Named vs. Numbered Districts
Posted by: Thomas Fort (ID *****8176) Date: January 13, 2009 at 16:51:45

Does anyone have anything that correlates the 1850 districts

(Boners, Dotsons, Dowdys, Floyds, Hamilton, Hueys, Humphries, Millners, Moores, Slaughters, Templetons, Whiteheads)

to the 1860 districts

(Crawfords, Dawdells, Hamilton, Ellerslie, Goodmans, District 19, Valley Plains, Waverly Hall, Whitakers, Whitesville, Osborn Mill, Negro Heel)

and from there to the numbered militia districts

(672, 679, 695, 696, 703, 707, 717, 781, 782, 786, 920, 934, 1186, 1853) ?

Were the district lines for 1850 and 1860 the same as they are in the map at http://www.usgwarchives.org/ga/maps/harris.gif ??

I have looked in Barfield's Harris County book, but could not find anything.

Thanks,
Tom
