(A later recording of this list of destitute citizens indicates that the State

of Georgia sent an amount of money to aid Union County’s surviving families of

soldiers and those disabled from their wounds.  The contribution to Union County

enabled the county courts to give to each person who was considered destitute,

and others added later, the whopping sum of 50 cents each.)

NOTE:  Additions in parentheses are my own.  I have made every effort to

transcribe these records as exactly as humanly possible, though I am sure I have

made some transcription errors, due to the Clerk of Court’s atrocious

handwriting.  For those, I apologize.
