When the 1930 Emanuel County census was taken on 19 April, Byron was a boarder in the Summit home of Itha Sutton and her children -- Claude E., Annie, and Kate.

64 Caleb Bruce BOATRIGHT (Stephen Thomas3, Reubin2, Daniel1), a son of Dora Logue and Stephen Thomas Boatright, was born on 10 February 1887 in Emanuel County, Georgia. He was named as a son, aged 13 years, in his parents' household in the 1900 Emanuel County census, as aged 23 years in the 1910 census, and as aged 33 years in the 1920 census. He also was listed as a surviving son in his mother's 1936 obituary and in his father's 1950 obituary. In addition, he was listed as a surviving brother in Ethel Boatright Mondy's 1947 obituary, Frances Boatright Barfield's 1953 obituary, Mathew Lewis Boatright's 1953 obituary, and Ernest Stephen Boatright's 1958 obituary.

Bruce registered for the World War I draft on 5 June 1917 in the 1560th GMD, Emanuel County. His draft registration card provided the following information: Caleb Boatright; age 30; post office address: Rt. 1, Swainsboro, Georgia; born 18th? February 1887; natural born citizen; born in Emanuel County; occupation: farming, employed by M. L. Boatright, Swainsboro; single; signed Caleb B. Boatright; physical description: medium height, medium build, green eyes, light hair, not bald; no physical disabilities.10 He entered service on 16 July 1918 at Fort Screven, Georgia. He served in 1st Co., C.A.C. Coast Artillery and was discharged 11 December 1918 at Fort Screven.

He married Mattie Elma Flanders on Sunday, 16 October 1927, in a small wedding ceremony at Elma's parents' home in Johnson County, Georgia. She was born on 17 October 1904 in Johnson County, the daughter of Elizabeth Deliah Stapelton and Benjamin Young Flanders.

They lived with Caleb's parents after their marriage and were recorded in that household in the 1930 Emanuel County census as follows: Bruce, son, age 43, age 41 when first married, could read and write, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia, farmer, general farm, self-employed, was working at time of the census, was a veteran of World War I; Elma, daughter-in-law, age 25, age 23 when first married, could read and write, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia; and, Joyce, granddaughter, age 11 months, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia.

Apparently Bruce moved to Augusta, Richmond County, Georgia, about 1937. That year the Augusta city directory listed Caleb as a resident of 562 Broad Street and his occupation as a shipping clerk at Merchants Baking Company.

His move to Augusta was not permanent at that time and he returned to Emanuel County by 1940. When the 1940 Emanuel County census was taken, Caleb and family were living on a farm in a rented house on which they paid $7 monthly rental. The census provided the following details: C. B. Boatright, head, age 53, married, completed three years of high school, born in Georgia, lived on a farm in rural Emanuel County on 1 April 1935, was not working the week of 24 March, unable to work, had no source of income in 1939; Elma Boatright, wife, age 35, married, completed seven grades of school, born in Georgia, lived on a farm in rural Emanuel County on 1 April 1935, was at work the week of 24 March, worked 50 hours the week of 24 March, farmer, worked on own account, worked 52 weeks in 1939, had no wages in 1939, had other sources of income in 1939; Joyce Boatright, daughter, age 11, attended school, completed seven grades of school, born in Georgia, lived on a farm in rural Emanuel County on 1 April 1935; and, Oris Boatright, daughter, age 6, attended school, completed one grade of school, born in Georgia, lived on a farm in rural Emanuel County on 1 April 1935.

At the April 1941 meeting of Hawhammock Church "Bro Bruce Boatwright was given the right hand [of] fellowship and was united with the church." He became an active member and was chosen as a delegate to association meetings.

At sometime between 1950 and 1953, they moved once again from Emanuel County to Augusta. They were listed in the 1955 through 1960 Augusta city directories. They apparently remained permanent residents because a 1977 social note in the Swainsboro newspaper noted their visit from Augusta to see relatives in Emanuel County.

Bruce and Elma had two daughters:

i. Betty Joyce BOATRIGHT
ii. Peggy Oris BOATRIGHT

Caleb died in Richmond County on 25 August 1968 and was buried at Hillcrest Memorial Park.

Elma still resided in Augusta after Caleb's death. She was recorded in the 1980 Augusta City Directory as residing at 2149 Crosley Street; she was retired.

The information provided by the census included the following: Rustin Boatright, head, age 29, married, completed tree years of high school, born in Georgia, lived in the same place on 1 April 1935, was at work the week of 24 March, worked 48 hours the week of 24 March, carpenter, building construction, paid wages, worked 25 weeks in 1939, earned $450 in wages in 1939, had no other source of income in 1939; Bessie Boatright, answered census questions, wife, age 29, married, completed three years of high school, lived in rural Emanuel County on 1 April 1935, engaged in housework, worked 3 weeks in 1939, had no other source of income in 1939; Marjorie Boatright, daughter, age 6? months, born in Georgia; and, James Sutton, step-son, age 11, attended school, completed four grades of school, born in Georgia, lived in rural Emanuel County on 1 April 1935.

Rustin and family moved to Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida in 1942 and became a firefighter. They were recorded in the 1945 Florida state census living in Tallahassee, Precinct 6, of Leon County as follows: C. R. Boatright, South Gadsdon Street, age 34, born in Georgia, 8th grade education, fireman; Mrs. C. R. Boatright, age 35, born in Florida, 10th grade education, housewife;
Margie Boatright, age 5, born in Georgia.

They had two children:

i. Margie Jean BOATRIGHT
ii. Bobby Drew BOATRIGHT

Rustin died in Tallahasse on 19 July 1982 and was buried in Rose Lawn Cemetery.

Bessie died on 24 May 1997 in Tallahassee and also and was buried in Rose Lawn Cemetery.

74 Cora BOATRIGHT (John3, Reubin2, Daniel1), the eighth child of Nancy Deal and John Boatright, was born on 8 March 1894 in Emanuel County, Georgia. She was named as a daughter, aged 6 years, in her parents' household in the 1900 Emanuel County census, and as aged 15 years in the 1910 census.

