Two documents tied by pink ribbon and die struck Georgia medallion. Date of survey August 9, 1832, lot 823, 40 acres (gold lottery), first district, second section, Cherokee County for land of 2nd quality. Two creeks run thorugh this 40 acres. Signed boldly by Georgia Governor Charles J. McDonald on the bottom fold., also signed by Alfred Horton, the Georgia Surveyor General. The form was printed by P. L. Robinson (no city). The lot was drawn by Larkin Milsaps of the Nicole District in Fayette County, probably of Fayetteville, Georgia. This lot is located near the Chattahoochee River, possibly now under Lake Lanier. The second document, attached and behind the first, is the actual grant deed executed in 1841. The original lottery survey is heavily folded with splits along the folds and a few chips. The attendant deed is also heavily folded with some foxing. The foxing on the survey from the medallion is minimal, and the medallion itself is nearly readable. The survey and the deed do not state the word ”gold” anywhere, though the lot is clearly within the gold lottery districts, as evidenced by the Gold Districts map and the fact that the lot is 40 acres in size, the smallest size allotted in the land lotteries specifically designed for the gold lots.
