Georgia War Memorials: Wilkes County
I yearly contribute to the Honor Roll Project of Heather Wilkinson Rojo – the purpose is to photograph and transcribe Veteran names for family research. Heather’s Honor Roll page can be found at Honor Roll Project. If you would like to contribute, information can be found there as to “how” to send your photos and transcriptions in.
Washington, Wilkes County, Georgia
While in Georgia this year I visited the town of Washington in Wilkes County, a town where my great-grandfather, William Clark Bryan, lived before moving to Greene County, and where my grandfather Paul Pinkney Bryan was born. In honor of my grandfathers, I’ve chosen to highlight Wilkes County for an Honor Roll post.
