Note: The following is part of a series of columns looking at the founding and general history of southeast Georgia and Bulloch County. In Hugh McCall's "History of Georgia: Containing Brief Sketches of the Most Remarkable Events up to the Present Day, 1784" (1811), it is stated that on May 20, 1733, Oglethorpe signed a treaty with the headmen of the Lower Creeks Native American tribe. This treaty gave title to the colony of Georgia's trustees "for all the lands between Savannah and Alatamaha (or Altamaha) rivers, extending west to the extremity of the tide water, and including all the islands on the coast from Tybee to St Simons."
