  5. I am looking for any information on The Blackburn Family in Upson County and the city of The Rock in particular. My great grandfather was John Wesley Blackburn and he was married to (Viola Rivers) Blackburn. I think they lived in Upson County from 1900 through 1930 or so. Thanks

  6. My name is Steve Jimmerson and I live in San Antonio, TX. My father’s family came to NE Texas before the Civil War. The research that I have done tells me that my ggg grandfather, Thomas Jimmerson, came from Upson Co., Ga. to Texas with a stop possibly in Alabama.
    I am coming to Atlanta for a wedding and would like to visit Thomaston and look around.
    Can anyone suggest places that I should visit? I will only have a couple of days to check things out.
    Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

    • Steve, there is a Thomas Jimmerson (age 40) in the 1850 census with his wife Sarah (age 40) and their five children. Thomas was from North Carolina and Sarah from Georgia. He was a farmer. As a farmer Thomas would have made a trip to Thomaston to go to the stores. At the time they were here, the stores would be made of wood (several fires changed the City Code to downtown businesses to brick). The current courthouse is the third. He would have been familiar with the second courthouse. I would at least walk downtown, as this is the layout he would have been familiar with. For a nice rest, the Greatest Generation Park is relaxing — fountain, walking paths — (19 North across from Ingles). If you want to see if there are records on Thomas (if you are here during the week, come to the Archives. We are open from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. But call to make sure it is not on a holiday.) Go on the City of Thomaston website, and there is a driving tour of historic homes. The Ritz Theater is an historic theater on the Square. Upson County has the Auchumpkee Covered Bridge — which is a nice place to have a picnic. The Pettigrew White Stamps House is the Upson Historical Society’s museum. If you are interested in a tour, call me and I will contact some board members. (706) 646 2437. All the Best, Penny Cliff
