Richard Justice has been very hard to find information on. He put an extra “rd” at the end of his name but the back of the receipt is clearly labeled “Richard Justice Receit”. I had a hard time finding him at all in the census records, family trees, and mentions on the Justice Genforum. In 1790 there were 4 Justice families living in Rutherford County, NC: Amos, Jared, Thomas Sr. and Thomas Jr.  From what I have found so far Amos, Jared and Thomas Jr. are all sons of Thomas Sr. Perhaps Richard comes from this line. I’m going to keep this blog post short and sweet for now but I will continue to update it as I find information.

If you have additional information on Richard Justice, please leave a comment below.

About the Logan Project: I possess a box of 170 documents passed down 6 generations in the Logan family that originate from John Logan (1775-1841) of Rutherford County, NC. These documents are mainly receipts that show the various business and legal dealings of many different families from Rutherford County, NC. I will be posting these documents on this blog in chronological order. The scanned images of these documents are the copyright of Jonathan Medford. Do not redistribute these documents for the purpose of commercial gain without his expressed written permission.
