I would like to communicate with anyone connecting to any of the people in these deeds. Especially Samuel Crow and spouse, Susannah, maiden name unknown, both born between 1770 and 1780, where?, and probably died in lower Hall Co. GA's Robert's GMD 413, Shoal Creek area, on the Chattahoochee River. Today, this area of Hall Co. is mainley under Lake Lanier. Samuel Crow is believed have lived in Spartanburg Dist. SC c1795-????, Elbert, now Hart Co. GA before c1814-c1818, Franklin Co. GA c1818-c1827, Bryant Park area, near Franklin Springs, and Hall Co. GA c1827-????. Randolph Crow is reported to have lived nearby in the Sandy Cross area of Franklin Co. Some have reported that Samuel and Randolph Crow were bothers, and that may well be correct. I have not found any proof though, and those that report this relationship, have not produced any documentation proving same. Any help and information will be appreciated.
