Notes for J
John was a silversmith in Augusta, Georgia in about 1796. He went to near Augusta, GA when he was about 32 years old.

John Sapp - Aliepheus / Eliepheus - "Lyfus" lived in Richmond Co., GA about 1832.

John Sapp was in Rhea Co., Tennessee by 1810, and bought land from a Collins. He had a mill on Piney Creek. In late 1813-14, his first wife, Elizabeth King died. Descendants know that John Sapp then married Winnie Anderson in about 1814 in Rhea Co., Tennessee.

John Sapp was gone from Rhea Co., Tennessee before 1830. Some of his children went to Alabama. Perhaps John and Winnie did also? But John and Winnie are in the 1850 census of Shelby County, Texas. Did they go back to Alabama or Georgia?John Sapp first appeared as a chainbearer for the survey of his father's land in 1786. No marriage records have been found, however, other records indicate his wife to be Elizabeth Sanders. In Nathum Sanders' will, he list John Sapp as his son-in-law. On September 10, 1794, John Sapp deeded land to James King who was also listed as a son-in-law in Nathum Sanders' will. Witnesses to his deed were Jesse Sapp and Hannah Sapp.

John Sapp left North Carolina between 1798 and 1800. His wife, Elizabeth Sapp, is listed with children on the 1800 and 1810 Stokes County census. Stokes County deeds show that on October 23, 1804, John Sapp of Franklin county, Georgia sold to John Macey of Guilford County the land granted to him in 1795. In Franklin County, Georgia, Georgia Tax Digest, Vol. 1, page 25 in year 1803, John Sapp was listed with 7n (negroes) and 150 acres on Stevens Creek. In the Franklin County Deed Book P, page 75, John Sapp and Elizabeth Sapp deeded land to William Smith on May 5, 1804. John Sapp was also found on the 1805 Georgia Land Lottery with two draws in Franklin County. No other record has been found on John Sapp. A Milley Sapp is listed on the 1800 and 1820 Stokes County census. Benjamin Sanders, a brother to Elizabeth, deeded land to Milley Sapp in 1814. It is not known if there is a relationship between Milley Sapp and John Sapp.
