History of Lowndes Co., GA p. 1, “In 1821 four settlers moved to that section of Ga which is now known as Lowndes County. The entire section was covered with pine forest and no such thing as “a settler’s clearing” was known before their coming: James Rountree, Lawrence Armstrong Folsom, Drew Vickers, and Alfred Belote. Each man brought his family and they made their journey in covered wagons. Each man selected his lot of land and proceeded to erect his modest home. Others soon followed. In 1825 it was decided to petition the legislature to create a new county.”

Some Folsom/Armstrong info that I got from Ramona Vickers of Sebastian, Fl

Lt. William Folson s/o Israel Folsom & Kezziah, b. 1745 Prince William, Va, d 1785 Burke co. Ga.
m. Sarah Armstrong d/o Lawrence Armstrong & ___?
b. 1750 N. C., D. 1820 Screven Go. Ga. m 2ndRobert Burton
Children: Lawrence Armstrong Folson, Benjamin, Abigail, Elizabeth, Sarah Folsom

Lawrence Armstrong Folson s/o Lt. William and Sarah Armstrong b. 1772 V, d 11 Apr 1842 Lowndes Co. Ga. Grew up in Burke Co., Ga.
m. Rachel Vickers , b ca 1769 N. C. d. 18 Dec. 1849-this according to Huxford. However, Huxford shows Rachel preceding her husband in death but the above does not show that.

From my records:
Jefferson Co. Ga
1801 Petit Jury
Ebenezer Folsom, John Vickers, Henry Beaty, James Beaty
1802 Petit Jury- Wm. Beaty, Samuel Beaty, Needham Bryant

Pulaski co. Ga, Petit jury 6-1812
Needham Bryan, Jonathan Vickers, Lawrence Folsom, Christopher Edwards, Reubin Roundtree, Patrick McGriff

Voting List, May 2, 1831 Miccosukee, Leon Co., Fla
Stephen Vickers
Nov. 5, 1832-Miccosukee- N. B. Folsom, Ebenezer Folsom, Nathaniel Folsom
May 6, 1833-Needham B. Folsom
Nov. 2, 1831 Miccosukee-Needham Bryan Folsom, Ebenezer Folsom

I have not been able to place Needham B. Folsom and Ebenezer into one of the Folsom families but they could be children of Benjamin Folsom who was supposed to have gone West -he a brother of Lawrence Armstrong Folsom.

There a passel of these folks who are intermarried.

I think some of the Hendleys went into Tattnall Co where they married into some familes who were early settlers in Concord area of Gadsden, and in lower Decatur Co.

Just sent this along as I found it in a notebook, packed in a box behind where I am sitting at the computer.
