      To His Excallancy Edward Telfare Governor and Commander in
      Chief in and over the state of Georgia

      We your humble Petitionors do once more presume to beg from
      your mercyfull hands, some protection for our Disstress'd
      women and Children, as their Lives With our own are daly
      Expos'd, to savage Barbarety. It is not long since we ware
      Leaping with Joy, by reason of the Encouragment You gave us,
      Even went as far as to pass an act for our Relief, with the
      Aprobation of your Honnor, and the particulars Came back to
      us in the publick papers, and from all this Encouragement,
      we have embodyed our helpless famelies and Stood Sentry
      Around them, Impatiently waiting your good aid and
      assistance, as we thought as assurance of it, but Alass what
      is the the Last Account lamentable indeed to people in our
      situation the former orders Countermanded by Your Honner.
      What Cou'd be worse to our feelings than this or what must
      be the Concequence, Why, Undoubtedly Death must be the fatal
      Concequence; if not by Tommehock(then) by famine for when
      our Small stake of Provisions that we are Hudled round is
      Exausted where is the Support of another year why none maid
      nor any likelyhood of makeing, We further wish if it be your
      Good Pleasure to inform us who or what person or persons
      have been the Instigation of Removeing Your Good Will from
      our Relief, it must Certainly have been some ill minded
      person or Raskill that have self Interests in View, & Not
      feeling for the innocent Fronteers, but their Reward is
      pointed out and the black Account of Murder Stands Charg'd
      Against them.

      Since Mr. Wofford Started Last to Augusta with the Talke of
      the Noted Villain Shuagee, their has been a Number of Horses
      taken by the Indians from our fronteer Settlements, five of
      which ware taken from his fort, & an Abundance of Indian
      Signs seen by our Spies Which we have to keep at at Our Own
      Exspence Whilst the fronteers of South Carolina are well
      garded with men and Sufisient Supply of every nesecery of
      Life & all at the Publicks Exspence where their Nesessity is
      none in Comparison to Ours.

      Three Companies of Horse men would be Sufisient to Gard our
      Fronteers, Stationed in three Different Places, one at a
      place known by the Name of Bowens Place, another at Norrises
      Place & a third at the Corokee Mountain; at each of those
      Places their is a Sufisiency of winter food, to support
      their Horses, with a Careful Conductor

      Shou'd it Please Your Excellancy to Grant Our Request we
      shall try to Stand Our Ground, Other Ways we must of
      Necessity fly for our Lives, The Western fronteers of
      Franklin Cty.

    • 1790 Census, Franklin County GA

      Franklin County was created by a Legislative Act on February 23, 1784, from lands ceded by the
      Cherokee and Creek Indians. The land was given by Bounty Grants to Veterans of the
      Revolutionary War. What was later to become Clarke County was part of Franklin County at the
      time. This is a reconstructed 1790 Census so it is incomplete.
