Brickmaking in Savannah.

brick making
Thomas Salter, a Saddler at Savannah, was granted 500 acres of land on a piece of marsh located near Augustine Creek. He arrived in Georgia on December 17, 1733 and was appointed Constable.  The land on Hutchinson Island was unsuitable for brick-making, and he later removed his operations to Dawbus Island, south of Savannah, three miles below the town.  From the very first, then, there were some brick chimneys in Savannah.  Salter was married to Anne, the widow of Joseph Coles on September 9, 1736.  He died in 1751 naming his grandson, William Thomas Harris to care for his daughter, Ann Demetre.  Meanwhile, his widow went to reside with her daughter, Ann, who had married William Harris (died ca 1741), also a widow.
