Columbia Co. Districts & Land Lots?
Posted by: Leo Leonard (ID *****3662) Date: August 22, 2003 at 17:34:01

Columbia Co. Researchers:

During a recent trip to the Georgia Dept. of Archives and History, I found a
description of the boundaries of the Militia Districts of Columbia Co. in
1931(_Georgia's_Official_Register_compiled by Ruth Blair in 1931, pp.
580-581). Since Columbia Co. is a headright county, I was surprised to find
references to districts and land lots in this description. With the
assistance of an archivist, I was able to determine that the districts
referred to seemed to be the same as the school districts on a 1915 map of
Columbia Co. which is also held by the GA Archives. However, I still don't
understand the references to numbered land lots. I have included below the
description of the boundaries of GMD 129 (Appling) as an example. I hope
that someone will be able to explain how I can identify the land lot
referred to.

**********************************
129 APPLING

Bounded on north by Green Brier creek and land lot 16; east by land lot 16
and Little Kiokee creek and Louisville public road; south by Old Wrightsboro
public road and McDuffie county line and Green Brier creek.

***********************************

Thanks for any assistance,
Leo Leonard
