Columbus, Georgia

What is Columbus, Georgia known for?


home early

a cotton gin attached as a part of the family complex, and continued in operation until the mid 1900’s. During the Civil War (American Civil War) the mill served to supply large size timber to the Confederacy. One of John's sons, William Coker White, who was a lieutenant in the 42nd Georgia C.S.A. (Dekalb Rangers) along with his brother Nicolas, came home early in the war to help oversee this aspect of the operation. According to family oral tradition, the lumber was then hauled over to the Chattahoochee River by wagon (to Aderhold’s Ferry near present day Six Flags) and floated down to Columbus, Georgia where the larger timbers were used in the construction of armored gunboat frames. (Note that one of William’s sons (James Wesley) married one of the Aderhold girls, Alzie.) Quite naturally when Gen. William T. Sherman burned the city of Atlanta (burning of Atlanta), he also found it advisable to burn much of the manufacturing infrastructure in the surrounding areas such as Dekalb County, including White's mill). After the war William Coker and his brother John Wesley rebuilt and continued to run the mill complex together. The economic circumstances after the war however, were such that all the members of the extended White families (John White had 16 children and each of these had their own households) could not rely upon the mill complex for support. Thus the family split up, with a number of White families (including William Coker White) moving as a group west of Atlanta to Haralson County, Georgia. William is buried in Pleasant Grove Church Cemetery in Haralson County along with a number of other members of the White family. John White is buried next to his second wife Nancy Mapp Wells and beside a cenotaph for his first wife Hetty Layfield. Early life and politics Benning was born on a plantation in Columbia County, Georgia, the son of Pleasant Moon and Malinda Meriwether White Benning, the third of eleven children. He attended Franklin College (now the University of Georgia), graduating in 1834. While a student, he was a member of the Phi Kappa Literary Society. After college, he moved to Columbus, Georgia, which would be his home for the rest of his life. He was admitted to the bar (bar association) at age 21. ::This board was established for the purpose of carrying out the duties heretofore exercised by the Muscogee County Board of Elections and the Muscogee County Board of Registrars and which have the powers relating to the conduct of elections a primaries and the registration for voters and absentee balloting procedures that are provide for in the laws of Georgia.

B. 941) signed into law by the Governor on April 4, 1991) Its executive director is also appointed by the Columbus Council. me, this is pretty clearly talking about the Governor of Georgia, who works out of Atlanta , not Columbus (Columbus, Georgia). Even if it ''were'' talking about the Governor of Columbus, I think it's pretty telling that such a supposèd personage has done nothing, at least worthy of mention on the City's website, in the past 14 years... Tomer (User:TShilo12) TALK (User talk:TShilo12) 03:30, May 19, 2005 (UTC) :'''Comment'''. Interestingly enough, there does appear to really have been such a thing as "Governor of Columbus". Unfortunately for this article, he appears to have been a ''military'' governor, and that, of Columbus, Kentucky, and that, in the era of Reconstruction. No help for this article there...

Southern remained a regional airline in character, and flights with up to five or six stops were frequently found in their published schedules. Biography Mockbee was born in Meridian, Mississippi.
