More about this marker. This marker replaced an earlier marker of the same title and text erected by the Georgia Historical Commission at this location, which had disappeared. The replacement marker was knocked off the post something in early 2009. It leaned against the post for some time, then vanished. The text for the missing marker was taken from “Georgia Historical Markers” (Bay Tree Grove, Second Edition 1978) compiled by Carroll P. Scruggs from the records of the Georgia Historical Commission.
