    At the old Millstone Creek Community near Elberton Ga., where Meriwether Lewis spent a good bit of his childhood:

    I don't think this is the original church, but could be..

    This is the church nearby, I don't believe it is the original structure:

    I believe this is the site of John Marks homestead, where Lewis lived with his mother and stepfather:

    Thanks for sharing those pictures...:clap

    Don't know why but the big granite markers were taken down about 5,6 yrs ago. Glad they have been returned. The Francis Meriwether on the first market, I think was Meriwether Lewis' Uncle. Meriwether Lewis' mothers maiden name was Meriwether. Naming a child the mother's maiden name was very common in the 1700's and 1800. I road from Ivy, VA, where Lewis was born, to Goosepond, GA probably 10 yrs ago and the trip for 5 year old Meriwether Lewis and his Mother (Lucy Marks) was at a minimum of 25 to 30 horse and buggy days, based on "horse miles per hour"(5-6 mph), and 50+ creeks to cross.

    If I'm not mistaken, the University of Georgia was under construction when the Lewis clan arrived at Goosepond around 1785.

    The Meriwether Lewis clan eventually left Goosepond, Georgia and returned to Ivy, Va (suburb of Charlottesville, VA) Uncle Francis and the rest are buried below. It took me forever to find Lucy’s grave. It is in a residential subdivision in an elderly lady’s private backyard, about 50 yards from view. It was a private cemetery for the Lewis family members. It is well maintained by locals in the Ivy, VA area. Beautiful cemetery. Lucy’s vault is off to the right side of the picture.

    Lucy was a well known “hermologist”. With no drugs at the time Lucy had written a book of cure-all for cuts, sore throats, headaches, all common illnesses. Including “bleeding” to lower blood levels and carterizing. L&C continually referred to Lucy’s teaching during the Expedition. If they could not stop a soldiers’ cut from bleeding, they’d throw a knife or hatchet in their campfire until it was red hot, touch it to a cut to carterize (burn the skin) around the wound to stop bleeding. Stopped the bleeding and sanitized the wound with one step.

    Thanks..! I was wondering about the Francis Meriwether, had me a bit puzzled.

    Here is a map of Indian cessions:

    The Marks homestead would have been within the 1773 cessions which was the Broad R. watershed. Athens area was a little later in 1783.

    Lewis was known, from 6 to 12 yrs of age, to have Creek Indian playmates at Goosepond.
