Author Barbara Dumas Ballew, a resident of Franklin, will be available to sign copies of her book, “George's Creek to Georgia” Saturday, Dec. 3, at the Mistletoe Magic art and craft show at the Wayne Proffitt Agricultural Center in Franklin.
When Elijah Barnett traveled to visit his brother, Luke, at George's Creek, he didn't realize he was at the start of a legacy. From this visit began the journey from George's Creek to Georgia, a journey through four generations of Barbara Dumas Ballew's family.
Ballew, an accomplished genealogist and storyteller, takes readers back to a simpler time, a time when a young illiterate pioneer purchased land for his first farm, met the woman of his dreams, and started a family.
