Re: John Jenkins HIETT, 1849, Ga.
My grandfather was Peyton Andrew Hiett who, according to the 1900 census in Madison County, Alabama, was 52 years old, and was born in Georgia.I have looked at the indexes for Georgia for Hiett's and have found only a Nathan Hiett, who is shown in Chattagoa County in 1840.He is shown again in 1840The only Hiett in 1830 is a Henry Hiett in what may have been Tuscumbia County? In 1950 Nathan also appears in the index.
The only Hietts in the index for 1860 are Robert C. Hiett and N.B.Hiett, again in Chatooga County.
No Hiett appears in the index for 1870.
A publication on Confederate soldier claims in the civil war lists three Hiett's from Georgia.
They are Nathan Hiett - Private, Aug 31, 1861. Died near Danville, Va. in 1862.Death Claim fied Nov. I, 1802.
Mordecai Hiett. Private Aug. 31, 1861. Died of Pleuro-pneumonia in C.S.A. , General Hospital at Danville, Va. July 12, 1862.
Hiett, William P. Private Aug. 31, 1861,died of disease in Winder Hosptal at Richmond Va. June 17, 1862.
I guess there is no point to this note.I still have to look at the census itself, not just the index.The only point I suppose is that there are not many Hiett's in Georgia during this period of time, and with some further checking, we may be able to put some of these people together.
I will let you know if I learn something.
Sorry if I bored you.
