How were "stewards" of Lee County poorhouse appointed? Are the appointments recorded in court records? What were the criteria for living at the poorhouse (other than being poor; e.g. orphans, etc)? Has anything been published about poorhouses in Lee County? Were court orders published when a person was admitted (or committed) to the poorhouse? Any mention of Lee County poorhouses in published materials will be of interest. In 1850, John Graham was steward of the poorhouse. In 1870, it was Andrew Johnson. Thanks for your help!
