Governor William Rabun

1FindaGrave.com, http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=7097508. "Georgia Governor. Born in Halifax County, North Carolina, he moved to Georgia, with his family in 1785, received a rudimentary education and served as a Captain of the Greene County Militia in 1793. He was justice of the peace for Hancock County in 1799, justice of the Inferior Court (1802-10), a member of the Georgia General Assembly (1805-06) and a member of the Georgia Senate, (1810-16). In 1817, he was elected the 29th Governor of Georgia and served until his death at age 48." Image.


Mary Battle

1FindaGrave.com, http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=144452571. ""Died: at her residence in Hancock County, Ga, on the 8th instant, after a few hours illness, ..., widow of the late Gov Rabun" per Southern Recorder(12/20/1842)
Gov William Rabun's grave was moved from this location in approximately 1970, leaving the other members of his family here."
This cemetery was once located on W. W. Stevens’ land (1910), four miles west of Mayfield (source: Lucian Lamar Knight, Georgia’s Landmarks, Memorials and Legends as quoted by John Rozier in Houses of Hancock 1785-1865). At that time, the cemetery was described as neglected for more than 75 years.

From "Report Made by Committee On Graves and Monuments" in The Atlanta Constitution, Mar 29, 1914, p. B5, Mrs. Richard P. Spencer writes: "Buried on the Stephens plantation, which is, I understand, near Sparta, Ga., there is another of Georgia's illustrious revolutionary governors, that of Governor Rabun, whose grave is most sadly neglected, and from the information that has come to me it may be an impossibility to identify it at this late day, as it is one of many graves unmarked in a country cemetery. The person giving this information says it is only a question of a short time when it may be plowed over and forever obliterated."
Gov William Rabun's grave was moved from this location in approximately 1970, to Powellton Baptist Church Cemetery, leaving the other members of his family here. Since that time, loggers have destroyed the cemetery, and the graves can no longer be found. (Current Google Earth views confirm this, location is the middle of a tree farm.)
Directions: From the Hancock County Courthouse, go on Hwy 22 east for 12.5 miles to Powellton Church Road (CR 219). The road will be in sight of the Powellton Community sign. Turn right on Powellton Church Rd. and go approximately 2 miles to Monument Rd. (Channel Rd) (dirt) on the right. Turn right and park immediately. The cemetery is believed to have been in the area to your left (on the southwest corner of this intersection). Image.
