    Lundie W Barlow's Howell File
    Lundie W Barlow's Howell File
    Letter from Lundie W. Barlow describing the Howell line starting with Matthew Howell of Isle of Wight County, Virginia who died 1720, to McKinne Howell of Halifax County, North Carolina. Total includes 19 pages of transcribed letters, deeds and will abstracts and notes. From Sidney Howell's collection provided by Jim Brittain, Jr. Sections for surnames: Cavanah, Johnson, Howell,

  • Notes 
    • Note from Knights Roster of Georgia Revolutionary Soldiers: "John Johnson - fought at the battle of Kettle Creek." 

      Notes from Wikipedia: The Battle of Kettle Creek was fought on February 4th, 1779, in Wilkes County near present day Washington, Georgia. It is one of the most important battles of the American Revolutionary War ot be fought in Georgia.  The victory by the Patriots virtually ended the movement by the Loyalists to remain loyal to the Kingdom of Britain.

      Extract from Revolutionary papers in the Georgia State Archives, Atlanta, Georgia:

      "This is to certify that the bearer, Captain John Johnson of the first Battallion of Richmond County Militia of the State of Georgia, served as a reffugee and bore the rank of Captain, who took an active part in the fite & performed his duty of a good and faithful soldier.  Given my hand at Pigeon Hill the 17th of march 1764 (A) Jas. McNeil, Colonel"

      "To the Honorable President: Your petitioner, John Johnson, prays for land agreeable to the within Certificate and in Washington County (A) John Johnson"

      Note from Lundie W. Barlow on above: "Washington County, Georgia, was established 25 February, 1784 from Indian lands; Greene County was established, 3 February, 1786 from Washington County, and included that territory which later became Hancock County."

      LBSH chart notes:

      "..a Rev. Soldier Hancock, Georgia between Sparta and White Plains."

      From "History of Greene Co., GA":

      p. 34 "When Greene Co. (GA) was first organized in February 1786 there were quite a number of settlers who had moved in, and secured land grants while theis territory belonged to Washington County, therefore, the names of Greene's earliest settlers do not appear on the following list." 

      The list mentioned above is called "Head Rights Granted to the Citizens of Greene County", begins p. 35, and shows name, acres granted and year granted. The Johnsons (relationship to this John Johnson unknown) that appear on the list are (cronological order):

      William Johnson 150 acres Ogeechee River, 1787
      William Johnson, 280 acres Ogeechee River, 1788 William Johnson, 50 acres, 1789
      John Johnson, 72 acres, Beaverdam Creek, 1798

      From Mary Jordan (RootsWeb, Greene Co. board):

      "John Johnson served in the Revolutionary War and his widow received land in the land lottery."

      "John Johnson's widow received a land grant for his service in the revolutionary war."

      Lundie Barlow notes:

      "Note from the minutes of White Plains Baptist Church: John Johnson and Elizabeth Johnson, charter members of this church, organized 1806, White Plains, Georgia."

      "John Johnson, in his will dated 13 December 1814, bequeathed to his wife, Elizabeth Johnson, six negro slaves including Peter and Mariah."

      "Note from page 174 of Houston's reprint of Eligiblees for the 1827 Land Lottery: Elizabeth Johnson, widow of a Revolutionary Soldier, Hancock County, Georgia" [8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17]
