Re: Looking For Franklin Co. Deed Book Information

Gwen,

A couple of more questions, if you don't mind. Will I be looking for 2 different types of documents? The land grant application(s) made by John Barber and the actual grant issued by the state of Georgia? I assume the grant index will tell me what grant book to go to to find the grant application and will the actual grant that was issued be recorded there also?

Have you seen some of these types of documents? If so, what type of information would one expect to find on these documents? Would the application tell where the applicant was living at the time of application? Also, would it list the applicants qualifications for requesting the land grant? I hope I am not bothering you with these questions, but you have been very helpful and this information may open some big doors in my research. Thanks again.

Benny
