The Philomath Presbyterian Church was established ca 1829, its name having been suggested by Alexander Stephens who noted that the residents were supportive of the Reid Academy and had a high regard for education. Hence, "Philopmath", meaning "love of knowledge."

The Plantation Journal of Seaborn Hawks #georgiapioneerscom #gagenealogy

The Plantation Journal of Seaborn Hawks

colonial nailsSeaborn Hawks kept a daily journal for his plantation in Jasper County. In addition to an inventory of medicines such as laudanum, he also maintained a list of eight or more paid workers and the amounts. On February 13, 1855 he noted that it was a rainy day and night. On February 17th he nearly finished planting cotton and nine lambs were sheared. That season he also planted corn along the creek field and elsewhere, sending 9 bushes to the mill. It appears that he had about 500 acres of land, also a number of slaves. Records were always kept on the plantation including such items as promissory notes given by neighbors, money borrowed for crops, expenses of equipment and repairs, and so on. The more costly items were exported from England. When buildings were torn down, lumber was stacked in a heap and inventoried. Also, items such as nails and windows. Croppers shipped goods to Augusta, Savannah and Charleston. This journal is available to members of in the Genealogy Vault

Georgians who went to Alabama

Georgians who went to Alabama

covered wagonAfter the Indians were removed from Georgia about 1833, many settlers moved westward into Alabama. Because they were moving westward, to discover their location in Georgia, the genealogist should search the counties of Meriwether, Murray, Chattooga, Haralson, Heard, Troup, Harris, Muscogee and Stewart Counties. Typical first settlements in Alabama were in the counties of Chambers, Limestone, Cherokee and Randolph Counties.
