Carter Parker drew land in 1827 in Coweta County, Ga.


Coweta County was created in 1826.  It was formed from Creek Indian Lands received in a treaty with the Federal government at Indian Springs, GA in Feb, 1825. The county seat is Newnan.
The earliest seat of government in Coweta County was Bullsboro, two and a half miles east of Newnan. In 1827-28 the Inferior Court of Coweta County selected the present site of Newnan to be the county seat.

The first known white settler to arrive in our area was  John Duncan in 1754 he settled along a creek in the  northeastern section of the county, not far from the present City of Clinton. The General Assembly passed  an act on March 12, 1785, whereby 6 counties were to be established out of the old Ninety-Six District. Laurens  County was one of those counties. Laurens County
derived its name from a patriot, warrior, and statesman, --the Honorable Henry Laurens of Charleston.   Scotch-Irish immigrants out of Pennsylvania, Maryland,  and Virginia became the predominate settlers of the county.
