1805 Georgia Land Lottery

Each of the individuals who drew in the 1805 land lottery in GA are listed in a manuscript which is located at the Georgia Department of Archives and History in Atlanta, GA. Entries in the manuscript are grouped by the first letter of the surname. Within each group, entries are arranged by county and are numbered serially with a "registrant's serial number." this appears to be the order in which they were registered. Many fathers and sons appear grouped together. Also, people living geographically close to each other appear grouped together in some cases. It is clear that they are not arranged in alphabetical order by first name. The Jones names in Columbia Co., GA are numbered in the range of 114 to 180 (inclusive). The notes by each name are in the original manuscript. The notes in the right column are my own and are undocumented (by me) as indicated. Name # Draw My Notes (undocumented):
