Settlers from the Blue Ridge Mountains into Georgia

Blue Ridge MountainsThere was a group of settlers from the old State of Franklin who came to Georgia during the late 18th century. They were from the mountains of North Carolina in Burke and other counties which later became Tennessee. The reason is unknown, unless it was due to troublesome Indians throughout the Blue Ridge Mountains. They mostly came to Washington, Georgia (Wilkes County) and settled there. Most of those families who settled in the Blue Ridge Mountains before 1800 had traveled the well-worn Wagon Road out of Pennsylvania westward. They were Germans and Scotch-Irish immigrants.
