The "Time Machine" Adventure - Emanuel Co. Wills, Estates, Marriages - #genealogy - #georgiapioneers

Jeannette Holland AustinThe "Time Machine" Adventure
By Jeannette Holland Austin

Did you ever feel that you would like a "time machine" to step back into the past? Well, you can have this psychologically. And that is by tracing your own heritage, especially with American emigrants because so little has changed in the terrain. As a matter of fact, we probably step upon the same earth, travel the same trails and view the same rolling hills and seashores. Perhaps, a little excavation into the soil will reveal some of their trash. The secret is to begin at the old home place, if you can find it. In this wonderful age, technical advances are making genealogy more of a virtual reality. Digital maps reveal hidden archaeology such as hidden shapes and landscapes at Stonehenge while minimal maps reveal stunning images of the landscape which define old cornfields and cotton crops, forests, roads and trails as a starter. Why even the standard county map legends point us to cemeteries, churches and dirt roads. Inside these
"time machine" vehicles, we can find the community where our families once resided with a visual of the footings of old buildings and houses. Actually, the site of the church and the old portion of its cemetery is the compass to more. It is a matter of imagination. The old deeds provide measurements and further description of what the old places looked like as well as the names of neighbors. Old wills, estates, vouchers, receipts and inventories are replete with details of family members and neighbors. For example, who purchased the kitchen furniture? The "time machine" works best with all of the information which you can discover in county records as well as census, church, bibles, cemeteries, and the like. Now, a little research into local history and the problems of the day provide the emotional aspects of community life.

Emanuel County Wills, Estates, Marriages

Guyton, Georgia Emanuel County was created in 1812 from Bulloch and Montgomery counties. The county was named for Georgia Governor David Emanuel (1744-1810) Subsequently, portions of Emanuel County were used to create the following counties: Johnson (1858), Jenkins and Toombs (1905), Candler (1914), and Treutlen (1918). The first commissioners in 1812 were: Edward Lane, Francis Pugh, Needham Cox, Eli Whitdon, and Uriah Anderson and in 1813 Jesse Mezzle and Archibald Culberth. The Emanuel County Courthouse has been destroyed by fire five times -- in 1841, 1855, 1857, 1919, and 1938. The county records included here are the earliest surviving.
