> Emanuel County. Elijah Trapnell and his wife Teresa Hull Trapnell lived

> father's
> land in Emanuel County and began to buy land across the Canoochee River in
> western Bulloch County. Sometime around 1860, he and Nancy built a home
> near
> a sparsely populated crossroads on the Sunbury Road that would later
> become
> Metter.

> When the War for Southern Independence erupted, their lives were put on

> a
> local cavalry company that was being reorganized. On 9 May 1862 they
> signed
> on with the Bulloch Troop of the 2nd Georgia Cavalry under Captain George
> Best. The company had previously been mustered in 1861 under Dr. A.I.
