     Biography of Felix Geiger Sr.:
"Felix was nineteen when the British surrendered Savannah. He could have made some effort in the freedom fight. He joined with brother Abraham in the request for land and received 100 acres 6 April 1789, in that part of Effingham County that later became Bulloch Co. (Book A, microfilm 64-68, 1783-1800) The same day his wife's brother James Martin, received 200 acres on the south side of the great Ogeechee river. Felix got another 50 acres in the same area in 1795, (Records PPPP 686)."

     "Felix was married or in the notion when he asked for land to live on. He married Mary Martin and they should have had three or four children before their oldest known probable child. He and Mary made a deed in Bulloch County in 1810, (Annals of Georgia, page 1620). He was in the area when Ulrich's land was signed over to brother John."

     "In the 1820 census he was with brother Cornelius in Wayne Co. and I believe he was there when he died in 1827." [The above three paragraphs from Geiger, C. A. "The Geiger Family" (Green Cove Springs, Florida 1965) compiled for The Geiger Family Organization]

Colonial GA Council Journal at Savannah on July 1, 1766 "Read a Petition of Ulric Kegar setting forth that he was at present an Inhabitant of South Carolina but proposed immediately to remove into this Province with his family being a Wife, four children and one Negro in order to settle and cultivate Land ..." On 2 June 1767 Ulrick Kegar was granted 300 acres in St. Phillips Parish. Tradition suggests that Ulrich died "of wounds while fighting" either in Indian forays or in the American Revolution. He may have been a revolutionary soldier.

     Children of Ulrick Geiger were: Felix, Abraham, Cornelius, John and Mary. They appear to be all of his children because his property in Bulloch Co., Georgia was divided 5 ways. Bulloch Co., GA deeds: Jan. 16, 1815: Felix Geiger, Abraham Geiger, Mary Hofman and Cornelius Geiger, legal heirs of Ulrick Kegar dec'd. sold to their brother John Geiger, also a legal heir of Ulrick Kegar, for the sole intention that strict justice may be obtained and done to their brother and to prevent dispute and lawsuit, that parcel of land being one-fifth or 60 acres, originally granted 2nd June 1767 to Ulrick Kegar.