She married Jesse James Snipes on 5 November 1911 in Emanuel County, Georgia. He was born on 27 August 1891 in Emanuel County, son of Ella Lucinda Wiggins and James Snipes.

Jesse registered for the World War I draft in the 1333rd GMD, Emanuel County, on 5 June 1917. His draft registration card provided the following information: Jesse James Snipes; P.O. address, Canoochee, Emanuel Co.; age 26; born 27 Aug. 1891; occupation: farmer, employed by Mrs. J. E. Coleman, Emanuel Co.; had dependents; married; no previous military experience; physical description: medium height, slender build, gray eyes, dark hair, and slightly bald; signed his name "Jesse James Snipes."

In the 1930 Evans County, Georgia census, the following information was recorded: Jessie J. Snipes, head, rented home, lived on a farm, age 39, married first at age 20, could read and write, born in GA, parents born in GA, Missionary Baptist minister, wage earner, was working at time of the census, was not a veteran; Cora, wife, housekeeper, age 36, married first at age 18, could read and write, born in GA, parents born in GA; Nellie, daughter, age 16, attended school, could read and write, born in GA, parents born in GA; Virgil, son, age 14, attended school, could read and write, born in GA, parents born in GA; Clyde, daughter, age 12, attended school, could read and write, born in GA, parents born in GA; Ruby J., daughter, age 6, attended school, born in GA, parents born in GA; Barnie, son, 4 years and 3 months, born in GA, parents born in GA; and, Soloman, son, 8 months, born in GA, parents born in GA.

Cora and Jess had twelve children:

i. Infant SNIPES, born & died 26 May
1912 in Emanuel County, GA
ii. Nell SNIPES
iii. Virgil Eugene SNIPES
iv. Clyde SNIPES
v. V. J. SNIPES, b. Dec. 1919, d. 5
November 1920 in Emanuel Co., GA
vi. J. B. SNIPES, b. 23 Sep 1922; d. 8
Dec 1922 in Emanuel Co., GA
vii. Ruby Jewel SNIPES
viii. Barnabus SNIPES
ix. Hortense SNIPES, b. 13 May 1927 in
Emanuel Co., GA; died 20 May 1928
x. James Soloman SNIPES
xi. Grace SNIPES
xii. Syble Joyce SNIPES

Cora and Jesse were members of Hawhammock Church and he served as its pastor in 1931. The church minutes of 28 August 1931 read: "Suggestion made that we go to Bro. J. J. Snipes home on acount of Sister Snipes ill health to receive her in the Church." Both Cora and J. J. were granted letters of dismissal on 26 July 1936.

Cora died on 10 October 1936 in Candler County, and was buried in Hebron Cemetery, Garfield, Emanuel County.

Jess married again to Lila Mae Stevens on 7 January 1940 in Bulloch County, GA. She was born on 20 November 1921.

He died 10 August 1963, and was buried in Savannah, Chatham County, Georgia. Lila died on 15 April 1990. Both were buried at Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah, Chatham County, Georgia.

77 Daniel BOATRIGHT, ca. 1760?-1812/8?

When and where Daniel Boatright was born is unknown, and his parentage remains even more uncertain. The Reubin Boatright Family Bible, purportedly the oldest extant family document, sheds no light on these basic items of personal identification.

There are at least five published opinions on Daniel?s origins. The most widely circulated and most quoted of these publications is the work of Folks Huxford, a judge and professional genealogist. He asserted that Daniel, the ?? Revolutionary War ancestor of a number of Wiregrass Georgians, was born about 1740 and as thought, in South Carolina. He was a resident of Beaufort District, S.C., before moving to Georgia.?

An anonymous opinion also was given in a newspaper article honoring Daniel as a Revolutionary soldier. The article stated:

Daniel Boatright was born in Cumberland County,
Va., fighting in Georgia during the Revolution in
battles in and around Savannah and Sunbury. After
the war he settled in Burke which was cut into
Emanuel when the county was formed in 1812.

Brooks Blitch III, a descendant of Daniel, citing the research of Miriam Thomas Hickman, offers a third possibility. He stated:

Daniel Boatright was born in Virginia between
1760-1762. He lived in Buckingham and Cumberland
counties, as did his brothers, Reubin, John,
Charles, and William. His father, John, and his
grandfather, William, also lived there. William
Boatright, the grandfather of Daniel Boatright R.
S., was born in 1713.

Reflecting the words of Blitch, Robin Boatright Merrill has written:

Daniel Boatright was born in Cumberland County,
Virginia, in 1762. As a young boy of about 15 or
16, Daniel was recruited by Captain John Mosby of
Virginia to join a company, made up in Virginia, to
march to Georgia to fight the British who were
over-running Georgia. He was engaged in battles in
and around Savannah and Sunbury.
After the war, Daniel Boatright settled in
Georgia....

Another widely circulated opinion, by Norman Hurd Ricker and William E. Boatright, is that Daniel was born in 1745 in Beaufort District, South Carolina, a son of Margaret Dyer and Thomas Boatwright Sr. According to these researchers, Daniel had three brothers: William, born 1725 in Hanover County, Virginia, and died in Chesterfield County, South Carolina; Thomas, born 1735 in Hanover County and died 30 July 1802 in Chesterfield County, South Carolina; and, Lewis, born 1741 in Hanover County, and died in Marion County, South Carolina.

