I finally got the Henry County Books!!!

These two books were in a estate sale recently and posted on 'EBAY.' I was very luckey to buy them both!
"Henry County, Georgia -- The Mother of Counties" and the accompanying index, both by Vessie Thrasher Rainer.
 Both are out of print.

The Mother of Counties Privately published, 1971.
Then it was lublic published in 1988.
Illustrated with b/w photographs.

 The author covers the early history, education, military records, natural resources, development, railroads, industry, the Civil War, county government, and genealogical sketches of pioneer families: Alexander, Butler, Cleveland, Copeland, Crumbley, Elliott and allied families, Frear, Grier-Greer, Kimbell, Moseley, Pickens-Crockett-Brown, Pickens-Walkup-Brown-Carmichael-Hooten-Grant, Rodgers, Houston-Stillwell, Thrasher, Turner, and Zachary.

I can't wait until my little fingers and large eyes get to look and read both books! I have been looking for this book ever since I moved into Henry County and now I can say I have the 'History of Henry County Right in my Hands!' Now I can start my own book!

I love history!

New Year and a new me!!!

I have to post this new page for you guys and gals out there. This is the year for me completely! 2011 is the beginning of the new me! My weight is and always been a very big factor in my life and it has tried to take me over! I am getting so tired and that every day seems to be a major struggle for me that I decided that I will see how much could I lose with four months. This is a very small goal but I really want and need to do this because my health is now in jeopardy. Also, my paranormal friends and I are trying to set up a paranormal show from the south and the producer and directer Senay Jackson keeps putting me on the AKA spotlight and filming me an d placing me on 'you-tube'. So with that said I need to lose some major pounds. I am a life time member of 'Watch Watchers' and I still have my old gold key. Embarrassed to go back, so I will try to do it a little at a time. I will need help and I am not afraid to ask for help out there. So this is my first month!
Hugs and Kisses!
