    Notes 

    • (1) McMichael, Lois, Trailing Our Ancestors: McMichael - Maddux, Maddox - Lindsey and Allied Families, Athens, GA: N. R. Leathers, 1994, pp. 376-377:

      Joseph Wise, along with his wife Margaret and their four children, loaded their possessions into their carts and left Wayne County, North Carolina - heading towards Georgia to make their home on the edge of the wilderness. On October 10, 1774, Joseph received 100 acres of land on Long Creek in the fertile uplands of Wilkes County; where they lived on a large plantation near the village of Dartmouth, GA; later called Petersburg. The original home is still standing and by the road was an old mulberry tree on which Joseph raised silk worms and shipped them to England. In 1970, the tree was pushed over by a bulldozer to widen the road.
