they might have immigrated from Co. Antrim in Northern Ireland. Double
names are a halmark of the Scots who settled there. Possibly Covenanters
who fled the Scotish Wars of the covenant. Sept of Clan Stewart..?somehow
related tot he Earls of Balloway, garth and Garlies. Some went with
Stewarts who held Atholl..  Desease common with McMichael's
porphyria..causing variety of problems physical and emotional..symptoms
include fair skin which burns rather than tanning, photosensitive
eyes..also called Mary Queen of Scots disease and King George II's

The following information was copied from Ancestry=s Red Book American
State, County & Town Sources, Edited by Alice Eichholz, Ph.D., C.G., page
118-119.
ALand and property records, combined with tax digests, are the key to
successful research in Georgia. From 1733 until 1752, while the colony
was controlled by its trustees, all land was granted to settlers "in tale
male," meaning that the property could not be sold, mortgaged, or willed
to anyone other than a male heir. If the grantee had no male heir, the
land he owned reverted to the trustees. Once the colony's charter was
returned to the Crown, a provincial government was established, and by
1756 settlers were being granted land without restrictions. Kings George
n and George ill continued to make land grants until the Revolutionary
War. See Pat Bryant, Entry of Claims for Georgia Landholders, 1733-1755
(Atlanta: State Printing Office, 1975). The R. J. Taylor Jr., Foundation
has compiled a series of colonial Georgia records. Four volumes have been
published to date by Reprint Company, including abstracts of Georgia
colonial conveyance records from 1750-1804. One volume is an index to
probate records dating from 1733-78.
AThe first effective legislation concerning land grants after Georgia
became a state, dated 17 February 1783, provided for headrights and
bounty land grants. The law allowed each head of household 200 acres free
as his own head-right and fifty additional acres for each member of his
family and each slave at a cost of from one to four shillings per acre.
Grants were limited to 1,000 acres and the grantee was responsible for
paying survey and grant fees. Those who had received grants under
colonial jurisdiction were entitled to the lands they occupied when the
law went into effect.
AThe 1783 act also provided for establishing a land court in each county.
A land grant applicant would appear before five justices to swear under
oath concerning the size of his family and the number of slaves he owned
and obtain a warrant of survey. Once the county surveyor completed his
layout of the applicant's land, a copy of the plat of survey was
forwarded to the surveyor general and the original was filed in the
county. The applicant was then required to live on the land for a year
and cultivate 3 percent of the total acreage. After meeting those
requirements, the applicant could apply to the governor's office for his
grant and pay all fees. At that point the grant would be issued and
recorded. Headright grants were made in Bryan, Bullock, Burke, Camden,
Chatham, Clarke, Columbia, Effingham, Elbert, Emanuel, Franklin,
Glascock, Glynn, Greene, Hancock, Hart, Jackson, Jefferson, Johnson,
Laurens, Liberty, Lincoln, Madison, McDuffie, McIntosh, Montgomery,
Oconee, Oglethorpe, Richmond, Screven, Taliaferro, Tattnall, Warren,
Washington, and Wilkes counties.
ABounty land grants were made to veterans of the Revolutionary War in
lieu of monetary compensation for military service. A second act of 25
February 1784 created new counties and designated some of the area as
bounty lands for veterans who had served in the Continental Line or Navy.
Most of the area that later became Greene County was reserved for bounty
land grants. Other bounties were made to citizens, refugees, or
militiamen. See Silas Emmett Lucas, Jr., Index to the Headright and
Bounty Grants of Georgia, 1756-1909 (Vidalia, Ga.: Georgia Genealogical
Reprints, 1970). The Georgia Department of Archives and History and the
FHL have microfilm copies of original land grants.
AOnly Georgia has the distinction of distributing lands by lottery.
Georgia acquired large parcels of Indian land as a result of an 1802
treaty between the United States and the Creek Nation. The new lands were
located in the northern and western sections of present-day Georgia and
were parceled out through a series of land lotteries which gave every
Georgian an equal chance to obtain land by draw. The first lottery took
place in 1805 and was followed by others in 1807, 1820, 1821, 1827, and
two in 1832. All Georgia citizens were eligible to qualify for a lottery,
although the 1830, 1827, and 1832 lotteries gave special consideration to
war veterans. Published lottery books are excellent sources for
pinpointing where a Georgia family lived when a lottery was held. Land in
the following counties was distributed by lottery: Appling, Baldwin,
Carroll, Cherokee, Coweta, Dooly, Early, Fayette, Gwinett, Habersham,
Hall, Henry, Houston, Irwin, Lee, Monroe, Muscogee, Rabun, Troup, Walton,
Wayne, and Wilkinson.
A... After land was granted by the state, the owner could transfer or
dispose of the property as desired.  Record of subsequently property
transfers was made at the county level by the clerk of the superior
court.  Copies of deeds and mortgages can be obtained from that office in
the respective counties.  The FHL has microfilm copies of many county
land records.@
