Microfilm list for Sparta Ishmaelite and County Courthouse records

We would like to thank Mr. Lee Dickens Jr. for his generous donation of the microfilmed courthouse records.
Mr. Dickens bought the complete set of records from the State of Georgia in 1961 and donated them to the Hancock County Library. 

Both Mr. Dickens and his wife, Francis Peck, are originally from Hancock County.
He practiced law (civil and real estate) in Hancock County from 1948 until 1960.
He then moved his practice to Milledgeville and later retired.  Mr. Dickens is now 93.
