William DRAWDY

Military Service: 1812 Georgia Militia, War of 1812
Event: Political BET 1845 AND 1853 Justice of Wayne Inferior Ct.
Event: Political BET 1855 AND 1856 Justice of Peace, 33rd Dist.

DRAWDY, William 1790-1857 WAYNE

WILLIAM DRAWDY was born in South Carolina in 1790, and was a son of Daniel Drawdy, R.S., and a brother of Daniel Drawdy (q.v.). His wife Mary was born in 1791 in South Carolina, but her maiden name so far has not been learned. According to his will dated 1855, they had then been married 45 years, making the year of their marriage 1810. Their children were:

1. James C. b. 1816, m. Elizabeth Harper, daughter of James.
2. William Thomas b. 1816, m. Eliza Coursey of Tattnall County.
3. Susannah b. 18__, m. ______Welch.
4. Elizabeth C. b. 18__, m. Colwell.
5. Mary Ann b. 18__, m. ______ Middleton.
6. George W. b. 1825, m. Nancy______.

It appears that William Drawdy and wife moved to Tattnall County soon after marriage and resided there some years. He was a petit juror there as early as November, 1814, and a lieutenant in the militia of the 40th District, 1817-1819. In 1819 he applied for land lottery draws, and was then residing in Capt. Overstreet's District, and was allowed two draws for his wife and children. The 1820 Census shows the family in McIntosh County. Shortly after, they moved to Wayne County where they afterwards lived.

Mr. Drawdy was lst lieutenant of the militia in the 33rd district, Wayne County, 1824-1826, and was Captain in the same district, 1826-1832. He was Justice of Peace in the 28th District, 1825-1829, and in the 383rd District, 1830-1837. He served as one of the Justices of Wayne Inferior Court, 1845-1853. He was Justice of Peace of the 333rd district, 1855-1856.

Mr. Drawdy was a soldier in the Georgia Militia in the War of 1812, also in the Indian Wars. His will dated February 26, 1855, was probated December 2, 1857. The home-place on the north half of Lot 161, 3rd Land District Wayne County, was given the wife along with all personal property, for her lifetime. William T. and James C. Drawdy were named executors of the will.

Note: A deed appears of record in Laurens County from William Drawdy and James Drawdy, his brother, both of Laurens County, to Sherod Hutson, dated October 17, 1811, conveying Lot 351, 12th district, for $300.00 (see deed book "B", page 63). This would indicate William Drawdy lived in Laurens before moving to Tattnall County.
