Notes

Note N1482In 1752 a most important addition was made to the colony of Georgia. A body of Congregationalists from Dorchester, S.C., secured from the authorities in Georgia the grant of a large body of land lying on the Medway River, half-way between Ogeechee and Altamaha, in what is now Liberty County; and in December of that year Benjamin Baker and Samuel Bacon arrived with their families and servants to take possession. Others soon joined them, and in a few years thirty-five families of these South Carolina rice planters settled on the lands. Their Puritan ancestors had settled at Dorchester in Massachusetts over one hundred years before this time, and fifty years before the removal to Georgia their fathers had moved to South Carolina, on the Ashley River, (48) eighteen miles above Charleston, where they founded a settlement called Dorchester, after the home they had left. The good reports of the lands in Georgia induced them to leave South Carolina for a new home. They were industrious, prudent, intelligent people, fearing God and hating tyranny. They were not wanderers, but men of wealth who brought their property with them and immediately became one of the strongest communities in Georgia. They were Congregationalists, and their minister came with them. The Midway Church, which they erected a few years later, still stands, not far from the town of Dorchester. Many of the most distinguished citizens of Georgia have been descendants of these settlers at Midway.
