      According to Richard III's petitions for grants, he was in Georgia as early as June 1765. He seems to have acquired 700 acres at the junction of Rocky Comfort and Duhart Creeks, about 4.5 miles from the present day town of Louisville in Jefferson County.

      Deeded land to the Richard Jr in a land swap between the two involving land in Lunenberg and Halifax Counties. Now, this was in 1759, the papers are abstracted in Carlos' book (although I actually found the notes someplace else in my folders on the Cody family). These would be from loose papers, 1750-1764 Prince Edward Co. VA, Chancery Court.

      Probably he first went to North Carolina when he left Virginia. Around l765 he went to GA, near Augusta where he patented land. (Col. Rec. of GA, Vol. 9, p. 520, 6 Jun l766; Vol. 10, p. 478, May 1763; Vol. 10, p. 590, 17 Sep 1768).

      Abt., 1730 when Richard was 19, he married Ann CHILDERS (13) [1], daughter of Henry CHILDERS (10) (~1678-1726) & Lucretia JONES (~1680-~1727), in Henrico County, VA.[1] Born abt 1712 in Henrico County, Virginia. Ann died in Burke, Richmond County, Georgia. Alias/AKA: Nancy "Ann", or Ann Nancy, have seen it both ways.

      The Childers family moved along with the Allday and Womack families from Lunenburg County, Virginia before the Revolution to the Colony of Georgia, St. George's Parish, which is now the area of Burke, Richmond and Hancock Counties in the state of Georgia in and about Augusta.
