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.

    • 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.
