Petition of Jones Co Mississippi, 1822
Record Group 47 / Legislative Papers, Box 17

To the honourable the General Assembly of the State of Mississippi to convene at the town of Jackson on the fourth Monday in December 1822. The Petitioners of the undersigned Citizens of Covington County respectfully sheweth that your petitioners labour under intolerable grievances: For that whereas, the said County of Covington is of the most inconvenient and unreasonable extent - comprehending within its extended boundaries an expanse of county amply sufficient for two constitutional counties. We believe that the area designated by the constitution is, generally, the most eligible extent for a county:
- But that your petitioners should be necessitated to suffer the many inconveniences resulting from a residence in a county the enlarged boundaries of which include a tract of country of more than double that extent, is a burthen to which we cannot submit with silence. It is a duty we owe to ourselves to present our grievance before you. We sensibly feel these grievances. And a removal of them would be of unspeakable advantage to the county. All parts of the county most cordially concur with the measure. It is not the selfish request of a few interested individuals. It is the prayer of a county which is severely suffering innumerable disadvantages and hardships arising from the extensive dimensions of our County.

We therefore pray your honourable body to remove our grievance by passing a law to divide our said county and form a new county of a part thereof. And we your Petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
