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!
