Series Information
(Road Record)

Series Description
Proceedings of the circuit court and and its predecessor, the county court, regarding petitions to open, alter, or close public roads, as mandated by Ch. 89, Acts of 1818. The levy court, replaced by the board of county commissioners in 1851, retained concurrent power to consider petitions to alter roads and held full authority over petitions for private roads. All responsibility for roads was transferred to the county commissioners by Ch. 220, Acts of 1853. Documents for each case contain the petition, sometimes objection statements, court orders, commissioners return including surveys and plats, damage awards to landowners, and ratification of the return. Entries are arranged chronologically by recording date. The court sent copies or abstracts of the proceedings to the levy court, and later the county commissioners. The county government then arranged and paid for the required road work and compensation to landowners. The levy court and the county commissioners transcribed vital information, but not the plat, into (Road Book) in series C872 and C873. Rather than use separate books, the court clerk recorded the road proceedings in land record volumes, usually at the end or beginning, but did not provide references in the land record indexes. The road records are also available on film in series CM508 and CM507. For ways to access these documents through related records, see the descriptions for (Road Descriptions) in series C867 and C868 and (Road Book) in series C872 and C873. For concurrent and later records, see (Road Record) in series C2307 and C2308. The Archives will create an electronic finding aid from the records themselves.
