Om First One Hundred Years of Upson County
Upson County, Georgia, has produced great Negro leaders whom God has given gifts to make a difference in the first one hundred years of history. As I researched the history of Upson County, Georgia, my soul got excited about what God did through willing vessels. My goal in this book is to encourage future generations to become available vessels to be used by God as difference makers in a changing world and to show how Negroes in Upson County thrived in the early 1800s and 1900s by investing their time, talents, and money to make the county great. Unfortunately, there are very scarce recordings of history of early Negro settlers in Upson County, and few vital statistics are available. However, as the result of painstaking effort and research as this work progressed, it is believed that this volume is as accurate as humanly possible.
