I visited the Paulding County, Georgia (GA) library today and wanted to share my research with this forum. source book: "Index to Headright and Bounty Grants of Georgia 1756 - 1909"
listed in order of grantee, location, book, page, acres, year Allen, Jos, Burke, SSS, 100, 150, 1789 Allen, Jos, Burke, SSS, 99, 400, 1789 Allen, Jos, Wilkes, UUU, 495, 200, 1791 Allen, Jos, Wilkes, DDD, 461, 250, 1784
I want to assume all four are a Joseph Allen born about 1762 in Virginia who married Agnes Patterson. Records show a Joseph in Elbert County, GA, which is nearer to Wilkes than to Burke...Can anyone elaborate or connect? I'm looking for Joseph's parents. *FYI: Burke and Wilkes Counties were both formed in 1777 from Colonial Georgia. Any help appreciated.
