About David Guest

Notes for DAVID GUEST: David moved to Hall County, GA before 1820, shortly after it was opened for settlement. He appears to have settled on the southern border of Hall County near Sugar Hill, GA. David and Fannie Guest can be found listed as early members of the Island Ford Baptist Church. The Church was located on the Chattahoochee River near Sugar Hill in the NW corner of Gwinnett County, GA; where Hall County, Forsyth County and Gwinnett County meet. The Church was established in Feb. 1833. David's wife Fannie apparently died before 1834 and David moved to Franklin County, GA where his older brother Moses Guest had settled. David married second Matilda Hicks in Franklin County on November 9th, 1834. David was 66 years old and Matilda was about 21 years old at the time. David died in March 1851 and left a will. The will named his wife Matilda and only one daughter, Milly Whitbrook. David had land, tenements and several slaves. He left three slaves to daughter Milly.

Matilda never remarried and can be found living alone in Franklin County, GA for both the 1860 and 1870 censuses. In the 1880 census, Matilda, age 65, was living in a Daniel Fulbright household. Her relationship was listed as "other".
