Poe and Nisbet for the use of James A. Nisbet vs. Wm T. Wilson, Trustee and
Hez'k Thompson and his wife Hester
It appearing to the Court from the return of the Sheriff that Wiliam T.
Wilson, one of the defendants in the above stated
case is not to be found in the county of Bibb. And it also appearing that
said Wilson resides beyond the limits of this State.
It is therefore ordered that service be perfected upon the said Wilson by
publication in a public gazette in Macon once a
molnth for 4 months. Sept 13, 1848

DIED. On the 19th ult at his residence in Gwinnett County, Absalom Martin,
in the 4th (typo?) year of age. The deceased
had been for the last thirty years a residence of the same place, during
which time his uniform habits of an upright and moral
course of conduct, together with his general gentlemanly deportment, had
established for himself a character of spotless
integrity. No individual in his section of country possessed more warm and
devoted friend, or enjoyed a higher degree of
prosperity. But "in the midst of life we are in death"-- the despoiler came
and with him were blighted all his earthly
prospects forever. He has left an affectionate wife and five small
children, together with a large circle of friends to mourn
their bereavement, but they mourn not "as they who have no hope". He had
never attached himself to any visible church, yet
on his death bed he gave the strongest evidence to his friends around, of a
bright prospect of the rich inheritance of a
blessed immortality beyond the grave.

TAXES. The Tax payers of Bibb will please take notice that the Tax Books
for 1849 are still to be found at the store of
Mr. Daniel F. Clarke, in Cherry Street, where all are invited to call and
settle. The books will be closed on and after the
15th of September... J.B. Grace TCBC

JP A true extract from the Estray Book. Joel W. Mann, C.R.C.
So I asked William Mills (who is so knowledgeable about Georgia research
and especially Houston County) what an ESTRAY BOOK was??   (You're probably
familiar with his many published books on this county.)

Thought you might also be interested in his reply.

>From: "William A. Mills"

 Here is what the
>Encyclopedia Americana (1949 edition) says about Estray:
>ESTRAY: In law, any animal, the subject of property which is found at
>large without ostensible owner in any place other than the land of the
If found on private land, such an animal, in most jurisdictions,
>may be impounded at the cost of the owner.  In some States, the finder of
>an estray may, after due advertisement, sell same at public or private
>sale, and the purchaser will acquire a good title therein. 

The proceeds
>of the sale, after the finder's expenses have been deducted, are as a
>general rule, paid into the town treasury.
Estray accounts deal with stray livestock that take up residence on
someone's property.  When that happens, the owner of the homestead has
the right to sell that livestock if no one comes forth to pay the "room
and board" invested by the homestead owner.  These laws are still on the
book in many parts of GA.

It was necessary to post the intentions of selling this livestock in the

I had suggested to him that  it might be a good way of seeing some "common"
least their names anyway. <<
>Yes, in cases where there is almost no mention of a particular family in
>a county, the Estray Book Docket could yield some hint.  And, most Estray
>Book Dockets are indexed. 

The Houston Co., GA Estray Book Docket covers
>from: 15 Oct 1836 to 7 Jan 1924, is 104 pages long, and has never been
>microfilmed.  These books are usually located in the Probate Court.

I also asked if the appraisers might have any relationship to the person
mentioned, but he indicated these were just appointed by the Court to make
the appraisal  (or set the price) for the future sale.

I would have thought the "finder" could keep the $$....but by the
dictionnary, it was to go to the town.

Has anyone else ever had experience with an Estray Book???
