This book is a MUST for anyone doing Georgia Research. This book by Deputy Surveyor General of the State of Georgia is a result of the many requests that the department has had throughout the years for information on the location of Georgia's long-ago dead towns. Such requests come from people finding the name of a town on a post mark, old letter, tax records, censuses and other official documents, seeking to know the location of that community. Mr. Hemperley found that, without a master list of the old as well as new towns in Georgia, these questions could not readily be answered. Georgia has one of the richest and most interesting, legacy of town names of any state in the Union. This book covers over 8,500 places and the county in which they were or are located in.
