Subject: [GA-Roots] David PORTER [CORRECTION]...
I in my old dottering age mispoke of David PORTER
instead of David COOPER as one of the signees with
Samuel BOSTICK in regard to the recall pertaining to
the great Yazoo Land Fraud. Sorry. I had read earlier
of PORTER and BOSTICK connection.
I was also in error by stating they were from Chatham
Co instead of Effingham Co GA. I believe I have been
in front of this boob box too long. Need a rest from
Those that did sign the petition are as follow:
John GOLDWIRE, Sr.
William KING, Sr.
William KING, Jr.
Rodger HODGES [his mark]
Daniel JOHNSON [his mark]
William THORNTON [his mark]
James TYSON [his mark]
R. H. HUGHES
Samuel SELLARS [repeat signature due to fouling of the
quill pen during the first signing. The first
signature was so blurred evidently no one saw a need
to draw a line through the first signature.(g) ]

NOTE: The Effingham Co GA document with these
signatures can be found in the Special Collections of
the UGA libraries in Athens GA.
Also note that several politicians were tarred and
feathered as well as hung. The mood of the population
was such that even murder was the order of the day.
All of the land sold to the four land companies that
bought land in what is known today as AL and MS was in
the courts as late as 1814 to about 1830. Wade HAMPTON
of SC was one of the backers to one company. James
GUNN was a primary stockholder in the GA company.
