Lot 71    

Cherokee County, Georgia Land Lottery Deeds, 1830s
5/26/2011 - ONLINE Books, Maps & Autographs
Lot of 2 corresponding partially printed documents, in pursuance of the State of Georgia's 1831 land lottery act, which followed the passage of President Andrew Jackson's Indian Removal Act in 1830. Georgia was the only state to distribute former Indian lands by lottery, and although the Cherokee had officially ceded the land, General Winfield Scott was called to the area in the summer of 1838 to expel those remaining, resulting in what would later be known as the Trail of Tears. The first document is ink dated July 1, 1843, granting Turner Bowdon (also spelled Bowden) of Monroe County 40 acres in Cherokee County, with verso registration at the Secretary of State's office dated August 8, 1943, and attached by ribbon with the impressed wax and paper Seal of Georgia bearing the original seal date of 1799. The corresponding survey document shows a diagram of a 40 acre plot and the date of the original land survey, May 1832, with appropriate inked notations specifying its location, and the signatures of state officials.

Condition:  
Toning, light foxing, and partial separation along some fold lines, reinforced with tape on verso.
