Landholder's of Wrightsboro, GA prior to 1776

-- [ From: Bill Denney * EMC.Ver #2.5.3 ] --

Several folks have asked me if their families were in the Wrightsboro,
GA Quaker settlement. The book "The Story of Wrightsboro 1768-1964" by
Mrs. Pearl Baker of the Wrightsboro Restoration Foundation of Thomson,
GA has a list of residents prior to 1776, which is shown below.
Hopefully, this will answer your questions (note that a few non-Quakers
are listed at the end). I suspect that some of the folks in the first
list were also non-Quakers. As I recall, an article on Thomas Ansley's
"Rock House" (built between 1770-1785) stated that he was not a Quaker..
