Webinar Description

 “…Ordered by the Court that Cullen E. Sugg oversee the road in the room of Josiah Lawrence and that he with the following hands to wit. Josiah Lawrence, Matthew Williams, Benjamin Batts, Jesse Herring, William Deloach, Sugg Fort, Elias Fort, Hardy Grisard, Elias Lawrence, William Watson, George James, Alexander Gooch and Jesse Andrews, James Lawrence and all other hands residing within the bounds of said road keep said road in repair according to law…” [Robertson County Tennessee Minute Book 7, p 422]

What do these men have in common? Learning to recognize and understand information contained in county court minute books and order books along with other types of routine court records will require effort to determine the appropriate law regarding the entry and the prevailing tradition of the community. In order to have a better understanding of the laws in place regarding the construction and maintenance of roads, we should review the state laws in place at the time.
