Can you identify the owners of these homes in Greene County, Georgia?

When Marion Post Wolcott visited Greene County, Georgia in May 1939, she discovered many abandoned houses, many which appear to be quite large and grand at one time. If these houses could talk, imagine what stories they would tell!

Here are a few that have seen better days. I wish I knew who lived in them. The descriptions are the only information provided by Marion Post Walcott when she took them in 1939.

Comment below in the reply section if you can identify any owners.

  1. The eleventh picture down (the second below the description of Two Old Plantation Homes) looks to be Jefferson Hall, built by Lemuel Greene about 1830.
    It is located just east of Union Point, Ga. Jefferson Hall is listed in the National Registry of Historic Places. You can google it and there are some pictures of it today after it has been renovated. Hope this helps.
