Richmond Co. GA Wills and Estates


Richmond County Wills and Estates



Richmond County Court HouseRichmond County Court House, Augusta, Georgia. Richmond County was formed in 1777 from St. Paul's Parish. The county seat is Augusta. One should search Richmond and Columbia records as they overlapped. Wrightsboro records are found in Richmond County as well as in Columbia County. Some of their wills are recorded in this will book. Thus, here is one place to find Quakers. 

Maps were scanned in such a manner as to provide details for locating creeks, branches, rivers, lakes, churches, schools and cemeteries. This will enable you to better locate the old homeplace using the description from old non-specific deeds. Also, a convenience in locating both private and public cemeteries in the area.

Hall Co. GA Wills, Estates, Genealogy

Hall County Wills and Estates



Hall CountyGainesville storeGainesville storeGainesville storeGenealogists should research the Cobb, Cherokee, Floyd, Hall and Forsyth County records for ancestors in this section of Georgia, as many families travelled together, intermarried, etc. Hall County was created in 1818 from lands ceded by the Cherokee Indians on July 8, 1817 in the Treaty of the Cherokee Agency. Additional Cherokee lands were ceded to Georgia on Feb. 27, 1819 in the Treaty of Washington which included the western portions of Habersham and Hall counties. In 1820 a land lottery was held for lucky drawyers, which granted 250 acres of land. It was named for Lyman Hall (of Connecticut), one of Georgia's three signers of the Declaration of Independence.
