DISCUSSIONEdit

The following data is based on the summary of Russell County Court records provided on the Russell County GenWeb site. The data covers the period from 1786 to 1791, and represents the earliest Court Records for Russell County.

These data have been processed in several ways to arrive at the information displayed here. Names have been standardized to eliminate clearly redundant names (e.g., "Whorton vs Wharton", typographical or reading errors "Mary" misread as "Hary", etc. As another example, "James Watts Crunk" is almost certainly the same person as "James Walls Crunk"; these and similar entries have been combined under the single name "James Watts Crunk". This may have resulted in some degree of inadvertant lumping of similar names used in entries for fundamentally (but unrcognized) distinct individuals. In some cases similar names were left with separate entries because it seemed possibly that though the names were similar they might reflect distinct individuals; this may have resulted in a failure to combine similar entries for what might actually be one and the same individual. Entries for some individuals whose given name or surname could not be determined, have been eliminated from this summary. In some cases the given name was given only as an initial, for example "P. Porter". In this instance the record almost certainly stands for "Patrick Porter". It is not always obvious which individual is meant when an initial is used. As a result, such entries have been excluded from the tabulations.

SIGNIFICANCEEdit

There are 681 males in this tabulation. Of those, 52 persons account for 50% of the entries recorded. The average number of entries per person is just 6.8 entries. The median number of entries per person is just 2 entries. This indicates that most persons appear in these records very infrequently. It may also be inferred from this that many persons NEVER appear in these particular records. Those that appear here do so for many reasons, including a) they played a role in the county governance, b) they were private citizens who became involved in court actions and legal disputes, c) they transgressed the laws of the time, etc. Most of those who appear frequently in these records were members of the county governance. Some appeared frequently because they were involved in numerous civil suits. The majority (56%) of persons listed here are found on only one or two occassions within the court records. Persons who were not involved in the county and community governance, were not litigious, and were law abiding members of the community, would be much less likely to show up in these records. Persons who lived in the area for only a short period of time would also be less likely to appear in these records. The number of such "cryptic citizens" is a matter of debate.

This can be used to gain some idea of the civic role people played in the community. Of course, an even better idea may be gained by reading the actual court records involving a given individual. In this regard, it should be kept in mind that the names shown here are composites of the names appearing in the records. Name variants need to be checked for each individual. A further table is planned to show such variants in actual use.