Furthermore, these researchers state, with some uncertainty, that Daniel?s ancestry was as follows:

Daniel?s parents were Margaret Dyer and Thomas
Boatwright Sr. She was born in 1725 in Virginia and
died after 1776 in Chesterfield County, South
Carolina. Thomas Jr. was born in 1705 in New Kent
County, Virginia and died 16 August 1776 in
Chesterfield County. They married in Virginia about
1725.
Thomas Boatwright Sr. was a son of Sarah Dyer
and John Boatwright III. Sarah was born in 1701 in
York County, Virginia, a daughter of Mary Taylor
and William Dyer. John III was born 1680 in
Virginia and died in New Kent, Virginia. They
married about 1701.
John Boatwright III was a son of John
Boatwright Jr. and Elizabeth. John Jr. and
Elizabeth were married in 1676 in Virginia. She was
born 1646 in England, and died in Virginia. John
Jr. was born 1635 in Fressingfield, Suffolk County,
England, and died after 1704 in Virginia.
John Jr. was a son of Elizabeth Cropley and
John Boatwright Sr. They were married 10 December
1632 in St. Mary the Great Cathedral, Cambridge,
England. She was born 1610 in Cambridge, England.
John Sr. was born February 23, 1607 in
Fressingfield, Suffolk County, England.

Yet other opinions are widely circulated through the internet. George Boatwright has a website, The Boat(wright) Family Genealogy in America, that deals with a number of Boatright/Boatwright families. He states that ?our? Daniel was born about 1762 in Hanover County, Virginia and died 1818 in Emanuel County, GA. He married Margaret Braswell about 1789 in Burke County, GA. According to his website, Daniel had the following children: Betsey, born 1790; Mary, born 1791 and died 9 March 1877 in Monroe County, Alabama; Reubin, born 14 February 1794 and died 13 December 1878; Permelia, born 1797, married Daniel Hall; Nancy, born 1800; Charles, born 1805; and, John, born 1806.

Much of what he says about Daniel has been said by many others. He, however, states that Daniel was a son of John Boatwright IV who was born about 1702 in New Kent County, Virginia and died about 1775 in Hanover County, Virginia. His wife has not been identified.

George Boatwright continues Daniel?s ancestry as follows: John Boatwright IV was the son of John Boatwright III and Sarah Dyer in 1701. John III was born about 1680 in Virginia and died at an unknown date and place. Sarah Dyer was born about 1683, the daughter of Mary Taylor and William Dyer. The rest of his information duplicates that of Norman H. Ricker, as cited above. He does add the following:

There is no conclusive evidence that Daniel is the
son of John. It is my best guess is that Daniel
fits into John's line, due to DNA testing that has
eliminated many of the other Virginia Boatwright
lines as possibilities. Additional DNA testing may
resolve the question of how Daniel fits into the
other Boatwright family lines.

Which of the above propositions is correct, or if any is, remains to be documented more fully. None of the publications provide adequate source materials or citations for a proper evaluation and analysis of the assertions.

A Daniel Boatright served as a private in the 2nd Georgia Continental Battalion, Co. B, during the Revolutionary War. The National Archives? military service files indicate that Daniel Boatright was on a payroll and his ?Pay has been drawn to the 1st January 1779.?

A Danl. Boatwright was enlisted in Captain John Mosby?s Company on 18 December 1776. He was entered on that company?s pay roll, which dated from 22 August 1776 to 1 April 1777.

Although the ?Georgia? Daniel died before pensions were made available in 1820, Joseph Terry, of Patrick County, Virginia, applied for his pension on 11 October 1832. He was a private and was included with Daniel on the 1 April 1777 and the 1 January 1779 pay lists. Terry made the following statements in his pension application:

? he enlisted in the army of the United States in
the year 1775 the October after he was fourteen
years of age with Capt. John Mosby who was attached
to the 2nd. Regiment Commanded by Col. Alberd. he
was a resident at the time of enlistment of the
County of Buckingham and State of Virginia, and in
December following he with other recruits march?d to
Cumberland old Courthouse. Jacob Winfree was 1st.
Lieutenant, John Clark 2nd. and Robert Mosby ensign
to the said Company. About three weeks after that
the Company marched from Cumberland Old Courthouse
through the State of North Carolina & South Carolina
to the Town of Savannah within the State of Georgia,
and was there attached to the 2nd. Regiment above
stated under the Command of Col. Elberd and to the
Brigade of General Howe where we remained in and
about 12 months when the 2nd Regiment was ordered by
the commanding general to march to Florida in order
to dislodge the British from St. Augustine which
they then held possession of. That they pursued
their march till they arrived within sight of St.
Johns river, where they were met by an express
informing them that the provision ships which had
been sent on to meet the Regiment were all captured
by the enemy. They then retreated back to Savannah
and suffered very seriously for provisions having to
pass through wilderness Country where rations could
not be procured. They however got back.

The pension application of Thomas Baker also includes a description of his service which is similar to that of Terry?s. Baker states that he:

enlisted a soldier for the term of three years on
the 16 day of October 1776 in the State of Virginia
at Cumberland Court house, for the State of Georgia
by Captain John Clarke, & transferred to the Company
Commanded by Captain John Mosby in the Regiment
Commanded by General Samuel Elbert; in the Second
Company Second Regiment, Georgia Battalion in the
line of the State of Georgia, on the Continental
Establishment. That he continued to serve in the
same Corps until two years, & one day from the date
of his first enlistment under Mosby; and then he
enlisted during the war at Augusta in the State of
Georgia under Captain Hancock (Mosby having resigned
& died and Col. Stirk commanding the Regiment in
which he last enlisted). That he continued to serve
under the same Colonel, until the Colonel was killed
between Savannah and Sunbury, & under his successor
Colonel Brown until the End of the War. ? That he
was in the battles of Savannah, Stono, Altamahay, in
two battles at the same place, Fort Toney on St.
Mary's River, Amelia Island, Carney's Cowpens,
Ebenezer, and many other places: That he saw Colonel
Scrivener or Scriven shot down, & also Captain
Winfield & also Captain Dogwood. He further states
that he received a wound at Golphin's old Fort on
the Savannah River in the left leg.

If the ?Georgia? Daniel Boatright is the same as the Daniel who served in the 2nd Georgia Continental Battalion, then the above pension applications lend credence to the supposition that Daniel was born in or around Cumberland County, Virginia. Norman H. Ricker, however, believes that the Daniel Boatright who served in the 2nd Georgia died in Cumberland County about 1797.

