DAR Proof - Obit or Will on John Erwin (1801-1885)
Posted by: Carrie Olson (ID *****6775) Date: February 26, 2012 at 12:05:05

Hi,

I need to find proof to backup a DAR application. Am looking for a will or obituary (or both) for John Erwin who was part of the Georgia Colony. He was born April 26, 1801 and died July 30, 1885.

Or an obituary for John's wife, Sarah (Nicholson) Erwin, who was born on July 28, 1803 and died July 5 (or 7), 1882.

In particular, I'm looking for a link to one or two of their children: William Nicholson Erwin (1833-1914) also of the Georgia Colony, or Mary C. "Polly" Erwin Ownby (1824-1894) of Union County, Georgia.

If there's anyone who can look for obituaries or wills, I would be extremely appreciative. I'm willing to pay for time, copies, etc.

Thanks,
Carrie
