His name is pronounced go-lucky.
Did you know this courthouse replaced the one dismantled in Marion and moved to Jeffersonville when it became the county seat? It took six years, to dismantle, move it, and rebuild, and was used until it burned Then this one was built
J. W. Golucke designed about 25 Georgia courthouses, including the one in Tattnall County. The DeKalb courthouse is considered his masterpiece. Will someone who knows German tell me how his name should be pronounced?
Yes, he did, John. If you search his name on Vanishing South Georgia you should find quite a few! Read about his troubles surrounding the Baker County Courthouse here: https://vanishingsouthgeorgia.com/2010/05/11/baker-county-courthouse-1900-newton/