It also is possible that Daniel served in the South Carolina militia because a Daniel Boatwright was paid by the State of South Carolina on 27 October 1785 for 80 days of militia duty for a total of five pounds, fourteen shillings, three pence, and half penny sterling. The Roster of South Carolina Patriots states that Daniel Boatwright ?... served under Capt. John Chesnut in the militia and was at the fall of Charleston.?

There is at least one other published account of Daniel?s Revolutionary War service. Arnold and Burnham state that Daniel ?Enlisted in 1779 in the 3rd Continental Battalion commanded by Lt. Colonel John McIntosh. He also served in Captain John Chestnutt?s Company of the South Carolina Militia and was at the fall of Charleston.?

It is certain that Daniel served during the Revolutionary War because his widow was to participate in the land lotteries as a widow of a soldier. This will be discussed in more detail later.

There, however, remains an additional military record for Daniel, but whether it is for Junior or Senior is unknown. On 5 November 1812, Daniel Boatwright ?Gentleman? was commissioned by the Governor as Ensign of the 49th district company of the militia.19 The 49th district was in Emanuel County when it was formed in December 1812.

The earliest record I have found of Daniel being a resident of Georgia was a headright warrant of 200 acres of land in Burke County ?adj?g Lands of Thos. Chisolm & Benj. Brach.? The warrant was issued by Thos. Lewis, the Senior Justice of Burke County, on 4 December 1786. It was surveyed on 24 May 1787 and the plat noted that the warrant was issued to Daniel Boatright ?(who already resides in this State).?

The Act of 22 February 1785, under which Daniel was granted the land, allowed a man to take up 200 acres upon his own headright, plus an additional 50 acres for each member of his family. Since Daniel received a grant of 200 acres, it is reasonable to assume that he was single and had no children or slaves at the time he made application for the warrant. On this basis, it is likely that Daniel was present in Georgia by 1785 even though the grant was not made until 1788.

The 1785 land act also required no purchase price for the land, even though office fees and survey fees were levied. This provision opened up land settlement to many who could not afford the purchase of land, particularly younger men who were less likely to have accumulated wealth. If the South Carolina Daniel and the Georgia Daniel are the same individual, the payment received by him on 27 October 1785 for his South Carolina militia duty could have been used to pay office and survey fees on the land in Georgia.

On 5 December 1791 Daniel received a headright warrant in Burke County for ?A tract of land which shall Contain, Two Hundred ???.. Acres, in the said County of Burke, Adjoining land formerly Surveyed for Cader Vineing & Hartsfield, on Harvey?s Mill Branch in lieu of a Warrant heretofore granted him for the Same quantity of Acres (on Rocky Branch).? No record of a previous warrant on Rocky Branch has been located, so it is probable that it was destroyed as required by law. The warrant was surveyed on 14 August 1792 ?for Daniel Boatwright who lives in This State.? The tract of land was located ?on a branch of Duharts Creek bounded northward by land of Vineing and Vacant land Northeast by unknown land, Southward by Survey.d land and Westward by land Supposed to have been survey.d for Hartsfield?.? The warrant was advertised and certified on 4 September 1792. This land lies in present day Jefferson County, northwest of Louisville, near the juncture of State Route 88, on Louisville Road.

Daniel was married to Margaret Braswell, reputedly about 1786 in Burke County, Georgia. This date fits well with the headright grant. It is possible that he applied for the warrant prior to his marriage, thus qualifying for the 200 acres.

Margaret is said to have been a daughter of Rhoda and Kindred Braswell (also a Revolutionary War soldier). The Reubin Boatright Bible and Huxford stated that Margaret was born in 1768. In addition, Huxford stated that Margaret might be Reubin?s second wife based upon the disparity of their ages. However, I have not located any record that substantiates the 1740 birth date Huxford attributed to Daniel, nor any evidence that he had another wife. On the contrary, if Daniel had been married previously and if he had children, I suspect that he would have gotten a larger grant of land ? unless, of course, any children by a first wife were adults by 1788.

The names and numbers of Daniel and Margaret?s children also are points for disagreement among the Reubin Boatright Bible and Huxford, as well as between various applicants for membership in the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution. The various attributed children are as follows:

The Reubin Boatright Bible names children:
Daniel Jr., Sarah, Reubin, Mary, Betsy, Charles,
Nancy, and John.
Huxford names children: Reubin, Permelia,
Charles, and Nancy.
Miriam Thomas Winsryg and Iris Faircloth
Blitch name children: Daniel Jr., Reubin, Betsy,
Mary, John, Charles, and Nancy.
Robin Boatright Merrill names: Charles, Nancy,
John, and Reubin.

According to the above sources, nine individuals have been identified as children of Daniel. Of these nine, only four have a creditable circumstantial or documentable relationship:

i. Reubin BOATRIGHT Sr.
ii. Charles BOATRIGHT
iii. Nancy BOATRIGHT
iv. John BOATRIGHT

The other reputed five children, Daniel Jr., Sarah, Mary, Betsey, and Permelia, are discussed in separate histories. Basic information on these individuals is introduced and evaluated. The author?s conclusions for stating that they are not children of Daniel Boatright are presented with the hope that future research will present more conclusive evidence as to their parentage.

On 31 December 1794 Daniel Boatwright, of Burke County, bought a tract of land comprised of 200 acres on the Great Ogeechee River in Effingham County from Joel Rees, also of Burke County. At that date Effingham and Burke Counties were adjacent, so it is possible that the purchased tract was near the 1788 land grant. It also is of interest that the Old River Road, which paralleled the Ogeechee River, was the site chosen by many early settlers migrating into Georgia.

Daniel next is recorded among the Burke Countians who, in 1795, signed a petition protesting the Yazoo land frauds. He then received another land grant of 200 acres in Burke County in 1797. This last grant might have been made because of his marriage and subsequent children. Tax records also record him as owning one slave and living in ?Waynesborough,? Burke County in October 1798.

