Early Georgia Wills and Settlements of Estates, Wilkes County, Volumes 1-2
The records in this excellent little book are supplementary to Mrs. Grace G. Davidson's Early Records of Georgia: Wilkes County (1932, 1933). The records--principally wills and settlements of estates, but also deeds of gift, inheritances, and marriage bonds--have more than ordinary genealogical significance, as they name not only principals but also beneficiaries (showing relationships), as well as witnesses and executors. The material is mostly of the period dating from the late 18th to the early 19th centuries and identifies nearly 5,000 early Georgians.
