Subject: [GAGWINNE] Waldrop Family of Gwinnett Co, GA

I have a Juda Waldrop who married Seaborn Jones Jackson. Seaborn's
sister, Elizabeth Anne, married Miles Jefferson Langley, who is in my
You may be familiar with Juda, but here is what I know. She was born
Sept. 10, 1801 in Spartanberg, SC, and died April 29, 1879 at the Jackson
home place located about 2.5 miles south of Grayson, Gwinnett Co., GA.
Grayson was know as Trip back then. Juda married Seaborn 1831 in
Gwinnett Co. Some researchers say her name was Judah or Julia.
Juda is the daughter of Shadrack Jr. and Rachael Rhodes Waldrop. He was
also born in Spartanberg. Shadrack is the son of Shadrack Sr. and Patsy
Last November, I visited the Grayson area, and with the help of another
Langley / Jackson researcher, saw the site where the Jackson home place
once stood, as well as the Langley home place site where Miles and
Elizabeth Jackson Langley lived. These sites are located close together
on a road that is named Langley Road. If you wish, I can send you a map
of this area by e-mail. It shows the location of the former homes.
Have you seen the information on various Waldrop's in the book "History
of Gwinnett County, Georgia" Volume II by Flanigan? On pg. 22 I see
where Greenberry Waldrop was a Justice of the Peace for District 544 in
1825. In same book pg. 222, an article about the Sweetwater Primitive
Baptist Church mentions a G. B. Waldrop as clerk of the church when it
was formed on Dec. 8, 1824. Charter members included Bodie, Benjamin and
Alsey Waldrop. In Volume III of the same title, I see where Greenberry
of District 544 drew a prize in the 1827 lottery on April 17 for land in
Muscogee Co., District 15, lot 138.
Do you know anything about Juda and Seaborn Jackson, or about the Jackson
and Langley families? My Langley ancestors lived just south of
Lawrenceville, probably as early as 1827.
