1832. Two documents tied by white ribbon and medallion. Lot 135, Fifth District, First section, Cherokee County (now Gilmer), 40 acres, “3rd quality O & H (oak & hickory) land” Drawn by A. F. Sherwood of Bibb County in the center of the state, probably near Macon. Signed by the surveyor general James Butts and by Georgia Governor George Town. No printer shown for the survey. The attached deed behind the survey document was executed in 1850, signed by Georgia Governor J. M. Patton along the left edge. No printer shown. Both documents are particularly and unusually clean, with the exception of foxing directly related to the medallion when the document was folded and stored over the centuries. The document does not contain the word “Gold” though it was clearly a gold lottery lot with a 40 acre parcel. Gilmer County was one of the gold counties where significant gold discoveries were made.
