Crittenden County Petition 1854

Any document that identifies where a person lived, whether it is state, town or precinct, is a valuable document. The following petition identifes a number of men and the precinct where they lived. The document was found among loose county court papers, Crittenden County clerk's office, Marion, Kentucky.

We the Undersigned Voters of Crittenden County Would Respectfully Represent to the Hon. County Court of said County tht whereas we live remote from the place of Voting in our respective precincts and Much More Convenient to the County site We therefore ask that your Honor would so chang us as to enable us to vote at the town of Marion and we will ever pray &c May 4th 1854.
