New exhibit at genealogy library

The Lincoln County Genealogy Library has a new hands-on exhibit. A few pieces of Georgia history are on loan to the library and we would like some help identifying these crockery, metal and glass artifacts.

These were found by Nelson Brooks downstream from the first ferry across the river in this area, long before it was called Lincoln County. This ferry was started by Nelson's ancestors and later sold to the Price family who proved much better businessmen. Nelson says that his family spent too much time rolling on the river and not enough time looking after business.

Nelson won't tell where he's been digging in the trash, but would like to share this Georgia history with anyone interested. Some of broken dishes probably came from England a long time ago.