Daniel also served as a jailer (or gaoler) in Waynesboro, Burke County from 30 April 1796 through at least 3 March 1798. This position as a jailer was noted in the The Augusta Chronicle and Gazette of the State in a series of legal notices dealing primarily with run-away slaves. Daniel also had custody of a number of murderers, horse thieves, and other prisoners while he was jailer. Several of these prisoners made at least three attempts to escape from jail. Some of his experiences were noted in The Augusta Chronicle which recorded Daniel?s testimony at the trial of John Hume Menderson in the Burke County Superior Court on 11 March 1797.

In reference to Daniel?s serving as a jailer, it seems to me that such an occupation would support a birth date closer to 1760 than the 1745 date. Such an occupation, requiring vigorous activity at times, would be more in line with that of a younger man.

On 27 September 1798, Daniel, of Burke County, purchased 100 acres in Bulloch County ?formerly Effingham? from James Mizell and his wife Eleanore of Bulloch County. This tract also was located on the Ogeechee River. It is possible that the above mentioned Burke, Effingham, and Bulloch land parcels were contiguous.

Daniel was elected Coroner of Burke County and received his commission from Governor James Jackson on 21 October 1799. On 18 February 1799, the General Assembly appropriated $29 for his services as coroner of Burke County, so he must have being serving as coroner prior to his commission.

Daniel was still residing in Bulloch County by 1802 because the records show that he, Daniel Boatwright, witnessed a sale of land from Mark Lott to James Oglesby on 27 November 1802. Then, on 21 March 1803, Daniel purchased another 200 acres in Bulloch County from David Mizell and his wife Sarah of Bulloch County. This land was located in Bulloch County adjacent to and on the south side of the 1798 purchase, and also was bounded by lands of Mizell and Lotts. These purchases indicate that Daniel probably was staying in the same area, or the Mizell and Lotts families also were moving around with him. The first proposition is more likely correct.

Daniel then exercised his right to participate in the 1805 Georgia land lottery, but drew two blanks in this effort to obtain more free land. His residence was given as Bulloch County in extant lottery records, which meant that he was located in Bulloch County between May 1803 and 1 March 1804. The fact that he was entitled to two draws in that lottery indicates that he was married and/or had a child or children under the age of 21 years of age.

On 28 June 1805 Daniel Boatwright, residence unstated, was on a list of letters remaining in the Savannah Post Office.

His residence still was in Bulloch County by 3 December 1805 because he was a witness to a sale of land by Thomas Mikell, of Bulloch County, to Sharrod McCall, also of Bulloch County. The records next show that Daniel Boatright was a purchaser of articles at John Kirkland Senr.?s estate sale on 1 May 1806.

Daniel was elected Sheriff of Bulloch County on 15 October 1805 and received his commission from Governor John Milledge on 19 November 1805. He still was Sheriff of Bulloch County in 1807, as is indicated by a sale of land by Daniel in his position as sheriff. He also placed a number of advertisements in Georgia newspapers with notices of property auctions to satisfy debts.

It is reasonable to assume that Daniel was able to read and write in order to carry out the functions of the various offices he held. Indeed, the 1807 deed executed by Daniel as sheriff, indicates that he signed his name. He also was still receiving letters in the Savannah post office in October 1810. Since schools were infrequently established in the South and a reliance was placed on hiring tutors, the significance of Daniel?s literacy might be helpful in separating him from other individuals with the same name, as well as indicating a social status for him and his family. The fact that he held these two offices does indicate a fairly high standing in the community because at that time both offices, particularly Sheriff, had more influence and social standing than generally is recognized by today?s society.

The extant Emanuel County land records do not indicate any purchases or sales of land by Daniel himself ? only a sale by the administrator of his estate ? but court house fires destroyed many Emanuel County records. It also is difficult, if not impossible, to determine if he had sold the Burke County land because a court house fire destroyed the pre-1860 Burke County records. If Daniel retained all of the land received by grant or through purchase, he would have had a total of over 1400 acres. The absence of adult sons and/or a number of slaves to work the land mitigates against his retention of such large holdings unless he had the means to pay taxes on the land. Yet, his personal property revealed in estate records provide no clues to a possible occupation other than farming, and even that appears to have been small-scale. We are left to wonder if Daniel could be counted among the numerous Georgians who were involved in the NASDAQ of that day ? land speculation. The probabilities are that he used the land as cowpens and/or for timber related purposes. Both types of land usage were very common in the ?pine barrens? area at that time.

Huxford states that Daniel died in 1812 based upon Margaret?s appointment as guardian of their two minor children, Charles and Nancy, on 3 September 1812. However, I have not been able to locate this record. If we set aside the 1812 Ensign commission mentioned previously, the absence of Daniel?s name in extant post-1812 records seems, at first blush, to support the 1812 death date. However, a 1818 time frame for his death is supported by Emanuel County court records. A court record of 7 September 1818 authorizes James Walea, Administrator of Daniel?s estate, to make an inventory of the estate. The appraisal of his personal property was made on 17 October 1818.

Under Georgia?s laws in effect at the time of his death, Daniel?s estate would have been divided equally between Margaret and his children unless Margaret chose to retain her dower rights. If she chose the dower right option, she would have received a third of the land. I have not located any land records that indicate a formal partition of Daniel?s land among his heirs, but 500 acres was sold in 1821 to Thomas Kent by James Walea as Administrator of Daniel?s estate. The sale raises additional questions about the amount of land Daniel owned at his death, how the proceeds of the sale of the 500 acres were distributed, and whether or not all of the heirs were living in 1821. Also, the estate sale might indicate that some of the children had reached the age of majority which might have required the sale to settle their inheritance. Much more research needs to be done to assist with possible answers to these and other questions.

The estate records also indicate that Daniel and his family were ?middle-class? for that day and place because among the items sold were a shotgun, a mare and colt, a looking-glass, and bed. The other items sold, such as a loom and ?ploughs,? are typical of life in a very rural southern community at that period of time.

