Jasper County Land Lottery

Jasper County 1827 Land Lottery List

generously compiled and transcribed by Nancy Mann. 

Thanks Nancy!!

THIS IS THE JASPER COUNTY REGISTRATION LIST FOR THE 1827 GEORGIA LAND LOTTERY. REGISTRATION WAS HELD WITHIN TWO MONTHS OF THE PASSAGE OF THE LAND ACT OF 7 DEC 1824. (THE JASPER COUNTY REGISTRATION WAS FILED 3 SEP 1825). THE BOOK HAS TORN PAGES AND IS DIFFICULT TO READ IN PLACES - THOSE SPOTS HAVE BEEN NOTED.

 Because of the qualifications, you may be able to determine the wife of a deceased male (the orphan children are registered as 'Orphans of John' and generally speaking there is a widow of the same surname immediately prior).

THE REQUIREMENTS WERE: U.S. CITIZEN, INHABITANT OF THE STATE OF GEORGIA FOR THREE YEARS IMMEDIATELY PRIOR TO 1 JAN 1827.

REASONS A PERSON COULD NOT DRAW: HE/SHE WAS A WINNER IN A PREVIOUS LOTTERY (SEE EXCEPTIONS); REFUSED TO SERVE IN MILITARY; CONVICT SERVING TIME

QUALIFICATION AND NUMBER OF DRAWS:
1 DRAW - WHITE MALE OVER AGE 18
1 DRAW - EVERY WIDOW
1 DRAW - FAMILY OF ORPHANS UNDER 18 WITH FATHER DEAD
1 DRAW - FAMILY OF 1-2 ORPHANS (APPLIED IN THE DISTRICT OF THE ELDEST ORPHAN OR THE GUARDIAN - SEEMS TO IMPLY BOTH PARENTS DEAD)
1 DRAW - MALE OR UNMARRIED FEMALE IDIOT, LUNATIC, INSANE, BLIND, OR DEAF AND DUMB, 10-18 YEARS OLD
2 DRAWS - WHITE MALE OVER 18 WITH WIFE AND/OR LEGITIMATE MALE CHILD(REN) UNDER 18 OR UNMARRIED FEMALE CHILD(REN)
2 DRAWS - FAMILY OR MORE THAN 3 ORPHANS (APPLIED IN THE DISTRICT OF THE ELDEST ORPHAN OR THE GUARDIAN - SEEMS TO IMPLY BOTH PARENTS DEAD)
SPECIAL EXCEPTIONS:
1 EXTRA DRAW - WIDOW OF HUSBAND KILLED/DIED IN WARS WITH GREAT BRITAIN OR INDIANS OR ON THE RETURN MARCH HOME
1 EXTRA DRAW - ORPHAN WHOSE FATHER KILLED/DIED IN WARS WITH GREAT BRITAIN OR INDIANS OR ON THE RETURN MARCH HOME
1 EXTRA DRAW - MAN DISABLED IN WARS WITH GREAT BRITAIN OR INDIANS
2 EXTRA DRAWS - REVOLUTIONARY WAR VETERAN WHO HAD NOT DRAWN A LOT FOR SERVICE IN THE 1821 LOTTERY, EVEN IF HE WAS A PREVIOUS WINNER IN OTHER LOTTERIES
1 EXTRA DRAW - REVOLUTIONARY WAR VETERAN WHO HAD DRAWN A LOT FOR SERVICE IN THE 1821 LOTTERY
1 EXTRA DRAW - REVOLUTIONARY WAR VETERAN'S WIDOW

* ANYONE WHO HAD WON PREVIOUSLY AS A MEMBER OF A FAMILY OF ORPHANS BUT WAS 18 OR OLDER COULD HAVE ONE DRAW; THE REMAINING ORPHANS UNDER 18 HAD ONE DRAW AS A FAMILY
* CHILDREN OF CONVICTS WERE TREATED AS ORPHANS
* ILLEGITIMATE CHILDREN WERE TREATED AS ORPHANS
* A WIFE OF A HUSBAND THREE YEARS ABSENT WAS TREATED AS A WIDOW, CHILDREN AS ORPHANS

THE BOOKS WERE COMPILED WITH ONE OR TWO LETTERS ON A PAGE, NAMES ADDED AS THEY REGISTERED. THIS HELPED TO IDENTIFY AT LEAST THE BEGINNING LETTER OF SOME OF THE NAMES WHERE PAGES WERE TORN.
