Genealogists should search in Heard, Haralson, Meriwether and Troup Counties, Georgia as families moved westward, afterwards leaving Georgia and going into Chambers County, Alabama (and adjoining counties) and Mississippi. Heard County was created in 1830 from the counties of Carroll, Coweta, and Troup. The court house burned in 1893, destroying all of the records.

The Trail of Georgians into Alabama
By Jeannette Holland Austin
Researchers of Heard, Carroll, Coweta and Troup Counties, Georgia need to consider the trail of emigrants into Alabama and Mississippi. Unfortunately, the records burned and genealogists have very little to work with. That is why the research should include its surrounding counties. Georgians led the trail into in Chambers and Limestone Counties, Alabama.
