If you would like to volunteer, please message me on Facebook. I have been getting more contributions from people who do not blog. Sometimes, like Christine, they send a transcription, which makes creating a blog post quite easy. Other times, they just send the images, which then need to be transcribed into a blog post.
On 10 April 1834 Lawrence Bankston of Wilkes County, Georgia, made his mark on his last will and testament which was witnessed by three men. In his will he disposed of his property, land and slaves. After testimony in court by one of the witnesses, Mr. Bankston's will was recorded on 31 January 1845.
