Task: To Find Ancestors of Bluford Chaffin

Leonard Chaffin b. ca 1778/1794 in NC (1820 Wilkes County Census) and died 1820 in Wilkes County, Georgia, intestate. There is one record of him in the Wilkes County, viz: Annual Returns 1816-1822, p. 342 which book I have been unable to locate.**** 

Leonard enrolled in the War of 1812, taking his oath as an Ensign in the 168th Militia District on May 11, 1816. (Early Records of Georgia, Wilkes Co., Vol. II, p. 70-80). Leonard was married to Mary (Polly) Smith 23 January 1812 in Wilkes County and was listed as a legatee in right of his wife (Mary, called Zechie) of the estate of Nathan Smith in Wilkes County 11/6/1820.
