To get a modern understanding of it you would substitute the term Ranger, or Special Forces. So far as I know the spy records are just a part of the Georgia militia records. I have an interest in a company of spies raised in Pulaski and Wilkinson counties during the First Creek War, but as yet I've had no opportunity to do any documentary research on them...
