Houston County Courier - January 2009
Bernice Corbitt Easterly responded to Houston County Historical Commission's request for more information about the photo of the Georgia Camp School that was published In the Sunday, Jan. 18 Houston County Courier.
Mrs. Easterly called Marty Cash at the HCHC office and reported that, in fact, the photo was not the Georgia Camp School but a picture of the Creek School instead.
To verify this new information, Mrs. Easterly also brought in a souvenir program from the Creek School dated "1897-'98," with C.G. Lansford, teacher, and directors L.H. Morrow, D.J. Keels and H.C. Sessions.
Mrs. Easterly supplied the following information about her great-grandmother, Martha E. Morrow, the daughter of Lewis H. Morrow and the great-granddaughter of William Morrow,
Martha was born June 12, 1884 and died Oct. 1981 in Houston County. She married Robert Harley Alexander Bartee, son of James and Elizabeth Haddox, on May 15, 1904.
