Did you know that a Record is Kept of Paupers?

Chatham County Farm

Georgia Paupers and Widows Database

Court house records usually include the poor house expenses or paupers. Sometimes, you can discover the names of the poor in old newspaper records, usually under the legal posting section, but you really have to dig to find this. The State of Georgia established County Poor Houses which housed paupers and widows. This is an extraction of those records from census records and old newspapers by Georgia Pioneers.
  • Abram Widow's Home, Chatham County, 1860
  • Douglas County Paupers 1871-1890
  • Emanuel County Poor House, 1835 or 1853
  • Savannah Poor House and Hospital, 1850 and 1860
  • The Constitution (newspaper) 1885-1900
