Daniel Taxables in Wilkes Co GA 1785-1805

from Wilkes County GA Tax Records 1785-1805, v.1-2
by Frank Parker Hudson 1996

These are the Daniel entries from Mr. Hudson's stunning work. He has analyzed the districts through the years to develop his theory about the boundary of "Defacto Wilkes" - the maps and descriptions of the original Wilkes/Washington border were lost, but he has shown what it involved and where people were cut into through the years.
The "Today" column is mine, giving every county that may have received some part of the given district throughout the years. This may be misleading: you should really consult the descriptions at the end!
"Hudson's District Label" is his own system, starting from 1785, which he then tracks through the years as they are split, joined, cut into new counties, etc. He has even determined how many people were affected by changes and hunted them down in their new counties to confirm it. I have organized the data according to the transformation of the districts, thus keeping people together through the years; again the descriptions at the end should be tracked to see the why of this format.
The first time a district is mentioned, there is a link to the description (with a return link to the tax list). "enc"=encompassed, "res"=residents, "1793 rearrange"=the 1793 rearrangement of the Georgia Militia Districts, "trib(s)"=tributaries. I have not written GMD for the numbered Georgia Militia Districts. It REALLY helps to have the militia district map handy, you can open it in a new window, then click on the area to see the GMDs. There are two areas covered in these descriptions, so you have to go to the relevant one.
Many of the columns here were not actually reflected in any given schedule, but they are all included in the headings.
A name with no numbers means that 1 poll was turned in with no other information.

Here is a printable version (smaller print, but all data fits on the page on landscape setting).

A = Returned lands on Morris's Ck, Newford Ck, Fishing Ck. Area reduced after 1786, split to create B, a few residents put into O. A few added back from B in 1793 Militia re-arrangement. 3/4 put into TT when formed in 1803/4 from A. 1790 - A enc now 178th plus lower 1/2 of 180th in today Wilkes. 1805 - enc area now known as 178th. return

AAA = Located in fk of Broad and Savannah Rivs. Until part of BBB was taken in 1786, AAA stretched to the north along Coldwater Ck. Incl town of Petersburg. Dec 1790 - entire distr put into Elbert.

BBB = 1786 fr northern section of AAA and southern section of DDD. Rapid settlement caused 1786 split of BBB to create CCC. This distr was the nucleus for two distr #8 and #9, descr in rank and arrangement of Elbert Co Militia as of Jun 1791; one commanded by Joseph Blackwell, other by Benjn Higginbotham. Also appears Higginbotham's distr may have taken areas south and west of Beaverdam Ck fr HHH, KKK, GGG of 1790. Today enc 315th and part of 197th in Elbert, and 118th and southwest part of 112th in Hart Co.

Area appears to be the now 195th and 196th of Elbert enc community of Ruckersville. return

DDD = Was northeast corner of orig Wilkes until EEE created fr it in 1788-89 period. Capt Bailey, commander in 1790 while in Wilkes, is listed as commdr of distr #11 of Elbert Co Militia in Jun 1791, his distr described: "Beginning on the Savannah at the mouth of Cedar Creek, thence down the said river to the mouth of Coldwater Creek, up the said creek to Cunningham's Road, thence along said road to Cedar Creek, then down said creek to the beginning." 1790 - incl now 199th and northeast corner of 315th distr of Elbert, and lower section of 1114th distr and southeast tip of 1118th distr in Hart.

EEE = created fr DDD in 1790 to become northeast corner of orig Wilkes. Descr in Jun 1791 Elbert Militia arrangement: "Beginning at the north corner of District No. 9, thence along the line of Franklin County to the Savannah River, thence down said river to the mouth of Cedar Creek, thence up said creek to Cunningham's Road, thence along said road to Coldwater Creek, thence up said creek to the beginning." Today almost totally in Hart, enc town of Hartwell and extensive area of Hartwell Reservoir.

FFF = Tax recd begins 1785. 1788 or 1789 - reduced to form GGG. Descr in Elbert Co Militia Jun 1791: "Beginning at the mouth of Bertram's Creek, up Broad River to the mouth of Fallling Creek, thence up the middle fork of said creek to the source, thence to Carter's Plantation on Beaverdam, thence down the Beaverdam to the line of District No. 1 [(AAA, inserted by author)]". Today incl most of 191st and western half of 190th. Incl Nancy Hart State Park, on Wahachee Ck and community of Middleton.

GGG = Only extant tax recd in Wilkes is 1790. Descr in Elbert Co Militia Jun 1791: "Beginning at the mouth of Falling Creek, up Broad River to the mouth of Cedar Creek, up said creek to the source, thence down said creek to the beginning." Res of GGG had made 1785-1787 returns in FFF. Six of the nine landowners adjourning [sic] the 950a tract from which 40a were bought for site of Elberton were res of GGG in 1790. Today all of 193rd except eastern edge, plus lower half of 189th.

HHH = Tax recds begin 1785. Incl lands on both sds of North Fork of Broad Rv until 1787 when it gave up area west of North Fk to JJJ. Descr in Elbert Militia Jun 1791: "Beginning at the mouth of Cedar Creek, up the north fork of Broad River to Big Creek [(now Deep Creek, inserted by author)], thence up the said creek to Jo Thomas Bucks (?), thence to head of Cedar Creek, thence down said creek to the beginning." 1790 area is now 202nd plus lower part of 197th.

III = Only extant tax is 1790. Formed 1788/89 when area betw North and South Forks of Broad River split by a line along Scull Shoal Ck. Upper resulting distr is III. Descr in Elbert Militia Jun 1791: "Beginning at Scull Shoal Creek (the upper line of District No. 5) and running up the south fork of Broad River to the Franklin County line, thence along the said line to the north fork of the Broad River, thence down the said river til it intersects the line of District No. 5." James Meriwether confused the north and south forks in this description, (Executive Minutes, Vol. 3), since Scull Shoal Creek is a tributary of the north fork, not the south fork. 1790 - III put into Elbert, 1811 - to Madison. Now 204th northeast of the south fork, incl Danielsville. A small part of 262nd southeast of town of Ila and all of 438th, except the northwest corner taken fr Franklin Co.

JJJ = The area betw the North and South Forks of Broad Rv was div betw Y, which straddled the South Fk, and HHH and KKK, which straddled the North Fork until 1786. Before 1787 returns, the entire area betw the fks was made into JJJ, taking res fr Y, HHH, KKK. Then, prior to 1790 returns, JJJ divided in the other direction by a line roughly east-west, creating III in upper half. Descr in Elbert Militia Jun 1791: "Beginning at the confluence of the north and south fork of the Broad River, running thence up the south fork to Scull Shoal Creek, thence in a direct line to the north fork of the Broad River, thence to the beginning." [same description of Meriwether's confusing the forks as above.] Dec 1790 - JJJ put into Elbert, Dec 1811 - into Madison. 1790 area incl now 203rd, 205th, 1616th of Madison, incl towns of Comer and Carlton.

KKK = Tax recd extant for 1785-6 when KKK extended from a line down the middle of the north and south forks of the Broad Rv on the SW to the north fk of Beaverdam Ck on the northwest. After 1786 returns - all of KKK on the southwest sd of north fk of Broad Rv removed and used with parts of Y and HHH to form III.
