Publication Notice: Court of Ordinary Minutes  1838-1863  for the book, "Hancock County Georgia - Court of Ordinary Minutes 1837-1863" , containing the transcription of two Court of Ordinary books 1837-1853 & 1853 - 1863.

Note from Ada Brantley Wright, granddaughter of James Robertson Brantley:

  • On 25 January 1994 the State of Tennessee designated the portion of U. S. Highway 41 from the corporate city limits of Manchester (in Coffee County) northward to the Rutherford County Line as the "James R. Brantley Memorial Highway". Signs identifying that portion of the highway were posted at the Manchester City limits and at the Rutherford County line. Signs were also added that identified James R. as the owner of Allan F-1 and Roan Allen F-38.
        We just got through with the International Horse Show in Murfreesboro last week where Kitty got her first Blue Ribbon in a major show.

Major research findings, culminating nearly 30 years of research  released on this web site.  Check under Research Study for this report.
