n 1913 the U.S. Forest Service started buying privately owned land in order to create the Chattahoochee National Forest. Because of unclear titles, it was necessary for the federal government to acquire much of this land through court proceedings. This book is a compilation of names, family relationships and other data found in the records of those proceedings. The genealogical data this process produced has not been found in any other records to date. Both the maiden and married names of many female family members can be found as well as county and state of residence for most individuals. Anyone who has ancestors who lived in the tri-state area of GA, NC, and SC in the early 1800s would be interested in this information. Over 6,000 names arranged in up to 6 generations of family genealogies are listed. 2001, index, 405 pp.
