1807. Lot 219 for 202.5 acres located in the tenth district of Wilkinson County near the center of Georgia, possibly near Irwinton. The survey shows a north trending river at the center of the lot, possibly identified as the “Little Ocmulgee River” Lines on each side of the water seem to indicate possible placer gold. Surrounded by pine forest. The lot was won by Lenos Bronson. THis would have been near Irwinton, south of Milledgeville. The date of the survey is March 6th, 1807, signed by Georgia Governor John Forsyth in 1828, the year of the great gold discoveries in Georgia. Signed by John Bethune as surveyor general and the surveyor William Lott, as well as the surveyor general PM Compton. The two documents, the deed and survey, are in excellent condition with almost no problems, excepting a small stain in the right margin. The documents are very sound and exemplary. This is from the first period of Georgia land lotteries. (Al Adams Gold Rush Memorabilia Collection) Date: 1807 Location: Wilkinson County, Georgia HWAC# 57037
