Names of Georgia Ancestors - - - > Henry County

Henry County Wills, Estates, Marriages

Locust Grove, Georgia

When tracing ancestors in Henry County, it is important to remember that this was the parent county for DeKalb and Fulton Counties. Therefore, those persons who drew in the 1821 Land Lottery may have gotten land as far North as Atlanta. The important thing to check for is the District and Land Lot Number as this will help narrow it down. Suffice it to say that in the days of Marthasville, people probably neglected to travel to McDonough to file their deeds, wills and other records. It is therefore prudent to also examine DeKalb, Rockdale and Fulton Counties for additional clues. Henry County was created in 1821 from Dooly, Houston, Monroe and Fayette Counties. It once comprised the City of Atlanta, then Marthasville, which is now known as Underground Atlanta, thus an inspection of the early land grants issued during the 1820's for Henry County also include today's Fulton County. Henry County's first superior court met on June 10, 1822 at the house of William Ruff. The first courthouse was built in 1823 on the town square of McDonough, but it burned soon thereafter. About 1831, a new brick courthouse was built in the public square, which served until the current three-story brick courthouse was built in 1897. The new courthouse was built across the street facing the public square, which became a park with a tall Confederate monument erected in the center. The courthouse was restored and renovated in 1980-81. In 2000, construction began on a new annex adjacent to the current courthouse.

BurlingtonBoone County was founded in 1798 and named after Daniel Boone. The county seat is Burlington, Kentucky. The court house records begin in 1800 and contain a complete record of old wills, estates, inventories, guardianships and other miscellaneous estate items all bundled together in the same book.
