Additional Notes

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.

RE: Elizabeth Hatcher Tharp (NOT the daughter of Maj. John Hatcher)

. . .1826-27 estate sale records for John Davis of BibbCo, GA. On the list of buyers was Dempsey Hatcher, a proven son of Thomas Jr and Martha Hatcher and grandson of Thomas Sr and Wilmoth. Among the other buyers were various members of the Tharp family, one of whom was married to Elizabeth Hatcher, believed to be a daughter of Major John. (shown as such in “History of Wilkinson County"

This instantly raised alarm bells for why would Dempsey, born c1797, from a line with very distant connections to the alleged family of Major John be living in their midst?

In checking the records for Elizabeth Hatcher, born c1793, her connection as a daughter of John was made only on the fact that she purchased a slave at John's estate sale - certainly not sufficient proof to establish her daughtership.

In checking Dempsey's family, it was discovered from the census that Dempsey had 2 unnamed sisters, born c1791 and 1793. It now appeared possible that Elizabeth Hatcher Tharp was Dempsey's sister and the daughter of Thomas Jr and Martha Hatcher. If correct, it would explain Dempsey's presence in BibbCo and also explain Elizabeth's purchase at John's estate sale. She was his niece, not his daughter.

. . .Thomas Hatcher Sr, a resident of EdgefieldCo, SC, was a Captain in the spring of 1778. . .
