Hi Evelyn: You probably read my email to Marian Durham Roberts. My email to her, I made mistakes about Abraham being my great grandfather a few times, that is incorrect, Abraham is my great, great grandfather. My gr gr grandfather had a orphan named Jacob. Is this the same Jacob that was found on the 1805 land lottery from Jefferson County, Georgia? I have been told by letters from my Aunt about this, she also mentioned something about a widow with a minor child, a Hannah Yearta or yerty, she drew a prize and a blank and Abraham and Jacob also drew blanks. This is what I have in the letters, my Aunt now deceased had written me. I dont understand the lingo of drawing blanks, but thats what she had written. Maybe someone can explain what this drawings were all about and is blank the proper term? Anyway, Evelyn, if this is the same Jacob, that was with my g g grandfather Abraham, I would like to know more about him. Thanks

Rick Yeager
