories cf county archives, but also cf maps,

é Preface  ¥
g Government in Georgia." lt is expected that this book will serve as a jh
Q handbook on the organization, structure, and evolution of county govern- AQ ggi
i ment and records in Georgia, and will make it unnecessary to repeat in ij gif
y each inventory information applicable to.all counties in the State. Tho iw ar;
2 office essays in this inventory are, therefore, lindted to the creation VQ art
Li of the office and its present status, the manner in which it is filled, AQ ave
f the term, and special legislation affecting Lee County. Pending issu- jj bd
Q ance of the volume on county government in Georgia, it is suggested that iff bdi
j the reader consult the Inventory pf the County Apphives pf Georgia, No. p bsn
Q l£@J Muscogee County, for more detailed essays than those found in the Yi Cac
., — present inventory. y. C_H
J The Survey was begun in Lee County in January 1940, and the ini- gi ;?;
f tial field work was completed in December of that year. The work was I, CO;
¥ rechecked during December 1941. For the completeness and accuracy of fi col
p the inventory of the records, as well as the transcriptions of the county p · _·` com
a minutes cited herein, the field workers are responsible. This volume was ti CDH
Q prepared by the Project Technician. The typing and stencil cutting of Eg com
u both Lee County volumes were done by Gertrude B. Lacy and Virginia C. pl Ct.
3 Callaway, and the volumes were mimeographed by Charles E. Cox, Foreman Q; Ctr
ii of the project mimeographing section. t, def
2 The publication of this volume is made possible largely through the Q4 g;§
Q assistance rendered on behalf of Lee County by the Commissioners of Roads if g2g
H and Revenues. The valuable assistance rendered by the Superintendent of if gh;
Schools, the Superior Court Clerk, the Ordinary, and other officials of li Est
2 Lee County is gratefully acknowledged. Acknowledgment is also made for Q  pi_ Gt
’ the aid given by the various workers and officials of the State and l i¤ gp-

· Records are described in entries whose style is formalized to give N
y the following information: Title of record, dates for which available, ,
l quantity, labeling of volumes or containers, information on missing rec- i les:
il y ords or discontinuance, variant titles, description of record contents, jp beer
’ manner of arrangement, indexing, nature of recording, size of volumes or {
i containers, and location. I
»i lcs:
l Titles of Records. The exact titles of records, as they appear on F FUCC
the spine or outside of volumes and record containers, are written in »". in T
solid capitals without parentheses (as in entry l). In the absence of ;% entr
titles, descriptive titles have been assigned, which are written in solid `
l capitals and enclosed in parentheses (as in entry 4). If a record title {
is not ndequately descriptive of the contents of the record, an assigned g COHt

S) @3 explanatory title (or explanatory words), written with initial capitals
S) Z} and enclosed in parentheses, has been added to the exact title (as in
`YG jr entry Bl). lf in a single series the title of a record varies, the
S) RQ current or most recent title is used as the entry title, but title varia-
?€d JE tions are indicated in the title lines, as well as records that have no
·t@ ii title (as in entries 15, 16).
»ad  
’Om ii Dates. All dates used are inclusive. Missing records are indicated
S) d` by broken dates.
;er ,
-0U E Quantity. When two or more typos of containers are considered in a
S) gi single entry, the quantity is shown in chronological order, insofar as
'al i; possible.
)OIl'l  
’V@ g· Labeling. Figures or letters in parentheses, following the number
is) fp of volumes, file boxes, or other type of container, indicate the label-
-0T ip ing. If no labeling is indicated, it may be assumed that there is none.
IGS  
`EG é Discontinuance. Where no statement is made that the record was
SUS { discontinued at the last date shown in the entry, it could not be defi-
llt Q_ nitely established that such was the case. Where no comment is made on
yy) yy the absence of prior, subsequent, or intermediate records, no definite
.5) Q information could be obtained.
.on M
ij Description of Records. The description of the contents of a rec~
_Q ord applies only to the current or most recent record unless change in
p contents is actually shown in the record entry.
IS) ,§d Indexing. All indexes to records, unless otherwise stated, are
Lng 3, Self-cbntained. lf a record has a separate index, the index entry im-
5Gt i mediately follows the record entry whore possible. Cross references are
165 Y given in an entry for a separate index to the record entry or entries it
’nS { Serves; and conversely, cross references are given in a record entry to
. the separate index serving it, or entries where there is more than one
_l separate index.
i Condition of Records. It may be assumed that records are in good
J conditiEH_uHlEsE*btherwisb indicated.
Lve .
Le, ? Dimensions. Dimensions in entries are always given in inches, un-
rec— h IGSS otherwise—indicatcd, and, therefore, the symbol for inches (") has
ss, Qp been omitted.
s or §
`. Location of Records. All records are in the county courthouse un-
§ less otherwise`nbted in the entries. When all or the majority of the
on F records of an office have a common location, the location is indicated
1 r' in the last sentence of the office essay instead of in each individual
,f Q entry.

g of time and with other records for different periods of time. An example tg
g ’ of this type is in entry 89: "lS87~— in Letters of Administration and 3Q
Q Testamentary, entry 90.“ They are also used in all artificial entries — »Q
fj those set up to cover records which must be shown separately under their li
f proper office even though they are kept in files or records desoribed_ if
Q elsewhere in the inventory, as in entry 163; or in those set up for a fj
fr record which is never kept separately but is found in two or more records jj
# of miscellaneous content, such as entry Gl. In both instances the de- Q2
Y scription in the master entry (entry of miscellaneous content) shows the jk
{ title and entry number of the record from which the cross reference is Ti
2 made, as for example, these words in entry 40 do; "Also contains; Coro» if
{ ner's inquests, entry 6l." Dates shown in the description of the master Y
j, entry or entry of miscellaneous content are only for the part or parts lj
Q of the record contained therein, and are shown only when they-vary from Q;
3 those of the master entry. tw
i Separate third-paragraph cross references from entry to entry, and {
g See also references from subject headings or subheadings are used to 3
i show prior, subsequent, or closely related records which are not parts` Q
