SOURCES:
1. Colonial Soldiers of the South 1732 - 1774 by Murtie J. Clark G.P.C. 1986 Elias Wallravin a Lieutenant in Oglethorpe's

private soldiers drafted from 25th regiment or foot and others recruited in England, they arrived in Georgia 1738.

NOTES:
1. I believe that the above information is two different Elias Wallraven because I don't think if he came to Georgia in 1738 a
s an Lieutenant that in 1760 he would have been a private.
2. In Elias petition on Nov. 1, 1768 for 100 acres of land in St. Paul's Parish for his service, he states that he had been in
the Province (Georgia) for 15 years. (This would mean that he arrived about 1753, not in 1738 as the above states he came as a Lieutenant)
3. John Walraven, Sr. is found in Abbeyville district just across the River from Elias in 1790.
4. THIS DOES NOT PROVE THAT ELIAS WALRAVEN WAS THE FATHER OF JOHN WALRAVEN, SR.
BUT IT PUTS BOTH OF THEM IN THE SAME PLACE AT THE SAME TIME. MORE RESEARCH IS NEED ON THIS. ===============================================================
