A Gift for you

Tracing ancestors is more than just charts of names. And it is not a picture of a leaf, or tree, but rather real people who existed.  Many people trace their ancestry to patriots of the American Revolution and to the first Colonists to America.  But there is one thing certain: somewhere, someone immigrated to this country and began writing the story of their lives.  It all begins in county records, where the first land grant was acquired or deed filed of record.  Then taxes were paid and recorded on tax digests.  Sons and daughters were given in marriage and these certificates filed.  Later on, people died, leaving estates to be dealt with.  Wills, inventories, sales, receipts and annual returns surrounded this process, all filed in the county court house.  It is where the genealogist begins to unravel the details of a story somewhat inconsistent with family legends and tales. It is the truth.  In essence, it is a gift bequeathed to all of the heirs going forward.  By that, I mean that the eyes of your descendants will have privy to the information hundreds of years into the future.  For this reason, it is also your story.

Perhaps now is a good time to discover the details of the dreams of your ancestor , the love
which he bore his children., and the heritage bequeathed to you.

Images of Hancock Co. GA Wills, Inventories, Returns, Guardianships, Sales. These Books were never indexed! See the Names!


Hancock County, Georgia Wills and Estates

Powelton Baptist ChurchSparta, GeorgiaGenealogists should research Hancock and Elbert Counties for families who settled together and inter-married. The scanned images of Wills and Estates not previously indexed (and thus ignored by most researchers) have been properly indicated and may be viewed by simply clicking on the link. If you did not previously have the time to search every page, it would be wise to use this site to find your lost generations of ancestors. Hancock was created in 1793 from Greene and Washington Counties, Hancock County. The county borders Baldwin, Glascock, Greene, Putnam (Oconee River), Taliaferro, Washington and Warren (Ogeechee River), It was named after John Hancock, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Sparta is the county seat. Early settlers were General H. Mitchell, Bolling Hall, Charles Abercrombie, General Adams, Henry Graybill, Joseph Bryan, William Rees, Jonathan Adams, John Montgomery, Jacob Dennis, Archibald Smith, T. Holt, Thomas Raines, James Bishop, Isham Rees, M. Martin, R. Clarke, R. Shipp, F. Tucker, L. Barnes, W. Wyley, William Saunders, James Thomas, Jesse Pope, Jonas Shivers, William Hardwick, L. Tatum, Robert Moreland and William Pentecost. Hancock County should always be researched with Greene.

The Hancock County Wills and Estates (inventories, annual returns, guardianships, vouchers, sales, etc.) were bound together in the same volumes for specific time periods. The records contain a great detal of probate information about the possessions of the deceased as well as how their estates were distributed to the heirs. Such details are of my interest to the genealogist assembling family puzzles. No index is included in any volume and I have never seen any published. Therefore, scanning these images helps the researcher find ancestors otherwise unknown and provide a great new resource to all genealogists.

Cobb County Wills and Estates


Pine Run Grist Mill Cobb County was formed in 1832 from Cherokee County and named in honor of Thomas Willis Cobb, U.S. representative, U. S.Senator and Supreme Court Judge who subsequently named the the city of Marietta after his wife. For a number of years white traders settlers encroached on Indian lands. Upon the signing of the 1832 Treaty to remove the Cherokees, settlers flooded the territory. The Cherokees were farmers and not surprisingly, not all Cherokees emigrated to Oklahoma and Kansas. Some of them obtained permission to remain in Cobb County which is reflected in the Dawes Rolls when people from Cobb, Forsyth, Lumpkin and Gilmer Counties made application before the Dawes Commission to prove Indian ancestry. Such proof was necessary in order to obtain free land in Oklahoma. Indian trails ran from the Alabama Road North through Bartow County and across the "Shallow Ford" in the Chattahoochee. The Second Georgia Land Lottery of 1832 parceled out land to settlement and the first towns of Marietta, Sweet Water, Buffalo Fish and Big Shanty. Big Shanty is remembered for sheltering Atlantans during the Battle of Atlanta which made the mad rush by railroad before General Sherman took the city. The railroad started its construction in 1836 when the State of Georgia began purchasing the right-of-way to build from the Tennessee River to the Chattahoochee River. In 1845 track was laid from Marthasville to Marietta with a stop over for water at Moon's Station in Kennesaw. During the War Between the States the earliest court house records were torched by Sherman. Earliest settlers were: Cloud, Lemon, Collins, Guess, King, etc.

NOTE: The Cobb County records have not been microfilmed and are not found at the Georgia State Archives.

Georgia Newspapers Extracted for Obituaries 1740-1935

Georgia Obituaries by Jeannette Holland Austin Anyone searching for their Georgia family should search this alphabetical database listing of deaths. It references birth and death dates, spouses,children and other pertinent data of interest to the genealogist, and the newspaper is referenced. The State of Georgia did not maintain death certificates until 1919. However, many old newspapers did, and these events were thoroughly mixed and scattered throughout each day's paper. In most cases, you will be able to locate the article by ordering microfilm from the vast newspaper collection at the University of Georgia. Some of these death inscriptions were discovered during the 1960's in old court houses, newspaper offices and libraries and were extracted by Jeannette Holland Austin. Most of them did not survive. That makes this extraction a valuable resource. Newspaper Listing included in Georgia Obituaries 1740-ca 1935 available to members of Georgia Pioneers

Wilkes County Probate Records

Wilkes County Court HouseWilkes County was created in 1777 from ceded lands of Cherokee and Creek Indians. People who resided in Wilkes County are also found in Warren and Oglethorpe Counties. Between 1790 and 1854, the legislature took land from Wilkes County to form Elbert County (1790), Oglethorpe County (1793), and Lincoln County (1796), and to help form Warren County (1793) and Taliaferro County (1825). The county seat is Washington, Georgia. Lincoln County should always be researched along with Wilkes. Many of the first settlers came from Virginia and North Carolina to take up the ceded lands (from the Indians) during the late 1700's. Early Settlers: John Heard, William Rasberry, James Gray, David Montgomery, John Marks, Bernard Zimmerman, George Bailey, William Mathis, Solomon Ellis and others.
