Additional Notes

Eleanor Davis included the following notes concerning John A. Tharp, born Sept. 1, 1781. He and his wife ELIZABETH Hatcher A. THARP came to Twiggs County with his father in 1811. They joined Stone Creek Baptist Church in Feb. 1811. In the Church Records he is referred to as John A. Tharp Jr. to distinguish him from John A. Tharp Sr., who came at a later date and may have been his uncle.

At the time that John was a member of Stone Creek Church the Church sat in judgment on its members. If someone disobeyed any rules he was brought before a committee for trial. If he expressed sorrow for his actions and asked forgiveness he was reinstated but if not, he was excommunicated. John got into trouble for fighting and was called to account at a Church Conference. He refused to say that he was penitent so he was excommunicated from the Church.
John A. Tharp and Elizabeth Hatcher A. Tharp had a number of children. He made a will before his death and it is filed in the Bibb County Court House. He named a number of heirs that are his children.
