About Stephen Heard, Gov. of Georgia

Heard was born in Hanover County, Virginia, in November 1740 to Bridgett Carroll and John Heard Jr. (Heard's paternal grandfather, John Sr., had arrived in America from Ireland about 1720.) The family prospered as tobacco farmers in Virginia, where Heard attained a good elementary education. With the outbreak of the French and Indian War (1754-63), however, Heard forfeited his schooling for a chance at adventure. Consequently, he and several of his brothers joined George Washington's Virginia regiment, an experience that had a direct bearing on Heard's future.

One of Heard's slaves, Mammy Kate, saved him from the Tories. http://www.geni.com/people/Mammy-Kate-slave-of-Stephen-Heard/6000000018118403447
