Thomas Savage IV lived in Bryan Co, GA. Thomas died at his Silk Hope plantation in Bryan Co, GA. His probate took place in 1820 at The Point Plantation in Chatham Co, GA. The enslaved listed here are from either or both plantations.[1]

The Point Plantation was situated on the Ogechee River in Chatham Co, GA. It consisted of 280 acres, and it adjoined the plantation of Joseph Habersham, formerly Benjamin Savage land, and Stephen Elliott land. Mary Savage, widow of Thomas Savage, was allowed by court order to sell the plantation in 1827.[2]


These might be family groupings by the way they are listed.
