Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of a deed of conveyance, 1833, from John Lee to George H. Maner, both of Screven County. The deed is for Lot 535, 18th District, 2nd Sec. in Cherokee County, containing 40 acres; the Lot is a "gold lot," in that it was one of the 40-acre lots sold in lotteries in Cherokee County. During the early 19th century, gold was discovered in Cherokee County, leading to a gold rush on the county.
