Freeny land and mills, Milledgeville 1814

I recently came across the following advertisement in the Georgia Argus newspaper dated 21 September 1814, p. 4:

“The Subscriber offers for sale his Mills and Land whereon he lives, two and a half miles from Milledgeville, low for negroes or money, and will give a liberal credit for one half. The seat and custom is inferior to none in the state. For terms apply to the subscriber on the premises. Gillah Freeny.”

Would anyone have any information on precisely where Gillah Freeny’s mills and land were located near Milledgeville? This Gillah Freeny was a son of Elijah Freeny, Sr, who came to Georgia from the Delmar, MD region in the 1790s and settled in Hancock County. Gillah, and perhaps some of his siblings, wound up eventually in Baldwin County in the vicinity of Milledgeville. I am interested in finding the location of the Freeny land in Baldwin (and how they came to own this land), and would appreciate any information.