Daniel?s burial place is no more certain than the date of his death. According to family stories, he was buried on his farm in a plot by the Savannah road near Herndon, east of McKinney's Pond. The exact location of his grave is lost from memory. A memorial plaque commemorating his Revolutionary War service was placed at Hawhammock Church, near Swainsboro, on 27 June 1993.

After Daniel?s death, Margaret was listed as head of household in the 1820 Emanuel County census. Although the 1820 census lists numbers of individuals in age categories for members of the household rather than individual names, the oldest female probably was Margaret since she is listed as head of household. Her age in the census is given as 45 or older, indicating birth prior to 1775. Given the published marriage date of 1788, the birth of her son Reubin in 1794 and the birth of John, the youngest child, reputedly in 1812 or 1818, Margaret probably was born between 1760 and 1770. The Reuben Boatright Family Bible states that she was born in 1768.

Included with Margaret in the 1820 census was a male between 10 and 16 years, a female under 10 years, and a female between 16 and 26 years. When dealing with possible secondhand information from the census, particularly during these early years, we deal with much speculation. We can assume that the three individuals enumerated with Margaret were three of her youngest children. However, all of the age categories do not match the birth dates reported in Huxford?s publications, nor in the Boatright Bible.

Margt. Boatwright (Widow), a resident of Military District 49 (located in the northeast corner of present-day Emanuel County), was a fortunate drawer in the 1820 Georgia Land lottery and received land in Irwin County. What happened to this land? It should be noted that her son Reuben paid taxes on land in the 11th district of Irwin County in 1841. This is another area of research to be pursued.

The 1821 land lottery offers an additional bit of confusion and a tantalizing possibility because a Margaret Boatright (Widow), a resident of McClendons Military District in Laurens County, had two successful draws for land in Dooley County. In addition, Charles and Nancy Boatright, orphans of Daniel Boatright and residents of the same place, had two successful draws in the 1821 lottery: one in Fayette County and the other in Monroe County. Is it coincidence that the names of Daniel and Margaret appear together in the same place? Was this another family in Laurens County with the same names? Since Margaret was a fortunate drawer in the 1820 land lottery, she should not have been qualified to draw lots in 1821. In addition, under the law of the time, the orphans of Daniel were eligible to draw only if they were minors and the father and mother were dead. If the birth dates of Charles and Nancy are correct as they appear in the Boatright Bible, their ages would have qualified them for the lottery. However, if their mother was still living, they could not be orphans. Given the fact that Margaret was not located in the Emanuel County 1830 census, it is possible that she and the three children had moved to Laurens County while Reubin remained in Emanuel County, but this does not explain why she was able to participate in the lottery again if the two records are for the same individual. Research in the land records of these counties might provide additional information.
Margaret Boatwright paid annual taxes in 1824 as a resident of Emanuel County. She definitely was a resident of Emanuel County at that date because state law, until 1847, required that taxes be paid in the county of residence.

Huxford also states that Margaret drew land in the 1827 land lottery ?as the widow of a Revolutionary Soldier.? The Official Register of Land Lottery of Georgia 1827 does indicate that Margaret Boatright, of Emanuel County, was a fortunate drawer on 10 May 1827. She received land in Captain McGars District (No. 224, District 14) in Lee County on 10 May 1827 at the 56th day?s drawing. The notation ?w. R. S.?, meaning ?widow of a Revolutionary Soldier,? on the record indicates that she was just that. However, the original records, housed at the Georgia Department of Archives and History, need to be examined to make certain that the notation was part of the original record. Another needed area of research is to determine if any other Lee County land records can be tied to Margaret and/or her children. Nancy Boatright, a resident of the 57th District, Emanuel County, orphan, also drew a successful lot (No. 194, District 3, Section 4, Coweta County) in the 1827 land lottery.72 Charles Boatright, a resident of Corkers District, Burke County, also drew a successful lot (No. 105, District 2, Section 5, Carroll County).

In addition to the above land lottery records, a Margaret Boatwright, a resident of Wilkinson County, was a drawer in Georgia?s 1832 Gold Lottery for land in District 20, Section 3, Lot # 821. This individual is probably not the Emanuel County Margaret because a note beside her name stated that her husband was absent ? not deceased. This record also adds to our belief that there was more than one Margaret Boatright living in that area of Georgia at the same time.

Margaret was not located as head of household in the Emanuel County 1830 and 1840 censuses. However, in the 1840 census there was a female in the 70-80 year old category enumerated in the household of Reuben Boatright; it is possible that this was his mother Margaret. It is interesting to note that there were only seven females of that age category in all of Emanuel County in 1840. Whether this statistic helps with increasing the probabilities of identification remains for future research. However, the DAR application papers of Miriam Thomas Winsryg Hickman state that Margaret died about 1830 and the Boatright Bible gives her death date as 1838. Huxford states that Margaret died about 1840 and was buried beside her husband.
 
Daniel BOATRIGHT
 
78 Daniel D. BOATRIGHT, son of Lacy Bishop and Reubin Boatright, was born Friday, 28 September 1827 in Emanuel County, Georgia.

He married Eady, daughter of Needham Bryant, on 8 November 1849 in Emanuel County. The marriage was performed by Alexander Atkinson, JP.

Eady was born Wednesday, 31 December 1834 in Emanuel County.

In 1850, the family was listed in the Emanuel County census as follows: Daniel D. Boatright, age 22, farmer, $240 value of real estate, born in Georgia; Eady, age 16, born in Georgia; married within the year. They were living next to Needham and Society Bryant, Eady?s parents.

Daniel paid 59.7 cents for 1851 taxes for one poll and 304 acres of land in the 59th district of Emanuel County. The land was located on Fountain Branch, adjoining lands of Overstreet, on land originally granted to Bryant.

Daniel was the Tax Collector in Emanuel County in 1854. This position was noted in The Southern Recorder.

