Timothy Rich d.abt 1730 Goochland VA. Survived by children: Jeremiah
Parker, Timothy, Sara, William, Nimrod, Catherin, David.

The son Timothy Rich/Reach children include: John, Solomon George, Zachariah,
Shadrack, Clary,Zydah of Wake/Granville Co. NC.

I am trying to link Shadrack as father of Martin and the following brothers.

During the late 1700s a group of settlers moved from NC to GA. In the
group was Elijah Fann and three brothers, Martin, William and George
Washington Rich. William Rich settled in Northwest GA; George Washington
Rich settled in Emanuel Co GA Later to Decatur CO.; and Martin Rich settled
in Randolph Co with his wife Sarah Overstreet and son Thomas J Rich b. 30
APR 1815

Thomas J Rich (Continued) Thomas J Rich (son of Martin Rich and
Sarah Overstreet) was b 30 Apr 1815 in NC and d 31 Dec 1864 at Macon GA
from a Civil War wound to the hip. He m Latisha "Letty" Fann b 26 Apr 1816
d 15 Feb 1857 (dau of Elijah Fann). Their children:

1. Martha Jane Rich b 20 Mar 1837. Never married.
2. Sarah Ann "Sallie" Rich b 3 May 1838
3. Elijah A J "Bud" Rich b 16 Nov 1840
4. Susan L Rich b 12 Apr 1842. Never married.
5. Augustus Myles Rich b 17 Sep 1843
6. George Washington Rich b 21 Jan 1845. Killed in
Civil War 10 Jul 1863; never married.
7. John T Rich b 1846. Killed in Civil War 1 May 1864
in Charlotte VA; never married).
8. Charles F Rich b 16 Oct 1847. Never married.
9. Carolina Rich b 15 April 1849 m William J Parker.
10. Wrilla "Riley" Bradford Rich b Oct 1850 m Argentine

This family moved from Randolph to Decatur to Miller and in the late 1850s
back to Decatur Co and settled a few miles northwest of Bainbridge. Both
are bur. in the Fann Cemetery (now Mother's Home Cemetery), Miller Co.

GEORGE WASHINGTON RICH: Settled in Emanuel CO. Ga in late 1700's
George Washington Rich's son Stephen Rich m Martha Phillips on 29 Mar 1827.
She was the daughter of Isaac Phillips who purchased 250 acres in Decatur Co
in 1823. They had seven children:
1. Isaac Rich
2. George Washington Rich
3. Absalom (Dock) Rich
4. Jordan Rich
5. Elvira Rich
6. Nancy Rich
7. Joanna Rich
8. Alfred Rich

Trying to find Father of the three brothers Martin, William and George
Washington Rich, Who settled in GA in late 1700's. Think it might be a
Shadrack Rich from Wake/Granville Co. NC.
