1827 George Land Lottery -- Delk names
I am researching the Jacob Delk shown here. He may have gone to GA from NC (Johnston Co. or Wake Co. NC) and was the father of Edea/Edy Delk who married James Hall of Johnston Co. and Wake Co. NC. Their daughter may be my ZILPHA HALL, who m. ALSEY PACE in 1820 Johnston Co., NC. The Hall and Pace families lived next door to one another in 1820 in Johnston Co.
I don't know if the "R.S." after the name of David Delk is a part of his
name or means he was a Revolutionary Soldier.

Delk, Jacob soldier Gwinnett County Dunbars
Gwinnett County was established on Dec. 15, 1818 by an act of the General
Assembly (Ga. Laws 1818, p. 27). That legislation created Gwinnett,
Habersham, and Hall counties from lands ceded by the Cherokee Indians on
July 8, 1817 in the Treaty of the Cherokee Agency and by the Creek
Indians on January 22, 1818 in the Treaty of the Creek Agency. Both
treaties were necessary because the traditional boundary between the
Creeks and Cherokees ran through present-day Gwinnett County. Four days
after the creation of Gwinnett County, the legislature added a portion of
western Jackson County.
Georgia's 44th county was named for provisional Georgia governor and
signer of the Declaration of Independence Button Gwinnett (1735-1777).
Portions of Gwinnett County were used to create DeKalb County (1822) and
Barrow County (1914). Additionally, between 1819 and 1875, portions of
Gwinnett were transferred to the following counties: Hall (1819), Jackson
(1819), DeKalb (1823, 1828, and 1829), Walton (1820), and Rockdale
(1875). [Click here and here for more information on the history of
