Confederate Records from the Elbert County, Georgia Court of Ordinary, 1890-1932


SKU: 8484 Categories: ,


After the Civil War, the new Georgia state constitution abolished the inferior courts, transferring all of their responsibilities to the county ordinary courts. Unlike in other states, in Georgia the county ordinary court also paid out pension allotments to the Confederate veterans residing in each county. The transcriptions in this book, the second in a series, derive from four volumes of original Confederate pension sources that were microfilmed by the Genealogical Society of Salt Lake City at the Elbert County Court of Ordinary in Elberton in 1960. For the most part, all four volumes consist of pre-printed forms in a tabular format intended to document the pension payments made by the County Ordinary to each veteran or widow. Author Michael Ports has arranged his transcriptions to conform to the sequence in the original manuscripts.
