In Response To: Alonzo Slater obit documents role as Page ()
Milledgeville was the State Capitol from 1804-1868, so Mr. Slater would have been a youth, no more than 10-12 years of age during his term as a "Page".
With the newspaper clipping and the other document in your possession I would look at other Georgia governmental records in the 1865-1868 time period.
The newspaper clipping certainly is a solid piece of information in verifying Alonzo Slater as a Page in the Georgia Legislature when Milledgeville was the State Capitol.
Best Wishes for a successful search,
The Atlanta Constitution (1881-1945);
