Liberty County Wills and Estates



Hinesville, Georgia Freedom's Cove Liberty County Land Liberty County Land Liberty County land Liberty County Land Liberty County Court House Many colonials who settled in Savannah also owned large rice plantations in Liberty County. Also, after General Oglethorpe removed the regiment to England in 1744, residents of Frederica began moving into Liberty. Liberty County, located in the southeastern portion of the state on the Georgia coast, was one of the seven Georgia counties created from the original colonial parishes on February 5, 1777. The Guale Indians inhabited that area from prehistoric times, and in the eighteenth century the tribe became a part of the Muskogee or Creek Confederation. The Spanish placed a mission on St. Catherines Island in the late sixteenth century among the Guale Indians. After General Oglethorpe left St. Simons Island, some of the settlers to Frederica removed into Liberty County, settling on large tracts of land grants. In 1752 after the Charter was surrendered, land was opened up to large parties and congregations for settlement. A group of Puritans from Dorchester, South Carolina (originally from Dorchester, Massachusetts) took up large land grants and developed communities such as Midway and Sunbury, a thriving Colonial port. In 1777, Liberty County was officially created.