The 11 September 1855 issue of The Southern Recorder included notice of an Emanuel County Sheriff?s Sale on Daniel?s property. The sale was to be held at the Courthouse on the first Tuesday of November 1855. The notice stated:
... will be sold one tract of land containing
244 acres, more or less, and also 56 acres,
more or less, in Emanuel County, adjoining
lands of John Overstreet and Needham Bryant,
and also Daniel D. Boatright?s interest
in two other pieces in Early County,
one-fifth of five hundred acres, one in
the 11th District and the other in the 26th
District of Early county; and also 22 head
of stock cattle, and also one sorrel mare:
all levied upon as the property of Daniel D.
Boatright to satisfy one fi fa issued in
the Interior Court of Emanuel county, in
favor of the State vs. Daniel D. Boatright
John Durden, D. Sh?ff
September 11, 1855

In 1857 and 1858, Daniel was deputy sheriff in Emanuel County as evidenced by several Sheriff Sales legal notices in the The Federal Union. Most of the notices were notices of sales for debt on real estate, but there also were sales on livestock, as well as at least one slave.

By the time of the 1860 census, the family was recorded as follows: D. D. Boutright, age 33, farmer, $600 real estate, $400 personal estate, born in Georgia; Eady, age 26, born in Georgia; Mary A., age 9, born in Georgia, attended school within year; Nancy S., age 4, born in Georgia; and Elmira J., age 6 months, born in Georgia.

Daniel enlisted as a Private in Co. G, 54th Regiment Georgia Infantry on Sunday, 6 May 1862 at Savannah by Capt. Green for a period of three years. He was transferred to Co. C on Saturday, 1 September 1862 by Special Order No. 6. He appears on a receipt roll for clothing on 28 April 1864 as a Corporal.7 He was wounded at Kennesaw Mountain, Georgia June 15, 1864.

As was true with many of the Boatright families in the 1800s, Daniel and Eady were members of the Primitive Baptist Church. The Old Canoochee Baptist Church records report that on 2 December 1865 Daniel was appointed to a committee to draw up the plans for a new church and then on Saturday, 1 September 1866, the ?baptist church of Christ in conference on motion Recd ... D. D. Boatwright and Eady Boatwright by Experence of grace.? D. D. was chosen as an alternate delegate to the association conference on 3 August 1867, 2 August 1868, and 3 August 1872. He also was appointed on 30 November 1867 and on 4 September 1869 to serve on committees to cite other members for wrongdoing; on 1 June 1872 and 28 February 1874 to visit with members; and on 5 December 1874 he was appointed to serve on the Standing Committee. On Saturday, 4 July 1874 Daniel was elected deacon.

Daniel was included on the 1867 returns of qualified voters under the reconstruction act. The return shows that he took the oath of allegiance and registered to vote on 8 July 1867 in the 59th precinct of Emanuel County. On the same day he took the oath ?to support the Constitution and obey the laws of the United States, and will to the best of my ability encourage others to do so.?

In the 1870 Emanuel County census, the family included: D. D. Boatright, age 43, farmer, born in Georgia, $500 real estate, $200 personal estate; Eda, age 38, born in Georgia; Nancy S., age 14, born in Georgia, attended school within year; Josephine A., age 10, born in Georgia, attended school within year; Wm. E., age 2, born in Georgia; and Eliza M. Wallace, age 7, born in Georgia.

By 1880, the census included: Daniel D. Boatwright, head, age 52, farmer, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia; Eady, wife, age 47, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia; Willie E., son, age 12, works on farm, attended school with in year, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia; Lillie L., daughter, age 6, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia; Eliza M. Wallace, niece, age 18, parents born in Georgia. Next door was Needham Bryant Sr., Eady?s father.

Daniel and Eady had the following children:

i. Mary A. BOATRIGHT
ii. Nancy S. BOATRIGHT
iii. Elmira Josephine BOATRIGHT
iv. William E. BOATRIGHT
v. Lillie L. BOATRIGHT

Daniel died Friday, 21 December 1884 and was buried in the cemetery at Old Canoochee Church where he had been a member. Eady was left with two minor children, William and Lillie, to rear by herself and the court set aside a portion of Daniel?s estate for a year?s support.

At the time of the 1910 census, Eady was included in the household of Bessie R. Jones as follows: Eady Boatright, companion, age 60, widow, mother of five children of whom two were living, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia, could read and write.

By 1920 Eady was living with her daughter Josephine in Chatham County and was recorded in the 1920 Chatham County census in their household, as follows: Annie Boatright, mother, age 91, widow, cannot read and write, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia.

Eady died Wednesday, 8 September 1920 and was buried in Old Canoochee Church Cemetery beside Daniel. Her tombstone inscription reads ?Wife of D. D. Boatright.?

Annie was born on 6 April 1891 in Emanuel County. Annie, in addition to being step-mother to Byron, Dan's oldest son, became his sister-in-law when Annie's sister Kate Sutton married Byron. Byron, Kate, and Annie probably became well acquainted with each other when Byron was a boarder in the Sutton home. The family connections were to grow even closer when Kate's and Annie's brother, Claude E. Sutton, married Byron's sister, Essie Mae.

88 Doyce Wylene BOATRIGHT, a daughter of Kate Jordan and William Lee Boatright, was born on 30 April 1922 in Emanuel County, Georgia. She was named as a grandson, aged 7 years, with her parents, in her grandfather Boatright's household in the 1930 Emanuel County census. She also was named as a daughter, age 17, in her parents? household in the 1940 Emanuel County census. In addition, she was named as a surviving daughter in her father?s 1972 obituary and in her mother?s 1995 obituary.

She married first Dallas Ransom Cobb Jr. in October 1943 in Dade County, Florida. Dallas was born on 20 November 1920 in Miami, Dade County, Florida, a son of Vera and Dallas R. Cobb.

Doyce was recorded in the 19th Precinct of Dade County, Florida during the 1945 Florida census. She and Dallas were living with his parents at 910 SW 4th Avenue in Miami.

