1821 Columbia County GA William Brasel/Braswell land lottery qualifier
Posted by: jane doe (ID *****6587) Date: September 21, 2011 at 10:08:35
  of 1257

Georgia Department of Archives, microfilm drawer 48, box 80 (2). This is a partial list of those in the 29th Battalion (Columbia County GA). NOTE: section "G" is an unpublished list in two of the land lottery publications in current circumlation. Anyone with further interests in this place and time should check into this microfilm which includes section "G". I will not list the entire section on this microfilm nor will I include section "G", but I will list first name in Capt Few's district, the names leading up to William Brasel and a few names after his plus I am only listing the eligible draws for William Brasel and not for the other names. The names are not in alphabetical order on the list.

Capt Leonadis Few District #8 Militia #135
Susannah Progue- Widow.............
Ransom R. G. Lee
Macelmore Watkins
Charles L. Pace
William W. Cobbs
Needham Alford
Jiles Wilkins
Ephraim Frasier
George Gray
Jordan Driver
William Brasel (one draw, so he is a single male)
John Martain
Mary Shields - widow
Robert Shields
James Lavender
Anderson W Fossett
Sullivan Harrison
Eldrige P. Ivey
Hannah Few - Widow
Mary Few - Widow
orphans of William Few Esqr.
....several names then....
orphans of Major William Few
James Cain
orphans of Moses Wade
John Reese
a series of JONES family members
more names I am not listing and then Capt. Few's district ends with
Thomas J. Holmes.

Of special interest: the qualfiers for the 1807 land lottery had to meet the same qualifications for the 1805 land lottery and had to of been in the 1805 land lottery and draw blank(s) in order to draw in the 1807 land lottery.

If you find your relative in the 1807, but not in the 1805 land lottery then your relative's document is missing for the 1805 land lottery or mis-spelled as one could not draw in 1807 that did not draw a blank in 1805.
