Henry County Bicentennial
Many of the counties created by the 1821 Georgia Land Lottery are celebrating their 200th anniversary this year. Henry County held such a ceremony last month.
Remember, your ancestors were not required to name all their children in wills — you just hope they did. If someone did not leave a will, and had enough property for the courts to name an administrator, there should be a division, usually in the Annual Returns, or similar volumes. I have seen distributive shares as low as 30 cents, so study the returns carefully.
