  • Notes 
    • Israel lived in Camden County, Georgia. It is believed that Israel was the first known settler of the Okefenokee Swamp. During the time that Israel lived, Charlton, Georgia was then Camden County, Georgia.

      The earliest white settler documented who was associated with the Okefenokee was Israel Barber. He moved to the Georgia Bend (the tip of Georgia, created by the St. Marys River, which dips into Florida) in 1807. He was interviewed by members of the Georgia-Florida Boundary Survey in 1831. Barber said he was familiar with the recesses of the southeastern corner of the Okefenokee because of his "habit of hunting gaters and herding cattle and hogs throughout the country." He died in 1833.
