Loyalists Escape to Barbados #genealogy #history #revolutionarywar #georgiapioneers

Escape of Loyalists after Revolutionary War to Barbados

BarbadosBarbados, a British owned island of planters of sugar cane served as an for Loyalists avoiding treason and hanging. As soon as the war ended, while the British prepared to depart Savannah, "Mad Anthony" Johnson was en route from North Carolina to Savannah in the hopes of acquiring the confiscated lands of the Loyalists. General Johnson had made some unfortunate tactical decisions during the war and his reputation suffered because of it. A List of Traitors was quickly compiled of some of the most prominent persons of the age. Robert Baillie, James Butler, Philip Delegal, Samuel Douglas, Thomas Flemming, John Fox, Donald Frazer, Thomas Gibbons, John Graham, Lachlan McGillivray and John Mullryne were numbered among those owning large plantations. The intention of the General was to establish order to the city and gain a prize for himself. But it did not work out that way, because some of the more successful generals, such as Nathaniel Greene, were awarded the confiscated estates. Not wishing to be hanged for traitors, the departure of the Loyalists from Charleston and Savannah was a hasty retreat into Northern Florida, North Providence and Barbados. Generally speaking, the Loyalists North of Charleston and in the New England States escaped into Halifax, Nova Scotia and other areas of the Canadian province.

Irishman Beheaded by Tories #revolutionarywar #genealogy #georgiapioneers

Irishman Beheaded by Tories

British SoldiersWilliam Barron Sr. was born in Ireland and emigrated to the American colonies, and settled in Warren County, Georgia. However, British soldiers were not known to be nice. Especially, when during the Revolutionary War, a group of Tories beheaded Barron and putting his head on a pole, paraded it around Augusta for three weeks. It occurred during the battle of Augusta in September of 1780. While he was lying wounded on the battlefield during a flag of truce while the dead were being removed for burial. A Tory by the name of Grayson found him and removed him to an old plaza and as soon as the Tories learned that it was Captain Barron, a large sum of money was offered for his head. An Indian did the deed. There were many horrors which occurred at the hands of british soldiers by citizens and rebels as well. The only way to learn about the hardships enduring during those years of fighting for freedom is to read old pension records of Revolutionary War soldiers. It is quite interesting to read their own words, as they describe the battles and events of the war. One begins to truly appreciate the price which our ancestors paid for the American Constitution.

McDuffie County Wills, Estates, Church Records, Maps, 1870 Residents

Thomson, Georgia

McDuffie County is the home of the first Quaker settlement in Georgia, called Wrightsboro. However, this region originally fell into Richmond and Columbia Counties and those records should also be researched for quaker ancestors. McDuffie County was created from Columbia and Warren counties on Oct. 18, 1870 and was named for George McDuffie (1790-1851), the former South Carolina Governor, Congressman, and U.S. Senator. Thomson is the county seat and the location of the old Quaker Village known as Wrightsboro (formerly Columbia County, now McDuffie). The "Friends" came from North Carolina in 1770 and settled along Germany Creek. Early Settlers: Judge E. S. Harrison, Dr. William Andrew Martin, Charles Washington Matthews, Dr. William Marion Pitts and Colonel John Allen Wilkerson.