89 Drucilla BOATRIGHT, the tenth child of Lacy Bishop and Reubin Boatright, was born 20 July 1845 in Emanuel County, Georgia. She was included in the 1850 Emanuel County census as age 4, and in the 1860 census as age 14 in her father?s household.

She married Andrew Jackson Rich, son of Daniel E. and Eunisa Rich, on 20 October 1865. He was born 25 January 1845.

A. J. was a Private in Co. C, 54th Regiment, Georgia Volunteer Infantry, and served with his brothers-in-law, John and William Boatright. He entered the service on 18 February 1864, but spent some time in the Floyd House and Ocmulgee Hospitals at Macon with the mumps and typhoid fever. He was released from the hospital at the close of the war, on 27 May 1865. In much later years, he applied for and received a pension from the state of Georgia for his military service.

In the 1870 Emanuel County census, the family was enumerated as follows: Andrew J. Rich, age 24, born in Georgia, farmer; Drewsiller, age 24, born in Georgia; Esther W. N. N. J., age 4, born in Georgia; Laura E., age 2, born in Georgia; and Mary F., age 3 months, born in Georgia.

In the 1880 census, the family was listed as follows: Andrew J. Rich, age 35, farmer, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia, cannot read and write; Drucilla, age 34, wife, keeping house, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia, cannot write; Easter M. L., age 13, daughter, attended school within year, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia; Laura E., age 12, daughter, attended school within year, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia; Mary F., age 8, daughter, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia; Alice M., age 8, daughter, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia; Jerry J., age 6, son, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia; Lucy L., age 4, daughter, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia; and Ralph J., age 8 months, born October, son.

By the time of the 1900 census, the family included: A. J. Rich, born January 1845, age 55, married 34 years, born in Georgia, father born in VA, mother born in Georgia, farmer, owns farm, can read but cannot write; D. R., wife, born July 1846, age 54, mother of eight children, seven are living, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia, cannot read nor write; C. L., son, born April 1882, age 18, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia, farm laborer, could read and write; and Lacy, granddaughter, born April 1884, age 16, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia, house keeper, could read and write.

One puzzling entry in the 1900 census is the presence of Lacy Rich, listed as a granddaughter, age 16, born in April 1884. Only three of Drucilla?s children were old enough in 1884 to have become a parent: Easter, Laura, and Mary. At this date, I have found no other reference to Lacy and, for the time being, she and her parents remain a mystery. In addition, one child had died by 1900 and the inference is that it was Ralph since he does not appear in his mother?s 1914 obituary.

In 1910 the family was recorded in the census as follows: Andrew J. Rich, age 66, married 43 years, farmer, could read and write, born in Georgia, father born in Miss., mother born in Miss.; Drusilla, wife age 63, mother of 8 children, 7 living, born in Georgia, father born in South Carolina, mother born Georgia, cannot read nor write; and Claudie A., granddaughter, age 12, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia. Claudia probably was the daughter of their son Jerry J. and his first wife.

According to the 1900 and 1910 censuses, Drucilla was the mother of eight children, seven of whom were living at that date. The memorial from Hawhammock stated that she was the mother of nine children, seven of whom survived. It is unlikely, given her age in 1900, that she had any children after 1900. Seven children are mentioned in her obituary: Easter, Mary, Alice, Jerry, Lucy, Charles, and Nora. The children, therefore, are identified as follows.

i. Easter M. L. RICH
ii. Laura Lula RICH
iii. Mary ?Mollie? Frances RICH
iv. Alice Missouri RICH
v. Jerry Jeffero RICH Sr.
vi. Lucy Lenora ?Nora? RICH
vii. Ralph J. RICH
viii. Charles Luther RICH

Both Drucilla and A. J. were members of Hawhammock Baptist Church. A. J.?s membership was of sufficient standing in the church to be named a delegate to association meetings and to be elected to the office of church doorkeeper. However, their association appeared not to be totally satisfactory because on 23 August 1913 A. J. requested a letter of dismission for himself, Drucilla, and their granddaughter Claudie. His request was tabled and at the 26 September meeting, he withdrew the request. He continued his association until after Drucilla?s death when he was expelled. Church minutes are lacking in details about reasons for the expulsion, but it takes little imagination to recognize the disruption to various individual Boatright and allied families created by the process. On 13 October 1915 Matthew Brinson Boatright preferred charges against his brother-in-law and the motion to expel Jack carried. The expulsion was set aside by Matthew ?for praying for Sister green at this church during union meeting.? At the 28 November 1915 meeting, it was decided to reopen discussion of Jack. There was nothing in the following minutes to expand on what was discussed, nor of any resolution taken. A notation beside his name on the 1905 membership roll simply indicated that he had been expelled. However, on 23 July 1927 he was restored to full fellowship.

Drucilla died 23 May 1914 in Emanuel County, and was buried in Hawhammock Cemetery, Swainsboro, Emanuel County.

After Drucilla?s death, A. J. married Nancy M. Hayes in Emanuel County on 24 February 1916. They were listed in the 1920 Emanuel County census as: Jack Rich, head, age 75, cannot read nor write, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia, farmer, general farm; and, Nancy, wife, age 66, could read and write, born in Georgia. They probably remained in the Swainsboro area because a social item in a 1931 newspaper noted that ?Mr. Jack Rich spent Sunday in Valdosta.

The 1930 Emanuel County census recorded them as follows: A. J. Rich, head, rents, $1000 rental, lived on farm, age 86, age 20 when first married, cannot read and write, born in Georgia, father born in Tennessee, mother born in North Carolina, veteran of the Civil War; and, Nancy, wife, age 76, age 17 when first married, could read and write, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia.

A. J. died in Emanuel County on 20 May 1933.21 Although Andrew?s tombstone at Hawhammock Cemetery has no death date, his obituary indicated that he was buried there.

Nancy applied for and received his Civil War pension after his death. She died in Emanuel County on 11 February 1936.
