1875 Tornado-Glascock Co., Ga
Posted by: kathy ernst (ID *****9118) Date: July 24, 2002 at 12:23:59
  of 81

The following names were included in a series of articles in the Augusta Chronicle & Sentinel. I was searching for information on my own line, but thought someone else might be interested also. I posted the names to the counties as listed, however, the articles were not always specific and oftentimes the names were listed in different counties in different articles. Hope this helps someone else. The full reports can be seen at http://www.augustaarchives.com and they have graciously given me their permission to share these.
