Miss Mary M. Barnett is my name and America was discovered by Christopher Columbus - a document found in Elbert County court records



This is not my family, but very a appropriate post for Columbus Day. 

Miss Mary M. Barnett was practicing her penmanship on this paper found while searching Georgia records, at FamilySearch.org; specifically in Elbert County Records, 1790-2002 Court records - Miscellaneous court records - box 13 1790-1900.



Mary M. Barnett's document was found, on page 401, in a  
file marked Settlement with Harris March 31, 1841

Written across the paper is thought to be "H. R. Barnett" and "DEEds."  The middle initial is not legible. In the same file was a Judge H. M. Barnett's application to the estate of Sarah Thorton in January 1855. 


If you had family that lived in Elbert County, you definitely need to check out these "browse only records" at FamilySearch.org. I spent several snow days last year browsing thousands of pages while looking for Hairstons. I found only a few documents, but it was well worth my search!
