Date of Reestablishment[edit]

This is potentially confusing. For the record, the Colbert County website [1] says:

It was not reestablished until 24 February 1870...

History of Alabama and Dictionary of Alabama Biography by Thomas McAdory Owen (published 1921, public domain) says:

However, the legislature which convened in 1869, by an act of December 9th, authorized a vote to be taken in the county of Franklin to determine whether or not the ordinance referred to should be repealed. The election was held on January 6, 1870, and resulted in the reestablishment of the county, whereupon the governor issued his proclamation declaring the result; and under an act of February 4, 1870, J. C. Goodlove, Thomas Buchanan, Robert Matlock and James Abernathy were appointed commissioners to manage the county. Subsequently an act was passed February 18, 1870 directing the restoration of Franklin to Colbert County of all of the books, records, papers, documents or other property originally belonging to the latter. Tuscumbia was again named as the county seat, March 1, 1870 and an election ordered held the first Monday in March that year, at which the voters were to choose between Tuscumbia and Cherokee for the permanent seat of justice. The election resulted in the selection of the former.

It's not clear whether or not these dates are contradictory. --Joseph Hewes (talk) 06:25, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
