Gordon Brothers near the Creek Agency #genealogy #georgiapioneers

Three Gordon Brothers of Crawford County GA

1823 Crawford County Map. Three Gordon brothers settled in Crawford County and purchased large tracts of land adjoining one another. James Gordon built a brick home above a spring which was later owned by his grandson. Thomas Gordon located across the creek just above the spring where the Indians had a council cabin (a double log house) on the present Lafayette Pike. This must be Beaverdam Creek near the site of the old Creek Agency. It is also the site where the young men of the section came together during the Civil War and organized a company of 110 men with Clark Gordon as captain. At the close of the war Clark Gordon was promoted to the rank of Colonel. The brothers had a worthy father, Thomas Gordon, who served during the Revolutionary War as a private in the 6th Virginia Regiment.  #genealogy #georgiapioneers
