Synopsis: When Elijah Barnett traveled to visit his brother, Luke, at George's Creek, he didn't realize he was at the start of a legacy. From this visit began the journey from George's Creek to Georgia, a journey through four generations of Barbara Dumas Ballew's family. Ballew, an accomplished genealogist and storyteller, takes readers back to a simpler time, a time when a young illiterate pioneer purchased land for his first farm, met the woman of his dreams, and started a family. Ballew's great-grandmother Lurana, one of Elijah's children, took on the strong nature of her father, persevering even when her parents died and she and her husband were left homeless expecting their first child. When her husband later dies in the Civil War, Lurana is left to endure the hardships of daily life, supporting eight children. As life takes them to Atlanta, readers will encounter the joys and sorrows of family life, finding happiness can always be found. Travel from George's Creek to Georgia with the Barnett-Harris family. It's one unforgettable journey.
