According to their website "The Bank's first president was Samuel Evans, a native
North Carolinian. Sam served during the Civil War as Jefferson Davis' personal bodyguard.
After the war, Sam moved his family to Milledgeville where he became engaged in the manufacture
of plug tobacco laced with Cuban molasses. He also owned a grocery store,
a cotton warehouse and general supply business. Sam, along with the Bank's
cashier Madison McGraw, ran the Bank until 1902 when Sam resigned due to poor health
and Madison left to open a dry goods store."
