Measles during the Revolutionary War - Franklin Co. GA Wills and Estates - #genealogy - #georgiapioneers

Measles during the Revolutionary War
By Jeannette Holland Austin
Jeannette Holland Austin
Epidemic diseases were serious issues during the Revolutionary War, particularly in New England where the population experienced many outbreaks of diphtheria, scarlet fever, measles and whooping cough. William Aaron enlisted in the 10th Virginia Line from Amherst County, Virginia and marched to headquarters at Bowbrook, New Jersey; thence over the mountain where he came down with measles and was sent to a hospital in New Jersey or Pennsylvania. However, upon rejoining his regiment in Germantown, Pennsylvania, he suffered a relapse and was put in the White Horse Hospital near Philadelphia. Despite the measles, Aaron completed three years of service in the war before making his home in Franklin County. 


Franklin County Georgia Wills and Estates

Carnesville, GeorgiaFranklin was created in 1784 and named for Benjamin Franklin. The original territory was ceded by the Cherokees in the Treaty of Long Swamp in 1782 and by the Creeks at the Treaty of Augusta in 1783. At that time it included all of Barrow and Jackson Counties and portions of Oconee, Clarke, Madison,Banks, Hart, Stephens, Gwinnett, Hall and Habersham counties, as well as the northwestern corner of South Carolina (present-day Pickens, Oconee and Anderson counties). Researchers should also research these South Carolina counties where many of the first residents of Franklin were located. The court house was constructed in 1788.This land was among the last land in Georgia to be distributed under the headright system. In 1789 the headright system passed from state to county government, and the state began to grant hugh tracts of land to speculators. These policies ended with the Pine Barrens Scandal and the Yazoo Land Fraud. of 1795-1796. In 1803, the headright system was replaced by the 1803 land lottery. County business was conducted in the home of Warren Philpot in (Sweet) Gum Log on the Tugaloo. George Walton, signer of the Declaration of Independence, was the first chief justice. In 1788 a courthouse was approved by the state legislature but was not built until 1794. It was constructed on the old John Mullins' Ford on the Tugaloo River. Later, in 1806 a courthouse was completed in downtown Carnesville. Franklin Springs was a popular stop with early visitors and by 1800 a fledgling tourist industry of sorts began to develop, although the land was still remote. A popular tavern and resort was Traveller's Rest. When Carnesville was established in 1811 and became the county seat, another court house was built there in 1826, adjacent to the old one. This building was torn down to make way for a new court house in 1906. No wills or estates exist for this county at the Franklin County Court House prior to 1899. The early wills and deeds are probably located at the local historical society in Carnesville.
