Sherman and his men cut a path across Georgia burning and destroying everything on his push to the sea.. This was a tremendous loss to genealogists. Coupled with courthouse burnings and natural deterioration.
the old records continue to crumble and are gone like the wind.
We are in a race against time to get the old records recorded for the future generations. We need your help.  While researching take the time to gather a record that will help others and send the records  you have so others may benefit from them as well.  One will, land, deed, pension, marriage at a time and eventually we can have them all online.

Luke 6:38 - Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
 

I am Margie Daniels a Jasper County researcher and manager for Jasper County.  I am researching Henry Glover who is known to have been in Jasper County in 1839-40 and probably longer. The estate records  of his father John Glover in Crawford County Georgia listed Henry as living in Jasper County.  If you have any information on the Glover families or any families please send it to me and I will add them here.  Warmest regards....Margie Glover Daniels  margie@majorinternet.net

We are just moving into our new Jasper County site.  Bookmark this site and visit often as we will be adding marriage and other records.
