County Clerk of Court Connie Sumner took historical memorabilia to the library Sunday afternoon which enhanced her friendly verbal presentation to the Treutlen County Historical Society. Members and visitors were impressed by the new technology being used in court nowadays. Having served many years as deputy to Buddy Rogers, Sumner has been well versed with the old ways and was very instrumental in adapting local records to the computer, making them more accessible at home and in other counties.
She brought the old jury box which was last used in 1990, still bearing the documentation signed by Judge Carlton Warnock. She showed examples of old property records and prints from the computer records. The county legal organ, The Soperton News, of 1919, the first year of operation of the county, was studied closely by the members, too.
President Larry Braddy led the business session. Treasurer Juanita Youmans gave a report and accepted dues. Museum Curator Barbara Simons also reported.
