Looking for more information on the marriage and family history of my grandparents, John Henry Taylor and Sara(h) Elizabeth "Bell" Davis. Warren County Lookup shows marriage date as 1/1/1899. Family records indicate Barnett, GA. Want to know if Barnett or surrounding communities would have a newspaper that might have a wedding announcement with more information. Would like to find someone to research this (for a fee or otherwise).
Please contact me.

Looking for information on Bird Iron Works that William Bird owned. He died around Oct. of 1812. It is recorded that his will is one of the longest on record in Warren County. One of his sons was Wilson (an executor of William Bird's will). Any information on Bird Iron Works would be helpful. It was located in Shoals, GA, Warren County. The parents of William would be great if that is available. I cannot seem to get any further back than this.
Thank you for any help.

I have reason to believe that Williamson Winter Bruce (Page 175 Warren County Tax List for 1794) could be either the father or grandfather of my gggrandfather, William Bruce, b. 1789 in GA. Does anyone know the names of his children?

The father of Williamson W. Bruce was a John Bruce and his mother was Judith Townley Warren, both of whom died about 1736 in Charles County, MD. Williamson and his brother Townley would have come to Warren County after that, possibly to live with relatives. My gggrandfather married Joyce Terry in Putnam County in 1819.

Thank you.

I am researching the lost town of Georgetown, once in Warren County, and is located on the Ogeechee River near Mitchell,GA in Glascock County.

"Georgetown: A Lost Town in Warren County:  Among the lost towns of Georgia might be listed
Georgetown, once a flourishing township located in the southwestern portion of Warren County. That the town existed is shown in the records in the office of clerk of court in the courthouse in Washington, Wilkes County (from which Warren County received a portion of land), and later in Warren County after it was established.  Crossing the old public county line road that leads from Shoals to Augusta (about one mile from Shoals) was an old Indian trail which later became known as the Old Georgetown Road. This road ran north  toward Warrenton and south toward the Ogeechee River.  Between the crossroads and the river was situated the town of Georgetown. It must have been a good-sized town because the street was named.  In bounding the lots that changed hands, mention is made of Asbury Street, Jameson Street, Dame Streete and Broad Street. On a map elsewhere in this volume and engraved in 1818, Georgetown is given as one of the towns in Warren County. The road that led to Georgetown from the northern part of the county went by Norris, bettter known as "Four Mile Siding".    The first mention of Georgetown was made in 1791, and at that time Augusta was the nearest market and city from which supplies were secured.  There were no railroads and Georgetown's water-routed freight was quite a convenience to the farmers of Warren County, even though it had to hauled by miles in ox carts and mule-drawn wagons.  A warehouse was located in Georgetown in which freight brought by pole boats up and down the Ogeechee River was stored, and the farmers would go with their wagons and convey these supplies to their respective homes.  Records show that John Barnhill deeded to William Devereaux Lot No. 7 in the town of Georgetown, April 19, 1791.
This was two years before Warren County was created.  Harris R. Patrick and A. Devereaux were testators.There were business houses in Georgetown.  William Riley and John Hammill are known to have been merchants there." quote from History Of Warren County (1976) by Wilhoit, Virginia.  I would appreciate receiving old data on this lost town.

I am interested in the family of Hendley Jones, born 1772 in Virginia, who married Mary Baker in Warren County, Georgia in about 1803. He was the son of Benjamin Jones who settled in the Long Creek area after the Revolution.  She was a daughter of Charles and Priscilla Baker.  I would like to know where Benjamin and Hendley Jones were from in Virginia because I believe that they tie into my own Jones family in some way.  My Jones'(Thomas, James, Samuel and Adam) also settled in the Long Creek area of Wilkes/Warren County in the mid-1780s.

Hendley and Mary Jones named one of their sons Walker Perry Jones.  I am interested in knowing who he was named for.  There were Walkers in Amelia County, VA before the Revolution - and a Benjamin Jones was also living there at that time. There may be a connection here.  Any information on the Benjamin/Hendley Jones family will be appreciated.

For interested researchers of Hall, Hale:

1860 Census data for Joel Hall is incorrect - his age is shown as 37, but it should be 51 (he was 41 in 1850 and 61 in 1870).

