Elijah,
Gracious! You've done a whole lot of research - and well written up, too. Have you given any thought to getting your work published?
I'd stand in line for a copy.

Just an added post to bring notice to the sections above on Thomas Browne, Elijah Clarke, and the Battle at kettle Creek. There was a festival on in the town of Washington in Wilkes County, GA this weekend for the 232nd anniversery of the battle.

A typo. Kettle Creek is just outside the town of Washington, in Wilkes County, GA.
They had a beautiful day for it today, too!

thanks Hugh. Got it edited. I've never actually been there but one of my more unusual sources is a book on the history of Wilke's County, GA. Should have realized.

comment to Elijah and Kathy

I have long been a student of the history of Thomas Waters, Loyalist. Wrote a 1500 word non-fiction manuscript and asked my friend (who was the best read person I knew) to read and comment. He did and replied, 'interesting but no one cares in today's world'. Glad to find this site where a few do care. Converted my non-fiction to fiction, added romance and voodoo and it is available on as Savannah Spell to Yorktown. I too am a Waters of Georgia but not sure I are any one else knows our descent correctly. Have read, met and talked with the lates Heard Robertson, Ed Cashin, Charlton Hudson and numerous others about T.W. In my opinion Roberton and Hudson were the best authorities on the subject. Some info I found on my own were that Sally Waters, half Creek/Cherokee named her son George Morgan Waters and the first Indian agent of the new US was George Morgan who before the revolution was in GA. Thought perhaps he was father to Sally, thus the naming, but perhaps she just admired his work with Indians. Also at the time that G.Washington met with Indians leaders in NY, a Thomas Waters (with slaves which hints he was southern) is listed as being there for only the 1790 census.
I found it interesting that someone else is aware that T.W.'s banishment by GA. was removed. Wondered why since it was a major move by Ga. authorities and there must have been a reason.
Sally of course was niece of Ogosatah, mico at Etowah.
Perhaps coincidently the Long Canes was granted originally to one Sinclair Waters of Ga. grands/o Samuel Wattors/Walters/ Waters (all three spellings are shown on documents concerning the same individual) grandson of John Wattors/Waters (d. 1704) of Anne Arundel County, Md. Samuel was 1/2 brother of William, John, Joseph, Mary, Margaret and Elizabeth. These four brothers were listed as brothers in the 1767 probated North Carolina Will of "the son of John Dalrymple, Baron of the Kingdom of Scotland". As was usual in that era in-laws were referred to as brothers as well and was probably the case since their sister married Dalrymple. I have references for all of this if any interested in further info. Sinclair and his wife Tamara Oates Waters also were parents of John Waters granted a Ga. island north of the Ogeechee River (present day Skidaway Island where the Landings resort is).
Perhaps this is all also related to my recently Amazon Kindle published non-fiction monograph: Brown, Beautiful and Bold: Review with Questions of Her Non-fiction Literature of history's mystery woman, Lucy Walter.
