Habersham County Photographs

Paul Carpenter

This is Paul Carpenter, grandson of Paul and Lavina Lavender Carpenter of Habersham Co. Ga.  I believe this to be the son of Jonas Carpenter, although both Jonas and his brother Pinckney Carpenter had sons named Paul. This picture was sent to my Grandmother Bertie Carpenter from her cousin, Paul.

Crowe, E. H. & His Gate
It is of  my father Hubert Crow and a rustic gate he built at the Tallulah Falls School in about 1915, when Dad was about 13 years old. I also have a photo of a miniature log cabin he built the same year, but he does not appear in that photo.  His father Sandy Columbus Crow, after his wife Harriet Wilbanks Crow died of a stroke in 1912, worked as a carpenter on the Tallulah Falls hydroelectric dam project starting in 1912 or 1913. Sandy got his youngest son Hubert a job first as a water boy and then as a carpenter's helper, so he had learned to work with carpenter tools at an early age.  Dad added the "e" to his name later, in the 1920s.

My grandfather Sandy Columbus Crow (1861-1934)
and his youngest daughter Margie Crow of Habersham County, GA. Red-headed
Margie was Sandy's only child with his second wife, Fannie Ellard Dickson
(1877-1921) .  Fannie, who had three other children by a prior marriage,
died of childbirth complications in 1921 when she gave birth to Margie.
This photo would appear to have been taken in  the middle 1920s.

This photo is of Annie Crow (1843-1925) holding the baby and
sitting with her husband Perry Peace (1833-1891) of Habersham County, GA.
Annie was the sixth child and third daughter of my great great
grandfather John Samuel Crow (1806-ca. 1880s) and great great grandmother
Mira Crow (ca. 1810-ca 1880s). Annie first married in about 1862 a
Confederate soldier with the surname of Motes. He died during the Civil
War.  Annie later married James (aka Benjamin) Perry Peace in 1864. They
had nine children: John P. Peace (1865-1925), James Wm. Peace
(1867-1929), Charles H. Peace (1871-1939), Dora Peace (1874-1951), Nancy
Peace (1879-1963), Lizzie Peace, Laura Peace, Dicie Peace, and Van Buren
Peace (dates unknown for last four). Perry died in Clarkesville, GA, in
1891. In about 1903 Annie Peace and all her children moved to Anderson,
S.C., where many descendants of Annie and Perry Peace's family still
live. This photo and related information came from descendants Don Peace
of  SC and Fran Simonian of Nevada.
