FATHER OF ASA REID

George A.8 Reid II (George A. I7, Alexander6, Andrew "General"5, Alexander4, Andrew3, Andrew2, John1)97 was born November 27, 1774 in Rowan Co., N. C., and died December 13, 1853 in Bremen, Carroll Co., Georgia. He married Jane (Mary?) Gaston 1796 in Greene Co. Georgia, daughter of Matthew Gaston and Ann Simonton. She was born January 08, 1777 in Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania, and died Aft. 1860 in Bremen, Carroll Co., Georgia.

Notes for George A. Reid II:
George Reid (1773 Rowan Co., NC 12/12/1853 Carroll Co., Georgia) son of George Reid of Ireland, volunteered as a private in 1792 GREEN CO., Georgia for the duration of Wayne's War against Creek and Cherokee Indians. He continued actively in military service for four years, guarding forts and scouting after Indians.
"George Reid, Gentleman at Arms" is one of forty-six names on an "original muster roll" 2/25/1794 of a militia troop of dragoons organized in Greene Co. "to protect settlers from repeated invasion of indians" This troop was to become famous in the annals of Middle Georgia. This roll is almost a complete roster of prominent families of Greene Co. George Reid moved from GREENE CO. to JACKSON CO. Georgia and subsequently represented the latter in the Georgia legislature in 1798, 1804 and 1817. He was justice of the peace in Jackson Co. in 1801. When Gwinnett Co. was formed in 1818, it took that part of Jackson Co., where George Reid resided. He was appointed Justice of the Inferior Court of Gwinnett Co., Georgia 2/2/1819-1821. He served in the legislature as a Senator from Gwinnett Co., Georgia in 1819, 1820-21 and in the extra session of 1821. In 1822, while a resident of Gwinnett, he was granted by the state 597 1/2 Acres of "headright" lands in Jackson Co.; however, he moved to Carroll Co. soon after it's formation in ca. 1827. George Reid married 1796 in Greene Co., Georgia JANE GASTON, b. 1776 in Georgia, daughter of Matthew and Ann (Simonton) Gaston. Jane, as a widow, resided in Carroll Co., Georgia on 3/17/1855.

From History of Gwinnett Co., Georgia

1794: (source Spring and Summer of 1794 AUGUSTA CHRONICLE)
A series of attacks on William Melton of Greene Co., who had been a Captain in the Greene Co. Militia were published. Judging from the articles, Melton must have taken undue credit for his prowess as an Indian fighter, so much so that George and Alexander contributed the following:
Dated May 17 1794 & July 12 1794.

"I call upon the State to judge what Greene men can do When torn by factions, party men and their leaders too;
We then all combine as one to effect their hellish plan, Promoting Tories, knaves and fools to break down honest men.
They oft times in committees meet to know what best be done. To execute their dark designs before they can be known. Behold Tom---n fits as judge to hear what they propose. And if by chance an honest man, He answers, "He's no friend of ours"
If so be we should elect a man in whom we can confide to execute the plans proposed Our power will soon be laid aside, then no longer should be judge nor you no more secure They antics than will you insult the militia will be raised in more.

1798: George served in the Georgia State Legislature from Greene Co. He received 597 and 1/2 acres of head right lands in Jackson Co. George received from the United States, 40 acres of bounty land (warrant # 42663) for service in Waynes War, his widow Jane Gaston Reid, received an additional 120 acres. (Warrant 14390)

Jan 12 1801: George is named Justice of Peace in Jackson Co.

1803: (source: Cherokee Indian Agency Pass Book) "George Reed and Alexander Hall have permission to pass from hence to Jackson Co. in the State of Georgia, through that part of the Cherokee Co. in the direct route to that place, taking care to make no infraction of the Laws & Regulations adapted to the Government & the Indian Department.

Georgia Militia and later receiving a commission on February 26 1813 as Captain of the Volunteer Troop of Dragoons, 8th Squadron and 4th Reg. of Cavalry. A payroll preserved in the Georgia Archives Military Record Book 1779-1839 states "Pay roll of a scout of men under the command of George Reid, Capt. of the Cavalry of Jackson Co. in the service of the state of Georgia by orders of Major Tandy Key Comdt. 25 Red. Georgia Militia for seven days furnishing their own horses, provisions, forage, arms, and ammunition commencing the 14th Nov. and ending the 19th same month including both days."

Among the thirteen men assigned to George were Rhesa Reid and Samuel Reid. At the bottom of the payroll is written, "I certify on honor the above is a true return subscribed the 8th day of July 1814." Signed: George Reid, Capt. Cavalry, Jackson Co..

Mar 30, 1814 Honorably discharged at Ft. Harrison

1819-1821: George is now in Gwinnett Co. (formed from Jackson Co. in
1818) He was Justice of Inferior Ct. of Gwinnett Co, Georgia from Feb 2 1819 to 1821. He also served as Senator from Gwinnett in sessions of 1810-21 and a special session in 1821.

