Forsyth County lies in what was First,  Second,  Third,  and Fourteenth Districts

First Section of Cherokee County    

District 3 - 1296 lots
District 2 - 1276 lots
District 1 - 513 lots

District 14  - 1417  lots

 Many lots in the 1st and 14th and some in the 2nd were fraction lots where they ran up against the Chattahoochee River. All lots except the fractions were 40 acres plus or minus +-.
As these pages grown, they will be split out by section and linked.

Measurements to remember:

40 acres is approximately 1/4 mile by 1/4 mile
a rod = 16.5 feet = 5.5 yards  my abbreviation rds
a chain = 4 rods = 66 feet = 22 yards
a furlong = 40 rods =  660 feet = 220 yards
a mile = 320 rods  = 5280 feet = 1760 yards
