Many Barbour County citizens came from Georgia. Crawford County,
Ga., Mt. Paran Primitive Baptist Church minutes are now online at:
I found my family and other surnames common to
Barbour County listed in the minutes.

Where are these
I have no real
information, but I have a picture of two graves which my
grandfather, Counce Monroe Hancock, identified as the graves of his
grandparents, Josiah Hancock and Mary Goolsby Hancock. The graves
are in Barbour County, but he did not know the exact location and
was unable to travel there during his lifetime. I'm hoping to locate
them some way, and perhaps you can help me. Anna
|Barbour County was created on 18 Dec. 1832, from former
Creek Indian territory and a portion of Pike County. Its boundaries were altered in 1866
and 1868. The county was named for Virginia Governor James Barbour.
Barbour County is located in the southeastern section of the state, bounded on the
east by the Chattahoochee River and the State of Georgia. The county seat was established
in Louisville in 1833, and moved to Clayton in 1834. Today Barbour County contains two
courthouses - one in Clayton and one in Eufaula. Neighboring areas:

Please send any information you have on this home and the cemetery
I have had several different stories
on this home some say it is the old Shorter mansion while other dispute
that. I guess we will have to do a land search to determine the true
history of this old mansion. Whoever it belonged to, it is simply
a beautiful home and a shame to be in the condition it is in. This
would make a lovely Bed and Breakfast
3/27/2006 I just received the news
the property has been sold and will be divided into lots. What a
shame! Does anyone know about the cemetery?
