Descendants of Haywood English
 
Generation No. 1
 

1. HAYWOOD2 ENGLISH (UNKNOWN1) was born Bet. 1795 - 1800 in State of North Carolina or Virginia, and died Bef. 13 February 1868 in Habersham Co., GA (Probable). He married SARAH "SALLIE" MCCRACKEN 11 April 1822 in Habersham Co., GA, daughter of JAMES MCCRACKEN and ELINOR WILSON OR WOFFORD. She was born Bet. 1802 - 1805 in State of Georgia, and died in Habersham Co., GA (Probable).

Notes for HAYWOOD ENGLISH:

Evidence that Haywood had a brother named Wesley English who was living in Haywood's son William's household in 1880. Wesley also found in Franklin Co., GA earlier. Haywood may also have had a brother named Hiram who is found in conjunction with the above Wesley. Data on both of these men in the notes on Wesley.

Possible that Haywood may have been married before Sarah McCracken as one IVORY ENGLISH found on the 1850 census of Rabun Co., GA next to James M. English, son of Haywood. Just up the road was John Marion English, another son of Haywood. Ivory remained in Rabun County through the 1860 census and was found on the 1870 census in Franklin Co., GA.

Note: HAYWOOD ENGLISH HOME
Note:
Big Holly Cabin - This heart pine cabin is one of the few remaining
examples of a single pen (room) cabin built
when this was the Georgia mountain frontier. The hand-hewn logs
are joined with full-dove tail corner notching and the logs are chinked
on the interior with wooden battens. This type of cabin was once
plentiful, but they usually evolved into double pen cabins or larger
houses with frame additions.
Note:
In 1820, Haywood English built a log house on unclaimed Land Lot 85,
District 11, near the Chattahoochee River. In 1841, the original lottery
recipient of this lot belately laid claim to it. In a series of legal
actions, which eventually ended in the Georgia Supreme Court, English lost
his plea of "sitters rights" and moved to this location. Family legend
contends this to be the same log house initially built on Land Lot 85 in
1820, and moved to this location in 1849. The cabin was restored
by a descendent of the English family in 1986-87.

Notes for GEORGE WASHINGTON ENGLISH:

A George W. English is found buried in Love/English cemetery in Habersham Co., GA; date of death is 25 Nov 1920 at age 97. This would make George born 1823, which date census data does not support. However, this may, in fact be the Same George W. English. Also buried in the cemetery are Emma S. English (found as wife of George W. English on census) b. 09 Sep 1840 d. 30 Mar 1932 and Edward A. English b. 27 Mar 1877 d. 12 Jan 1959 (found as son of George on census). Because this seems to be the correct family...some data must have been incorrect from census base or from cemetery records. Also buried at the same cemetery are twins (children of G. W. and E. S. English), Claud and Roy, no dates.
