SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE:

The origin of this collection, consisting of only four documents, is unknown. One John Florence is listed as living in Meriwether County in the 1850 census. It is likely, but not certain, that he is the same man named on the documents in this collection. Since these original documents, providing names, dates and locations, might be of value to researchers, a complete personal name index follows the container list.
