Soldiers of War of 1812 and Confederate Army - Hancock Co. Wills, Estates #georgiapioneers

Jeannette Holland Austin
Soldiers in War of 1812 and Confederate Army
By Jeannette Holland Austin

John Marshall, a native of Virginia, settled settled in Hancock County, Georgia the early part of the 19th century. He was a Primitive Baptist preacher and a soldier in the war of 1812. His son, John, enlisted in the War Between the States, engaged in some hard-fought bloody battles, viz: Seven Pines, Cold Harbor, Chancellorsville, James Island, Ocean Pond, Weldon, Kurston and Bentonville. He was severely wounded in the battle of Cold Harbor, was in the hospital two months but spent three months at home recovering before returning to the army.

He was again wounded at the Battle of Bentonville. When the war ended he resumed farming, and bought his first land, a small farm in 1867, to which he has added. Ref: Memoirs of Georgia, Vol. I.

Hancock County, Georgia Wills and Estates

Powelton Baptist Church Sparta, Georgia 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.
