Summary: In August 1804, John Williamson Sr. deeded 350 acres on Curry
Creek to son, John Williamson Jr. Along the north fork John Jr. ran a
grist mill. In June 1821, John Sr. deeded three slaves to his son
William; six to the children of son, Adam; and eight to the children of
John Jr.-all conditional on the elder man's death. A rift had developed
within the family over these matters, and the separation of the older
couple. John Sr. moved briefly to Gwinnett Co., then c.1826 to Butts Co.
GA, to #250/8D., land won in the 1821 Lottery. Wife, Margaret(Peggy)
Williamson remained in Jackson Co. with bachelor son, William. John Sr.
died in Butts Co. in October 1831. John Williamson Jr. served as co-
executor(with son, Nathan)inheriting the bulk of the estate, primarily
livestock & slaves in Butts Co., and any remaining property in Jackson
Co. Nathan C. Williamson received the Butts land(600 acres)through his
grandfather's will. He had moved to Butts Co in late 1830, or early 1831.
His father had given him a horse, bridle, saddle, and $300 cash; money,
that Nathan and Lesley had earned on the 1830 cotton crop-saying, he
would make up Lesley's share! In Jackson Co. John Jr prospered. By
February 1849, he had over forty slaves, and had completed a "fine" new
mill-saying, that his children would benefit from it. His supposed will
slighted the older children, and was immediately contested by by sons-in-
law; James B. Nabors(et al), Wm. D. Appleby, O.M. Lowry; and sons, Andrew
J. and Jasper M. Willamson. After numerous delays, the will was set aside
in Jackson County Superior Court-August 1853. An appeal to the GA Supreme
Court failed. Dr. Crawford W. Long's testimony was among those cited by
Justices in their summary. Administrators posted an $80,000 bond, a 2nd
inventory was made, land and slaves were sold in Oct '54/Jan '55; but,
still, it was carried to a Court of Equity in Jackson Co. Finally, after
agreeing to arbitors, distributions were made in late 1857/early 1858!
