Hancock Co. GA Genealogy: Images of Wills and Estates




Hancock County, Georgia Wills and Estates



Powelton Baptist Church Sparta, Georgia Sparta, Georgia Sparta, Georgia Glen Mary Plantation Map of Hancock County Genealogists 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.

Habersham Co. GA Ancestors: Images of (old) 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.
