Charles W. Barnum’s Corner
All users of this site would appreciate the effort and work put in by Charles W. Barnum on his own website from 2002-2008. At the end of 2008 he chose to contribute all of his material from that site to this site to be placed online for perpetuity… it’s a selfless and generous gift to not only Troup County researchers, but all Georgia researchers.
The following information describes what was used from his original website, and then transposed into this website using our own format.
Not all of Charles data will be placed on Troup County, as quite a bit of his data covers the entirety of Georgia. That data will be placed on the main Georgia section of the website, but will be linked to from Charles corner of Troup county genealogy and history.
