Read the info. regarding Drawdy - Daniel Drawdy did indeed receive a land grant in SC, April 29, 1768. He and his wife, Elizabeth, moved from Augusta County, VA to SC in 1758. His son Daniel was married to Amy Walker whose father was James Walker. Daniel and James were Revolutionary War heros. Smith "Dade" Drawdy was the son of Daniel and Amy also. He married Amanda Howard.
If you do not have the book "Pioneers of Wiregrass Georgia" by Judge Huxford, I believe you can still order if from The Chamber of Commerce. There are also two books, "Memories of Mount Dora and Lake County" and "The Story of Mount Dora" that may still be available from the Chamber. That area was settled by descendents of Daniel and was named for my gggrandmother, Dora. I have more info. will share if you so desire. The earliest references are Barnstable, Mass. 1639 (spelled Doughty, Samuel) and Dowdy, George, admitted freeman in 1645, Henry, Guilford Conn. This came from Geneological Register of the 1st settlers of New England. There was also a Charles J. Doughty mentioned in that area and in 1806. Have yet to make connection to SC and Fl Drawdy's. Unless they are the VA ones.