1826 George moved to Carroll Co. where in this year he was employed as a surveyor to help set the boundary lines between Georgia and Alabama. On Jan 22 his party was accosted by a group of Indian who took their compass and instruments and forced them to leave the area.

One of the men in the group wrote Governor Troup:

"They threatened me very serverly if I should be caught over Bright's line again surveying. I have come on the McIntosh's old place and have stopped my hands until I hear from you...provisions is scarce and my hand uneasy to go home. As to the number of men it will take to guard me, I am unable to
say...There are three settlements of Indians in my district, that have in them about 10 men and in two miles on the Alabama side...there is forty to fifty warriors...who are to be placed on the treaty line as spies....

1860 census shows George and his younger children living close to each other, including Matthew, son in law John Hamilton, Isaac Wiggington, and Charles Norman. Those sons who remained in Gwinnett Co. were Asa Rhesa and George III.

1830: George is found in Carroll Co. with his younger children living close to one another. They include, Matthew, son in laws John Hamilton, Isaac Wiggington, and Charles Norman. Those sons who remained in Gwinnett Co. at this time were Asa, Rhesa, and George III.

Quoted from Lillian Reid Gray, (daughter of William David Garfield Reid and Laura Jane Burton) 1702 Cedar Crest Dr., Abilene, Texas 79601. George, son of George Reid of Ireland, volunteered as a private in 1792 in Green Co., Georgia for the duration of "Waynes War" against Creek and Cherokee Indians. He continued actively in military service for four years, "guarding forts and scouting after indians" (Georgia Bounty Land Warrants #42663 and 14390.). George Reid, Gentleman at Arms is one of forty-six names on an "original muster roll" 25 Feb 1794 of a militia troop of dragoons organized in Green Co. "to protect settlers from repeated invasion of Indians" (Georgia's Landmarks, Memorials and Legends, L.L. Knight, Vol. 1 (Atlanta, GA: 1914), pp633-634. and White's Historical Collections of Georgia, Rev. George White, (NY: Pudney & Russell, 1855), p483quoting Columbus (GA) Enquirer-Sun, 1836, Gwinnett Co., GA Memorials.) This troop was to become famous in the annals of middle Georgia. This roll is almost a complete roster of prominent families of Green Co., Georgia. George moved from Green Co. to Jackson Co. and subsequently represented the latter in the Georgia legislature in 1798, 1804 and 1817 (The Early History of Jackson Co., (GA) G.J.N. Wilson, pub. by W.E. White, 1914, p330). He was Justice of the Peace in Jackson Co. in 18901. When Gwinnett Co. was formed in 1818, it took in that part of Jackson Co. where George Reid resided. He was appointed justice of the Inferior Court of Gwinnett on 2 Feb 1819 to 1821. He served the state legislature as Senator from Gwinnett in 1819, 1820-21 and in the extra session of 1821. In 1822, while a resident of Gwinnett, he was granted by the state 597.5 acres of "headright" lands in Jackson Co.; however, he moved to Carroll Co. soon after its formation in 1827

In January of 1853, shortly before his death, George provided evidence in suport of his application for bounty land. As a part of the evidence he presented an original commission to "George Reid, Esq." issued to him by Gov. David Beltchel of GA in which he was designated Captain. It stated that he was honorably discharged at Ft. Harrison on Mar 30, 1814. "The Journal of the Movements of the Army under General Adams by George Reid" made in his own handwriting and on several loose sheets was presented as further evidence. It stated in part, "Arrive at camp Patriotism Dec. 6; lay there until 105h, about four miles this day, crossed the Ocmulgee, camped at bank; left at 9 o'clock 11th; marched 15 miles through level country; crossed Big Towaligia; camped 1 hour by sun; struck Camp 12th about day break; marched 23 miles through long leaf pine, mixed level; crossed the Little Towalagia and Potato Creek; camped 1/2 hour by sun; 15th struck camp by day break; crossed Flint River about 1 o'clock and camped. Tolerable good land." A second sheet stated, "Camped S. of Ocmulgee 10th , struck camp 14th about sunrise; marched about seventeen miles through broken land but tolerably strong; 15th struck camp, marched about 10 milees and crossed the Chattahoochee at the burnt village about 11 o'clock; march about (?) miles; camped, rained all night and next day; 16th struck camp at 10 o'clock; marched 23 miles, burnt a couple of little villages, marched 6 miles and camped three miles of Okfinokee Town; heard Indians whoop, lay on arms all night without fire; struck cammp 1/2 hour by sun in the morning, marched 3 miles and burnt the town on Tallapoosa River of about 80 houses, some corn; saw a quantity of Indians on the other side of the river.
