Reprint of the 1838 ed., with a new index and map of original Cherokee County.
The upwards of 20,000 persons listed in this work were fortunate drawers in the 1832 (sixth and last) Land Lottery held in the original Cherokee County, Georgia. Cherokee County would ultimately become the parent county for all or part of twenty-five contemporary Georgia counties. In many instances, the basis for qualification is given in abbreviated form after the drawer's name. Veterans of the Revolutionary War and their widows and orphans, as well as veterans and their widows and orphans of the War of 1812, are indicated. The original Cherokee County was first divided into the counties of Cass (renamed Bartow), Cherokee, Cobb, Flouyd, Forsyth, Gilmer, Lumpkin, Murray, Paulding and Union, and a small tract left over was added to Campbell County. Later divisions added the counties of Catoosa, Chattooga, Dade, Dawson, Fannin, Gordon, Milton (now part of Fulton), Pickens, Polk, Towns, Walker and Whitfield, and parts of Douglas and Haralson, to the list of counties formed from the original Cherokee County.
