Revolutionary War Pensions to Learn More about Historical Events - Tattnall Co. GA Wills, Estates - #genealogy - #georgiapioneers

Jeannette Holland Austin Revolutionary Pension to Learn More about Historical Events

By Jeannette Holland Austin

John Sharp of Tattnall County was at the siege of Savannah under General McIntosh, and at Fort Morris when Colonel John McIntosh responded to a demand to surrender with the defiant words "Come and take it!" In his pension, Sharp stated that he was at the battle of White house in Liberty County. He must have meant that he was involved in the skirmish surrounding Fort Morris. The details of the battles of the Revolutionary War Pensions deserve to be researched in order to clarify the service of the soldier.


Tattnall County Probate Records

Twin Rivers Plantation Tattnall County was created from Montgomery County on Dec. 5, 1801 and was named for Josiah Tattnall, Jr. who gained popularity in helping to repeal the infamous Yazoo Act, later filling the term of U. S. Senator, James Jackson. Later, parts of Tattnall County were used to help create Toombs County (1905) and Candler and Evans counties (1914). The county seat is Reidsville.
