I have posted the delayed birth certificate of Lillie Mae Royals, dated 1961. It can be found on this page: https://hamiltoncountyflorida.wordpress.com/cases-from-the-court-house-archives/delayed-birth-certificate-lillie-mae-royals/
I have posted a School Census from 1854 that I found in the Court House Archives. Unfortunately, I don’t know if it covers all of Hamilton County or just a portion; also, the names are kind of confusing, so it may not be of any use to anyone after all. But just in case, it’s here: School Census, 1854.
I have posted a set of warrants that I found in the old court house archives. All of them were in the same envelope, so I posted them on the same page, but I have listed below the case names.
State of Florida vs. A. West Castleberry. Assault & Batery.
State of Florida vs. O.B. Fowler. Exhibiting Deadly Weapon In a Careless & Angry Manner.
State of Florida vs. Julian Fowler. Indecent & Vulgar Language.
State of Florida vs. Herman Lindsey. Indecent & Vulgar Language.
State of Florida vs. Fossie Payne. Murder.
Please note that they have all been transcribed exactly as they were originally written, meaning that all errors have been transcribed exactly as they appear in the original.
I have posted the appearance bond for O.B. Fowler, dated 1935. Prior to that, he had wielded a pocket knife in an “angry and careless manner” which led to his arrest.
I have posted a file that contains the Notary Commission of C.A. Stephens, dated 1918. This was clearly a big deal, as the paper was very high quality and oversized. I wonder if C.A. Stephens received an original for himself to frame, if he chose?
I have posted a file that contains the bond of Kirby L. Sandlin, dated 1918. It appears that Kirby was involved in some sort of court case and had to post a bond in order to be able to stay out of jail until his court date. However, I have not come across the original warrant to bring him to court. The bond can be found here: https://hamiltoncountyflorida.wordpress.com/cases-from-the-court-house-archives/the-bond-of-kirby-l-sandlin-1918/
I have posted the delayed birth certificate of Clyde Goodbread Wiggins, along with the accompanying verification. It can be found on the “Cases From the Court House Archives” page.
I have posted another case that I pulled from the old archives of the courthouse. George Wood was charged with carrying a concealed weapon and subsequently found guilty. You can find the case here: https://hamiltoncountyflorida.wordpress.com/cases-from-the-court-house-archives/state-of-florida-vs-george-wood-1914/
I recently found a page online through the Florida Historical Legal Documents site that pertains to Hamilton County. It is the incorporation of a place called Jackson Spring, but I have been unable to determine where it is located or find anyone who has ever heard of it. If anyone can offer any information pertaining to this city/spring, please email me at email@example.com.
The transcribed document can be found at this page: https://hamiltoncountyflorida.wordpress.com/jackson-spring/.
