Photo of Ordinary's Certificate for Curtis Wynn, 9 years old (and therefore illegal). The Deputy Clerk told me ""That was likely a clerical error."" but I found five of these ""errors"" issued to children under 10 years old, one for a child aged 8. (The latter was later marked 'Void' but none of the rest were.) Rolly's teacher told me the family had moved, but that the boy was a mere baby with a lisp. The issuing of the certificates is very unbusinesslike. (See Vaughn's Report, Georgia. The Ordinary said, ""I'm a practical man! The cotton mill people are the poorest paid workers in the country. They have to put their children into the mills."" Location: [Columbus?], Georgia.
