About This Item

Jackson County, FL, 1847. unbound. 1 page, 3.5 x 7.5 inches, Jackson County [Florida], February 5, 1847 -- a probate court receipt acknowledging that "Elijah Bryon, Administrator of William Bryon, received the following property awarded to me by the commissioners appointed by the Hon. Richard H. Long, Judge of Probate, for the County of Jackson, one-fifth of three-hundred and twenty acres of land (undivided) and the following slaves: Mary, Ginny and child, and Jerry valued at $1500 and three-hundred and thirty one dollars and forty-five cents of the other personal property, as my position of said Estate." Signed at the bottom: "Elijah Bryan, guardian for Joseph M. Bryan" and docketed on the bacl: "E. Bryan" and "Richard H. Long, J.P.C." Richard H. Long (1791 - 1865) was appointed by the Territorial Governor in 1833 to complete the land sale between S. Brown and the Apalachicola, Tustenuggee, and Hadjo tribes, treating the Indians fairly. He was a representative to Florida's first Constitutional Convention and later served as Speaker of the House. During the Civil War he rose to the rank of Colonel of a Florida Regiment and saw much action in the field. His body was recently located in a forgotten Confederate cemetery. Elijah H. Long was known for building a 5,200-acre plantation for his mother. The family was well known in Jackson County and, evidently, all were slave owners. One horizontal fold; uniformly toned. Very good condition.<br/><br/>
