Description

List of persons who were subject to work on the public road between the Bryant Bridge over the Aucilla River and Waukeenah in Jefferson County. In the 19th and early 20th centuries, counties relied on the labor of their own citizens to maintain public roadways. This system became untenable after more complex paved road surfaces became the standard. The terms of this service were specified by state law.
