Rhea County, Tennessee Circuit Court Jurors, 1815 - 1860

$10.00

 

This listing of the various Jurors for the Circuit Court from 1815 through 1860 was taken from the minutes of the Circuit Court. In this listing there are obvious mis-spelled names, but they are copied just as they are found to preserve the original list. Attendance was mandatory when called, and unless the Court excused a juror, he was fined up to $25.00. Jurors were paid for each day they attended, and vouchers were issued to be presented to the County Trustee for payment.
