For those interested, I ran across this article this weekend.
From the "Southern Recorder" - Sep. 10, 1861.
"GEORGIA, LAURENS COUNTY.
Whereas Francis M. Clark has made applica-
tion to me for letters of administration upon the
estate of Ambrose Porter, late of said county, de-
These are therefore to cite and admonish all and
singular, the next of kin and creditors of said de-
ceased, to file their objections on or before the first
Monday in October next to show cause why said
letters should not be granted to said applicant.
Witness my hand and official signature, this
26th August, 1861.
