Oct, 1999McCants Mill Pond
John Adams reveals the significance of this location from 1800's to 1950's for Confed Veteran, church, and family picnics. He provides a map showing the exact location which also shows a road which no longer exists. Reading of the delights of fishing there, we can understand this once popular family sport. This story is enhances by color photos.
This is a delightful article reveals history and humourous details and answers the question, "Why did most outhouses have two holes to sit on?" If you've been a city dweller all your life, you'll especially appreciate his insights! You'll enjoy Riley's "Ode to the Outhouse" as well as a more recent "That Little Old Shack Out Back".

Fire Destroys Records
The fire occurred Thursday night, September 18, 1997 in the brick building located on Highway 137, west of Butler. Many county records had just been inventoried by Diane Renfro and moved there in preparation for microfilming.
Even the inventory list was lost in the fire, but some known burned were: 1964 Tax Digest (although a duplicate is in the Courthouse); Civil Dockets 1863 & 1868; Criminal Dockets 1870 & 1872; Complete Records 1910's; Book of Notaries 1930's; Generaly Exec Docket 1940's; Ledge 1890's. The oldest known records were from 1838.
After the fire the books and loose records were very wet. A freezer truck was rented and all records were frozen to prevent further damage. The County sent 358 books to be cleaned on Oct 13, plus a stack of maps from the Soil Conservation Service.
Taylor County RECEIVES $7,500 GRANT FOR MICRO FILMING, PRESERVATION AND STORAGE OF RECORDS
In three years, tropical storm Alberto and courthouse fires in 1995/1996 put county records at risk.
This grant and matching funds from the county of $13,648 will provide a total of $21,648 for records inventory, processing and vital records program analysis and planning.
Winston Walker, Archivist, from Upson Co. will act as consultant.
