Thomas MCAdory Owen, 1866-1920, was at one time Head of the Alabama State Dept. of Archives and History together with his wife Marie Bankhead Owen. In An explanatory note to these records Mr. Owen states that he visited Granville County in Dec. 1895 to examine the official records for a genealogy of the Owen and Grant families of Grassy Creek, also the Williams family. In the process, he conceived the idea of preparing a history of the county, and the county clerk placed at his disposal 10 of the old "Minute" and "Record" books prior to 1800. He noted that there were some gaps in the records, particularly from May 9, 1776 to Feb.. 4, 1777, when apparently no court was held, as the pagination was continuous in the Book. He abstracted just about everything, and he listed the documents he did not abstract. This includes wills and inventories, bastardy bonds. (lots of these), apprenticeship indentures, marriage and bonds etc. Some documents that he considered important he copied in full. His notes start in 1746 and most stopped after the Revolution, but he continued the marriage bonds to 1815. The records this book is taken from are as follows: Vol. I, county court minutes, 2 Dec. 1749-4 Dec. 1750 & Record Book 1750-1761; Ibid, Vol. II, 5 March 1750/1-21 Sept. 1759; Ibid, Vol. III, 1759-1767 lost; Ibid, Vol. IV, 3 August 1768-20 July 1770; Ibid, Vol. V, 5 May 1774-3 Feb. 1778; Ibid, Vol. VI, 7 August 1781-6 Aug. 1783; Vol. II, minute & record book 1760-1762; Vol. III, minute & record book 1762-1765; Vol. IV, record book 1765-1772, county court minutes 2 Feb. 1767-3 May 1779, county court minutes 19 July 1769-18 Aug. 1772; Vol. V, minute & record book 4 May 1774-1782; Vol. VI, minute & record book 1782-1785 and 6 Nov. 1781-5 May 1785; Selective Marriages License Bonds, Coroners Inquisitions.… (more)
