Editorial Reviews

The purpose of this book is to document the record of grants from the state of Georgia to an individual for each land lot distributed through the land lottery process in 1807. Even before the 1805 Land Lottery drawing had begun, pressure was mounting for Georgia to gain control over the remaining land between the Oconee and Ocmulgee Rivers. Less than three months after the conclusion of the 1805 Georgia Land Lottery, the United States purchased 2.2 million acres from the Creek Indians. The 1807 Land Lottery was structured almost identically to the 1805 Land Lottery, continuing the district and land lot survey system and repeating the use of a land lottery to distribute the land.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Just received this much-anticipated book. It has already started to help solve mysteries in my Georgia genealogy search. Names of "Fortunate Drawers" in the lottery can be found elsewhere, but "Grantees" are hard to come by, and they are often different for a given lot. A well arranged, very useful genealogical tool.
