Names of Families in Emanuel County Wills, Estates, MarriagesEmanuel County was created in 1812 from Bulloch and Montgomery counties. The county was named for Georgia Governor David Emanuel (1744-1810) Subsequently, portions of Emanuel County were used to create the following counties: Johnson (1858), Jenkins and Toombs (1905), Candler (1914), and Treutlen (1918). The first commissioners in 1812 were: Edward Lane, Francis Pugh, Needham Cox, Eli Whitdon, and Uriah Anderson, and in 1813 Jesse Mezzle and Archibald Culberth. The Emanuel County Courthouse has been destroyed by fire five times -- in 1841, 1855, 1857, 1919, and 1938. The county records included here are the earliest surviving.
Durden-Brinson-Brewer HouseThe Durden-Brinson-Bewer House dates during the 1850s and is a historic landmark in Emanuel County. Jacob Durden served as a soldier in the American Revolutionary War as a refugee soldier from Georgia. A descendant, H. Kelmer Durden represented the family in 1966 when I visited him at the Emanuel County Court House. The family comes from Norman stock and the immigrant to America was Stephen Durden who settled in Nansemond County, Virginia. Many generations have resided near Swainsboro, Georgia ever since.