1870 Census data for Joel Hale should be Joel Hall.  Joel shows on 1850 age 41 with wife Harriet age 19, and kids.  He shows on 1860 age 37 (error) with wife Harriet age 28, and some of the younger kids.  Joel Hale shows on 1870 age 61 (right for Joel Hall) with wife Harriet age 39.

I am not sure if those errors are due to the recorder of transcriber.

There is a Halifax County letter about "William Rose of Halifax County" as a Wagon Master during the Revolution.  I haven't been able to prove Revolutionary service.  Can anyone tell me about documentation relating to the names on the DAR marker or how to contact someone in the local DAR chapter that might be able to help me?  I have much to share about this family.

Moses Allen Gatlin was born February 4, 1782 in North Carolina. He married first Avy (Amy?) Rose (Rowe? Rhodes?) on May 14, 1799 in Warren County, Georgia.  His second marriage was to Chloe Ros (Rowe? Rhodes?) on April 16, 1803 in Warren County.

Moses Gatlin fought in the War of 1812, from September 26, 1814 to March 2, 1815,  in Co. 3, Few's Regiment, Georgia Militia, for which he received $45.04.

Moses Gatlin is listed as a witness to probation of a will for John Parish--will made August 23, 1819--probated May 5, 1823.  Names listed in the will: John Parish, wife Elizabeth, sons Hampton, William, Allen, Anslem; Daughters Lynney Cooper, Sally Rowe, Polly James, Dicey Smith, Elizabeth Parrish, Patsy Parrish; Grandaughters Elizabeth Cooper, Lucinda Rowe.

Moses Allen Gatlin (m. Chloe Rowe) witnessed a deed from Churchwell Rowe to Daniel Rowe on May 7, 1830 in Houston Co., GA (now Crawford Co.).  This was land Churchwell drew in a land lottery.  He lived in Warren Co., GA.    Churchwell was married to Sally Parrish (source: Hugh Morris).

John and Elizabeth Parrish in the will listed above were the parents of Sally Parrish (Churchwell Rowe's wife).  Moses' wife--Chloe Rowe--was obviously connected somehow to Churchwell Rowe.

Nothing is known of Moses' first wife,  Amy Rose (Rowe) other than the Warren County marriage information; although it is believed that she was related to Chloe Rowe, the second wife. It is assumed that Amy was the
mother of Jeptha Gatlin. 

 By 1830, Moses and Chloe were living in Butler County, Alabama.  In the 1850's Moses applied for and received two allotments of Bounty Land (80 acres each).  It is not known where this land was located.  By the time of
the 1860 census, both Moses and Chloe were living in the household of Jeptha Gatlin in Covington County(Williams Mill) Alabama.  Moses' was listed as an invalid and gives his age as 87.

At this time, there are only two known children of Moses Allen Gatlin; although, the family believes there were others.  These children were: Jeptha Gatlin and Eliza Gatlin.   Any information on this family will be greatly appreciated.

On August 23, 1819, John Parish wrote his last will.  This will is filed in Warren County Wills 1810 - 1829 p. 88-89.  These people are named in this will:

Son Hampton Parish
Son William Parish

According to the book "Methodist Preachers in Georgia,1783-1900", compiled by Harold Lawrence, member of North Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church, three JOHNSON Methodist preachers of Georgia were from or died in Warren County.  They were Robert R. JOHNSON (1839-1908), Amos JOHNSN(b1812 in Columbia, SC-1888) and Seaborn JOHNSON (1820-1851).  Does anyone know the parents of these preachers or any other connection that would help?

For Robert R. there is a lengthy listing of his assignments in the church and his death was in Rockmart, GA.  The compiler's source was "Boyhood and other Days in Georgia," p 243 by G. W. Yarbrough.

For Amos JOHNSON the book states that he married Frances A. LAZENBY of Warren co, Ga and they lived in Warren, Greene, Clarke, Chattooga Counties.

