This is a great Georgian cottage, likely of 1870s or 1880s construction. Thanks to David Flanders for the identification.

    This was my grandparents home. Milton and Delma Lumpkin.

    My parents, Edward M. Flanders & Wilma Phillips spent their honeymoon in this house in 1942. My grandparents still lived in Blundale during this time, and my parents wanted some privacy, but they didn’t get it. His siblings set off fire crackers right outside the bedroom for half the night.

      Emory, my grandmother was Bonita Smith Preston, her father Henry Robert Smith. I have a picture of the Smith house that my grand mother lived in…it was across the street from the store. I think they lived in THIS house after a fire burned their house and before it’s replacement was built. I would be happy to send you what I have.

        I would love to have a photo of the smith house, and would appreciate any information you can send my way.

        The Emanuel County Historical Society will be meeting on July 24, 2014 in Swainsboro, GA to introduce it’s newest book, “Smithton”. I contributed photos and biographies for the book. Let me know if you can attend.
