Petition 9-2-1806 to the Tennessee General Assembly
Inhabitants of Grainger County wish to modify an act passed to compel the Registers and Rangers of various counties to hold court at their Court Houses. “The said office is one of high importance to the public, yet the fees of office are so inconsiderable as not to authorize a person comfortably settled on a farm in the country to remove to town to attend to the duties of said office.” Petitioners ask permission for the Register and Ranger of Grainger County “to hold his office at any place in the county.”
