I am researching Jacob STILWELL/STILLWELL & his family, known to be in Troup Co.GA in 1830. Jacob was a Baptist minister who migrated from NC to GA in 1827 to participate in the land lottery. Anyone with an interest in, or knowledge of this family, would love to hear from you. Or, if anyone with access to an 1830 Troup Co.GA Census could provide detail on the two Jacob listings (Page 038 & 042), would greatly appreciate that help. Thanks.
