    3. I would start with the usgenweb page at: http://www.rootsweb.com/~gahousto/ Contact the area Genealogical Society to see if there is any history of the land you own. Also try the county court house and the land records to see who owned the land prior to you. You can find the dates of interest to match the history you're trying to obtain also you now have names to research at the Genealogical Society. Try matching them with the census records and county history. Check also with the local library. Fred Frederick M.

    1. Re: Babcock, Miller County
    2. Hi! There is no Babcock listing in the gazetteer. Miller county wasn't laid out until 1856, I think. There is a "Miller's Bend" - is a crook in the Chattahoochee, in Lat. 32 52' 16", and Long. 8 12' 49". At this spot the line between Georgia and Alabama diverges from the river and runs N. 9 26' 36" W. to Nickojack, a distance of 146 miles. This line was run in 1826, by Commissioners from Georgia alone, Alabama having declined to meet them.

My husband and I go camping and love to explore and photograph ghost towns. One of the most inspirational to me was Bodie with its arreted development.

    1. RE: [GA-GHOSTTOWNS] RE: HOLTON, GA
    2. David Clinard
    3. Thanks. I recall there being an "Old Holton Road" within the city of modern day Macon, Bibb Co, GA. But there is no Holton community anymore. The road deadends on what is now Riverside Drive. Riverside Dr. runs parallel to the river in north Macon and it used to be named Warf Street. I found that on an old historic map of the city. So my guess is that Holton was at the current interesction of Riverside Drive and Old Holton Road, on the river as you stated. Interesting. Thanks again. ---- Original Message ---- From: [email protected] To: [email protected] Subject: RE: [GA-GHOSTTOWNS] RE: HOLTON, GA Date: Sat, 5 Aug 2006 13:15:59 EDT > >Answering the question regarding Holton, GA.

The river divides Bibb Co. from Jones Co. If my guess is right, Holton is on the south side of the river, like I said the river divides Bibb from Jones. SHEILA

    3. Hello, I am researching my Fears family that originated from Kelly, in Jasper County, Ga. From what I understand so far, it had a store and a man named Mr. Kelly who ran the post office. I am reaching out to ask if anyone knows more about the town of Kelly? If anyone has an old photo of Kelly, I would love to have a copy, and am willing to pay for it. I have read that it is/was situated right next to or below? Shady Dale, Ga. Any further information or leads to find out more of its history/residents would be greatly appreciated.
