Filed under: 1854, census, school

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.

Various & Sundry Warrants, Etc., 1935-1936

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.
