Votes:0 LIVING ON THE UNICOI ROAD From the Northeast Georgia Mountains, an epic account of the Georgia Frontier and Great Georgia Gold Rush This tour page contains illustrations and excerpts from Unicoi Road , a 188-page book which begins at a long-abandoned and all-but-forgotten pioneer cemetery, and from there sets off on a three-centuries-long odyssey through the Helen valley and across much of North Georgia. The region was the wild domain of panthers, Indians, traders, and soldiers for a hundred years until the Unicoi Road was begun in 1813. The next century belonged to the pioneers and gold miners whose story is told for the first time in Unicoi Road . The tale does not end there, though, for Unicoi Road follows the threads of the past to find them still woven into the evolving tapestry of mo Read More Go to Site

Votes:0 Chronology Of Georgia by Richard E. Irby, Jr February 17, 1997 1629 Charles I grants a charter to Sir Robert Heath which includes all territory between 31? and 36? N Lat. and extended from sea to sea. This is approximately from Albemarle Sound in North Carolina to Jekyll Island off the coast of Georgia. The delivery of this charter is a matter of dispute. There are even claims that this charter was conveyed to Samuel Vassal in 1630. March 24, 1663 Charles II delivers the 1629 charter to the Earl of Claredon, the Duke of Albemarle, Sir George Carteret and five other favorites. July 10, 1665 A second charter extends the bounds of the grant to 36? 30' and 29? N Lat. This is approximately from the northern border of North Carolina (36? 34') and Daytona Beach, Florida.

Votes:0 The road to Wrightsborough... The story of the Quaker colony at Wrightsborough, near present day Thomson, Georgia, begins in 1767 when Jonathan Sell and Joseph Maddock , both members of the Cane Creek Meeting in North Carolina, applied for land grants in the territory of Georgia. 12,000 acres were reserved for the Quakers provided at least 10 families settled on the land by February 1, 1768. In the event, they far exceeded the requirement: 40 families were in the first group, led by Joseph Maddock and Jonathan Sell. In fact so many settlers arrived in that first year that on December 6, 1768 Joseph Maddock, along with Jonathan Sell and Thomas Watson, asked for an additional grant. The text of the grant reads as follows: At a Council held in the Council Chamber at Savannah on Tuesday, the 7 Read More Go to Site
