Georgia Land Lottery (4th land lottery of Georgia) -- a
list of lucky drawers for Monroe County.
This lottery was for lands ceded by the Creek Nation of Indians
by treaty made and concluded at the Indian Spring.
The original boundary of Monroe County covered all of present day
Monroe County, Pike County, Lamar County and parts of Spalding, Butts,
Bibb and Upson Counties. The list includes all those lots with a notation
added on the right columns if the lot became part of another county.
Georgia Land Lottery (by county)
Virginia Crilley states: "Donna
Eldridge did most of the typing for this project of getting on-line
those names who drew in the 1827 lottery. Keith Giddeon
took her work and has created the databases that you'll find on this
page. Keith also has provided maps of the region so you can see where
the actual land district was located. This is a magnificent addition
to Georgia Genealogy... you'll be delighted, I know! You can
view it by COUNTY - seeing it sorted by Day of Drawing or by Name of
the person. You can also view by STATE - seeing all the names
in alphabetical order. Coming in the future will be by Section,
Land District and Land Lot so you'll be able to trace back any land
within these counties."
