Hall County Wills and Estates

Hall CountyGainesville storeGainesville storeGainesville storeGenealogists should research the Cobb, Cherokee, Floyd, Hall and Forsyth County records for ancestors in this section of Georgia, as many families travelled together, intermarried, etc. Hall County was created in 1818 from lands ceded by the Cherokee Indians on July 8, 1817 in the Treaty of the Cherokee Agency. Additional Cherokee lands were ceded to Georgia on Feb. 27, 1819 in the Treaty of Washington which included the western portions of Habersham and Hall counties. In 1820 a land lottery was held for lucky drawyers, which granted 250 acres of land. It was named for Lyman Hall (of Connecticut), one of Georgia's three signers of the Declaration of Independence.
