GROSS MAPS OF CROWN GRANTS OF ST. MATTHEWS PARISH OF COLONIAL GEORGIA

 

The late Arthur Gross, a native of Screven County, Georgia, who knew  intimately the area that was St. Matthews Parish in Colonial times, mapped out Crown grants made in the parish.  I find the maps of his I've seen personally interesting to me because they pinpoint locations of the grants of my Braddocks and Cooks  and show who their neighbors were. However, from seeing so many key names them, I find them of far more interest for making me aware of  what a hotbed of Colonial and Revolutionary history St. Matthews Parish was.  

I am indebted to Carole Drexler, Dot Hope, and Dale Reddick from whom I received copies of the maps.

Bird Sylvanus    

Married Dinah Stafford March 4, 1768 in Ebenezer Church .
http://www.lamartin.com/genealogy/stafford.htm
On the night of 27 Jan 1780, Sylvanus fled with John Hearn and his 2nd wife Margaret Bird (Sylvanus' sister) across the Ogeechee River to Sir James Wright's Plantation , where John Hearn (Harn), his wife, and the plantation overseer were killed by local American rebels dressed as Native American Indians.  Sylvanus was mortally wounded in that same attack, and he died of wounds a few days later.  It is not known if his wife Dinah was with him that terrible night when he was mortally wounded.  Also, as of this writing, it is not known if Sylvanus was truly an English Loyalist/Tory, or if  he was an unfortunate non-participant in the Revolutionary War who had too much to lose, i.e., a large 12,000 acre plantation that was surrounded by friends and neighbors who were prominent English Officials.
