Camden County Wills, Estates, Marriages, World War I Records

Orange Hall in St. Mary's, GeorgiaThe first known residents were the Mo coma Indians, a predecessor to the Creek confederacy which controlled this land until 1763. On San Pedro Island the Spanish built two missions and had a presidia, at least for a while. By 1690 the Spanish mission was gone but this county was dangerously close to St. Augustine Florida and the site of the Spanish fort which ruled the country until 1745 when General Oglethorpe of Georgia won the land war against Spain. Throughout the colonial period, the Spanish converted local Indians to Catholicism (called "Spanish-Indians" and used them for raids against the Georgia colony. Two parishes were created during Colonial days, the Parishes of St. Thomas and St. Mary in 1765, from the Creek Land Cession of 1763. This country played a vivid history during the American Revolution, with Loyalists escaping into Florida via the St. Mary's River. After the Revolutionary War, it was one of the "Original Counties" which were created in the 1777 and was named for Charles Pratt, the Earl of Camden, who was a strong supporter of American Independence. During the 19th century some of the Loyalist traitors returned to Georgia to reside in Camden County. Researching the census records for Camden County reveals persons born in Florida and Georgia. Researchers should consider bordering Florida counties as a source of Will Book B was burned.
