This congregation was established in 1871 and appears to be all that remains of the enigmatic settlement of Sibley, located just south of present-day Arabi off Georgia Highway 41. I’d appreciate any information about Sibley…

“Mother would bring us by in the afternoons for RC Colas. Mallie Hobbs would give us the peanuts to go with them. Oh how I wish I could go just one more time…” Dakota native Cindy Jones Hauesler, 2012
To me, there’s nothing more patriotic than a small town flying flags in honor of Freedom. Downtown Rebecca is lined with flags and they look wonderful. And what better to remind us of the best in America than this group of boys walking down a local street, having fun outside. One even has a watermelon!
My late paternal grandmother, Nettie Mae Pate Brown, was born near Amboy. I’ve never known a whole lot about the family history, or which Pates in the area I’m related to, but I was very excited to find this old landmark. It’s amazing that in all the miles I’ve covered with Vanishing South Georgia that I had never been to Amboy proper before. It’s just a few miles from Rebecca; it goes to show how some of the nicest places can be right under your nose and it can take you forever to find them!
