Lee County Genealogy, Wills, Estates


Lee County

Lee County was created by an act of the Georgia General Assembly on December 11, 1826 and included the territory acquired from the Creek Indians lying between the Flint and Chattahoochee Rivers, immediately above the old line of Early County and known as the first section, shall form one county to be called Lee. Originally, Lee County comprised the subsequently created counties of Quitman, Randolph, Stewart, Sumter, Terrell and Webster, parts of Schley, Chattahoochee, Macon, Clay, and Marion. The 1827 land lottery distributed lands in Lee County, but recipients are to be found in any of the above counties because Lee was so large a territory. The first settlers to Lee County goes to the heart of lands offered in the land lotteries after the evacuation of the Lower Creek Indians. Although many families drew this land, not all of them chose to venture into South Georgia and build a homestead.
