Adam Underhill writes: I believe this was the residence of my great-great-grandfather, Cannie Swain Meadows, a Confederate veteran. I believe he is correct in his assertion. According to the listing on Find A Grave, where this circa 19100 postcard was shared by Olivia Williamson Braddy originates, Meadows (8 March 1843-15 August 1923) was a Corporal with Company H, 49th Georgia Infanty. He owned a dry goods store and hotel, as well as Tiger Springs, a recreational attraction on Tiger Creek. Cannie, as he was known, had 13 children, all but one of whom lived to adulthood; several lived well into their nineties.

    Good morning Brian,
    My name is Bobby and I am the owner of this house in Normantown. Thank you for featuring it and also giving me a little information to go on. I am currently renovating the house and as you can imagine the house is in need of both major and minor repairs as well as modern updates to electrical and plumbing. But with each task I am focused on restoring this home to its former glory. Painstakingly attempting to keep as much of the exterior and interior as original as possible.
    I would look forward to a future visit by you and show you and your readers the progress and hopefully the completion within the next year.
    Respectfully
    Bobby Farmer

  2. Thank you for posting this photo. I believe this was the residence of my great-great-grandfather, Cannie Swain Meadows, a Confederate veteran. I can’t say for sure as it’s based on internet-evidence, but here is a postcard image:

    • This is definitely the same house, in my opinion. Thanks so much for sharing this. I will add this name to the post. And the scan/photo of the postcard, if that’s okay. It’s in the public domain, I’m sure.
