Mules used to pull Streetcars in Atlanta #georgiapioneers #genealogy

In 1872 it was mules which pulled

My Childhood Home on Edgewood Avenue #georgiapioneers #history #genealogy

951 was a haven for children, with the park across the street and an easy walk to school.
This old home started its revocations during the 1970s, to a bread-and-breakfast inn.
All of the updates are quite lovely, except the removal of the beautiful tiles from every fireplace, exposing a brash red brick. During the 1940s the homes on this street were served by a wood furnace, and converted to space gas heaters when gas came to the neighborhood.

What Residents Did During the evacuation of Atlanta #georgiapioneers #gagenealogy #gahistory

What Residents Did During the evacuation of Atlanta 

In 1864 when General Sherman was en route to Atlanta, its citizens were panicking to leave. The general exit plan was to hide all precious commodities, such as silver and coins and this was usually done by digging holes in the garden. Some families carried precious items on the train to Kennesaw and when word came that the enemy was nearby, the train stopped and allowed people to hide their stuff. One known stop was along the Chattahoochee River near the Atlanta Water Works. Afterwards, they returned to sweep up the ashes of a burnt city and to suffer the repression of Northern politicians during Reconstruction Days.  Fulton County Historical Articles and Genealogy Resources

Old Stone Mountain Grist Mill

DeKalb County was created in 1822 after the Muskogee (Creeks) Indians ceded the lands by treaty and was taken from Henry, Gwinnett and Fayette Counties. It was named for Baron Johann DeKalb, a German hero of the American Revolution. In 1853 Fulton County was created from the northern portion of DeKalb County. Many of the settlers to DeKalb County were in search of new lands and were farmers. When researching DeKalb County, Henry (the parent County) and Fulton Counties should also be researched. Unfortunately, the estate records do not begin until 1840. If you have an ancestor who resided within the boundaries of the present-day Atlanta, those records will be found in DeKalb County. Remember, the journey from Atlanta to present-day Decatur to file a deed, will, or other record was quite a trip.