MATTHEWS/MATHEWS/WALDROP/WALDREP,ETC. I am searching for Joseph Matthews c. 1800. He was married to Nancy (Mary) Hall. They had  13 children,the last being born in 1850.  Some of the names were Epsy, Aseneath, Phariaby , Willliam B, and others.  Any help out there?    Dot Laird


The following item is NOT a query; however, it has been placed here as it could be helpful for others who may be searching some of these names:

This was written in 1895 - T. J. Killebrew Sr., is a Georgian by birth. His parents, Marmaduke N. Killebrew and Marie L. Wiggins were married in 1839 in Warren County, GA. Nine children blessed this union, the eldest of whom Thomas J. his father was a planter, and in the interest of his business moved to the sparsely settled lands of Smuttier County. In 1852 he again moved, this time to Clay County, where he lived until 1865. When he came to Alabama, settling in Dale County, two miles southwest of the little town of Newton. On the Choctawhatchee River. Here he engaged in farming and soon bought a small mill used as a grist mill, a rice mill and cotton gin. In 1872, he associated his son, T.J. Jr. with himself in business, added a woolen mill and began the manufacturer of full stock jeans. In 1885, the firm Killebrew and Son was dissolved, the father retiring from business sold out his interest to his son, Thomas J. He then retired in his seventy-ninth year (1806)?

The mother of our subject was born in Warren County, GA in 1823 and then grew to womanhood. She was married in her 19th year (1842)? and was the mother of nine children, eight of whom are living. Early in life she joined the Methodist Episcopal Church South and still lives in her seventy-second year. The subject of this sketch grew to manhood on the farm, having the best of educational advantages to be derived from private tutors. Under these studied Latin, the higher mathematics and the natural sciences, besides taking a course in English literature. Upon his arrival into manhood the war broke out (civil) and he entered the state militia for six months, in "Old Joe Brown's Pets" so called. He then enlisted in the confederate service and was assigned to the Eastern army, serving most of the time during the war in garrison duty along the Atlantic coast, though he participated in
the three days battle of Bentonsville. He was regularly discharged April 30, 1865, and given $150.50 in silver. This was all the money he had to get home and begin business with.  Upon returning home he began farming and made his first crop with nothing but a weeding hoe. He farmed six years at which time he entered business with his father.  In 1885 he purchased his father's share and then began to enlarge and strengthen his facilities, until the present time. In 1890 he erected a fine brick building which is now his factory which has a capacity of 5,000 yards per month of nine ounce all wool Jeans and about 25,000 pounds of spun yard. The machining in this factory is
of the most improved pattern and about fifteen hands employed. The power is supplied by an eighteen foot overshot wheel.  He commenced business with about $4,500, and by his own efforts built up his business to its present magnitude. He has ready sale for all the goods he can manufacture and has contracts from there
to eight months ahead. He now contemplates enlarging of his plant and so changing it to enable him to manufacture his wool into garments.  Mr. Killebrew was married in 1865 to Martha S. Blocker, daughter of Stephen and Rebecca (Rice) Blocker. Mrs. Killebrew's father was a slave owner and rich farmer. She had the best of educational advantages, taking a thorough literary course in the Southern Masonic Female College of Covington, GA.  graduating with the first honors. She was married at 23 and now is the mother of eight children, seven of whom still live. The boys all graduated from Auburn and the girls from Wesleyan College in Macon, GA.

Note #2------My name is Kip Killebrew and Thomas Jefferson Killebrew, the jeans maker, was my great, great grandfather. The information I have on him comes from my cousin Martha Killebrew of Montgomery, Al. TJ. Killebrew purchased an old water wheel in Newton, Al after the Civil war and began by spinning cotton cloth and then expanded into making woolen/cotton blue jeans. The remains of the dam and a few bricks from the jeans factory can still be found hidden in the brush. TJ's beautiful home still exists and is well maintained on a street near the old dam site.  Bob Killebrew    bkiller153@AOL.com

I have been searching for the parents of a James M. BATES b. 1812 GA. What part of GA, I'm not sure.  There is a James M. BATES listed on the 1820 Warren Co. Census, page 274, with 2 sons 0-10 yrs of age, right age.  How can I prove or eliminate this one? It's impossible, I know.   If only there were a time machine, I would buy a ticket back to 1800 and stay for several years.  Then I would insist that all records and important information be written in triplicate and stored in three locations through out the county, so that future generations would know for sure who went where
