"Some Pioneer History of Early County [Georgia], 1818-1871," compiled by Joel W. Perry. This little book is only 59 pages long, and I found it at the Southwest Regional Library (Decatur-Miller-Seminole counties) in Bainbridge, Georgia. The items in the book were first written for the "Early County News," in 1871.
