Cities, Towns, and Communities of Georgia, 1847-1962
Marion R. Hemperley
This book by Deputy Surveyor General of the State of Georgia is a result of the many requests that department has had throughout the years for information on the location of Georgia’s long-ago dead towns. Such requests come from people finding the name of a town on a post mark, old letters, tax records, censuses and other official documents, seeking to know the location of that community. Mr. Hemperley found that, without a master list of the old as well as the new towns in Georgia, these questions could not readily be answered. Georgia has one of the richest & most interesting, legacy of town names of any state in the Union. This book covers over 8,500 places & the county in which they were or are located in.
