Hi, Mark Rutledge,
I believe that my granddaddy, James Hillman Cox (1854-192) was the person your grandfather sold the property cox to. Do you have any additional information about James Cox?
This was the setting for the first ever flight of the General Lee, November 11th 1978. The video footage of the first ever jump the General made was right outside these doors of the college and was also used in the intro of all the episodes. I believe this building is called Speney Hall. Hoody
This hotel is now a Ramada (1/30/08) Seems weird, its been a Holiday Inn since I was little.
Also, seen on TV's "In the Heat of the Night".
This was also used in TV's "In the Heat of the Night" w/ Carol O'Conner.
It was built in 1854 by Thomas Jones for Louis Zachary, then Sheriff of Newton Co. It later became the home to John and Sara Jane Echols. Sara Jane was Daughter of Charles Strong, a Newton Co. pioneer and founding member of the school that became Emory University.
The Queen Ann style house, (The only one in Covington) across the street to the south, was a wedding gift from Sara Jane to her daughter who married WC Clark, son of WW Cark - who gave the land for the house to the newly weds. WW Clark helped bring the railroad to Decatur (Atlanta) and so the town of Clarkston, outside of Atlanta, was named after him.
