Dorchester Puritans

Dorchester, England
About 1755 a congregation of Puritans originally from Dorchester, England who had first migrated to Massachussetts and then South Carolina (and named their towns Dorchester) acquired land grants and came into Georgia.  This was after the Charter was surrendered and the colony was under the ownership of King George. They settled at Midway, Georgia where a thriving farm community existed for many years.  It is a wonderful historical site to visit, as the cemetery contains the graves of all of these people.  Also,
The burial records have been copied and are available to members of Georgia Pioneers under "Colonial".
