Re: [Moses & William] Traywick Family History

Thought you would be interested in the information I found concerning Moses TRAWICK/TRAYWICK and his son, William, while researching other family lines in Washington Co., GA.

I found all the following information in "Records of Washington County, Georgia" by Marie De Lamar & Elizabeth Rothstein:

On Page 39
List of Persons Living in Washington Co. who registered for the Drawing - 1805 Lottery (P = land received, B = no land received):
"Moses Trawick BB" [Persons entitled to Draw: 2 Draws - Married man with wife and/or child, 1 year resident of GA, Citizen of US.]

On Page 51
1820 Heads of Families from National Archives - Microfilm No. 33, Roll 9: "Page 162 Moses Trawick"

I wonder if the following Elizabeth Trawick could be "Betsy" the wife of Moses. Doesn't it seems odd that she would be shown as a "head of family" when Moses is already listed as a "head of family"? But she is listed right next to him on the page and their daughter, Elizabeth is too young being born the year before to be a "head of a family"?

1830 Heads of Families from National Archives - Microfilm No. 19, Roll 21: "Page 264 Moses Traywick"

On Page 58
1830 Heads of Families from National Archives - Microfilm No. 19, Roll 21: "Page 270 William Traywick"
