Biographical/Historical Note

William Little was the son of William Little of Augusta, who was orphaned as a child shortly after arriving with the first boat load of settlers to Georgia, on the famous ship, Anne.


Scope and Content Note

The collection consists of copies of a series of maps of the Louisville and Big Buckhead Creek area of Georgia. The maps were prepared by Delbert M. Little of Boise, Idaho, as part of his research into William Little (1753-1800), member of the Georgia General Assembly and Executive Council, as well as delegate to the state constitutional convention of 1789. The maps are based upon grants and plats in the Georgia Surveyor General Department and plats in the Superior Court of Jefferson County. Locations of some grants is speculative.
