The Georgians. Jeannette Holland Austin. (1984).
This is a collection of 283 genealogies which Mrs. Austin compiled over a period of twenty years as a professional genealogist. Taken as a whole, it represents a cross-section of pioneer Georgia families, and its publication is intended to assist others researching these same families.
Although the earliest Georgia settlers were brought in by General Oglethorpe in 1733, the majority of the settlers--from Connecticut, Maryland, Virginia, and the Carolinas, arrived after the Revolution, taking up bounty grants, joining in the land lotteries, and settling lands surrendered in the Indian treaties. While this work deals with some of Oglethorpe's settlers, the vast majority of the genealogies deal with Georgians who descend from settlers from other states.
The following is a partial list of the families covered: Adair, Appling, Ashe, Ashmore, Austin, Aycock, Ayres, Bagwell, Bealle, Benton, Blackstock, Bloodworth, Blount, Boatright, Bone, Bonnell, Boyett, Brantley, Brooke, Buckner, Burney, Burrell, Camp, Carmichael, Catching, Cauley, Chaffin, Chambliss, Chaney, Clements, Cliatt, Cofer, Coffey, Corley, Cowan, Danielly, Dupree, Durden, Earnest, Edmonson, Etheridge, Few, Fordham, Futch, Gay, Gee, Groover-Gruber, Habersham, Hagin, Hansford, Hardyman, Harrell, Heard, Hiers, Hillhouse, Huckaby, Hufstetler, Jarrard, Kimbrough, Knighton, Lamar, Lanier, Lavender, Layfield, Leggett, Lightner, Loggins, McCorquodale, Mackgehee, McGruder, McMichael, Means, Milledge, Orr, Paulk, Peavy, Peek, Phinizy, Rae, Rich, Shiflet, Stallsworth, Stegall, Stucki, Surrency, Tankersley, Tapley, Tekle, Tennille, Tindall, Tomlin, Trotman, Veal, Vickers, Waller, Wheeless, Whisenant, Whiteside, Whitlow, Winfrey, Womack, Wooten, Wynne, and Youngblood.
