Monroe County was created on May 15, 1821 by an Act of the General Assembly after Creek Indians ceded lands between the Ocmulgee and Flint rivers on Jan. 8, 1821 in the first Treaty of Indian Springs. The land was istributed by the 1821 land lottery and named for James Monroe, President of the US. Later, portions of Monroe County were used to create the following counties: Bibb and Pike in 1822; Butts in 1825 and Lamar in 1920. Many families who lived in Bibb County also resided in Monroe.

It is not too difficult to Find your Cherokee Ancestors in Georgia


If you believe that you have Cherokee ancestry, it is a good idea to do some research to find out!  The Cherokees in Georgia were a productive Nation and played a prominent part in the economy. They were farmers, and evidence of this is found throughout Hall, Gwinnett, Paulding, Jackson, Walton and Cobb Counties. Also, the evidence of many old trails still exist today. For example, the McIntosh trail near Brooks, Georgia in Fayette County. It is a paved road. One has to examine the landscape, searching for old mounds, creeks, etc.  In Paulding County there is the 12-Mile Creek, which is a stretch of land where families resided.  Arrows are found all along that creek. Some Cherokee families have been traced on Georgia Pioneers   Also available is the following:

Cherokee and Creek Indian Records

  • An alphabetical Miscellaneous database name listing of Ugeechees, Creeks, Cherokees and Choctaws found in early records in Georgia. Some of these notations came from the records of Indian traders, such as Mr. Hawkins.

Habersham Co. GA Geneaogy: Wills and Estates


Habersham County Wills and Estates



Lake Burton Lake Burton Lake Burton Lake Burton After the Creeks and Cherokees were removed from Georgia, a land lottery was held for the purpose of drawing land. In Habersham, the draw was for 250 and 490 acres. Many settlers came from Virginia, Maryland and North Carolina. Ancestor Researchers should also search the records in Rabun, Banks, White and Cherokee Counties. Thus, Habersham County was created in 1818 and was named for Joseph Habersham, Revolutionary War Soldier and US Postmaster General, a direct descendant of the prominent James Habersham, first settler to Savannah. It lies in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in North East Georgia. The first white inhabitants inhabited lands which came from the Indian cessions of 1818 and 1819. They settled along the banks of the county's four major rivers, the Chattahoochee, Soque, Tallulah, and Tugaloo. When gold was discovered in northeast Georgia, this resulted in the Cherokee removal of 1838. Parts of the original county lands were given to Banks, Cherokee, Lumpkin, Rabun, Stephens, and White counties, decreasing Habersham County to 278 square miles.
