Frederick Rieves
Tenant in possession


Note: When a fraudulent draw was suspected during one of Georgia’s land lotteries an informer could raise the issue in superior court. If correct, the informer received one-half of the lot in question with the other half going to “the several county academies of this State”. The “tenant in possession” was not necessarily the person perpetuating the fraud, and may have been an innocent buyer from the original drawer.
