  The 1831 Voters and Can They Be Identified More
based on an original transcription by Renee' Gore

I think it would be an interesting project to identify these men and learn more about them. As I find notes or remember records, I will add notes here. If you want to contribute please send your email to mflp@aol.com and identify them by  1831vote - (their number) .   All notes are by Donna unless otherwise specified.

Harnage, Ambrose
List of White men with Indian wives  Harnage, Ambrose lived Long Swamp
Prescribed Oath List  wife 5 children
1830 Gwinnett p. 374

It is interesting that the election was to be held at Ambrose Harnage's house but he didn't vote. Tate, Pickens County, GA was originally called Harnageville, after Ambrose Harnage, in whose house the early court was held.

	The wives of Benjamin Brackett- Lock Langley (see #116) and Mige Brackett 
- claim they are sisters and daughters of Mr. Hubbard whose wife was 
a Wilkenson and a native of the Cherokee Nation, this statement is 
corroborated by persons of high standing who have long been acquainted 
with Cherokee affairs, I find however that their claim has been in 
disputed by some persons but from the best information I can get they 
have hitherto enjoyed the benefits of the Treaty.
