Change Bills

October 15, 1862 -- Series K
Only the 50 denomination was issued for Series K, which is a very scarce issue. No notes from this series are listed in Garland's book. The signature on the note for the superintendent was changed to Robert Hayne Rowland (October 22, 1841 - November 25,1869), who was the son of the superintendent, John Sharpe Rowland. He purchased land in Cass County (now Bartow), Georgia in 1839 and built a sizeable plantation of over 2,500 acres which was called "Etowah Valley".
