In February of 1733 the first transport of English settlers by James Edward Oglethorpe arrived on American soil to found the colony of Georgia. It was Oglethorpe's belief that ordinary persons from the streets of London could improve their lives. Each settler had his own particular adventure, but by ca 1748 most of the families were no longer residents of Fort Frederica. To find them required individualistic studies of each family, tracing their roots forward. Historians and genealogists get a truer perspective of the part which these brave and courageous souls played in founding the colony.
