My name is John Beverly Vickers Jr. , I am 24 years
old, and I live in Wrightsville,
GA. Just wanted
to compliment you on this site. I can see that it took a tremendous
amount of time and effort to compile and key in this much information. I saw
the part about Dr. Thomas Vickers exstensive land holdings, I've been told that it was around 5000 acres while
all that is left now in possesion of the Vickers name
is about 500 acres. My grandfather, John B. ( Doc)
Vickers owns about 1/3 of that. I deer hunt and fish in the creek there, and sometimes just imagine my ancestors planting or
harvesting the crops, tending the herd or just relaxing on Sunday getting ready
for another long week of work. About a mile down the road from that is Dr.
Vickers homeplace.Also the Bethany Church
Cemetery holds a
tremendous amount of Vickers history. I am about to purchase 7 acres about 1/2
mile east of Bethany Church to build my own homeplace
on.It is not currently owned by a Vickers. This tract
was part of Dr. Vickers homeplace.
I have a great uncle by the name of James
Preston Vickers. He lives in Canton,
GA. I really don't know him that
well, but my father John Vickers does. Although, I do know that he does have alot of information on our history in several books.I do not know his phone# or address, but I'm sure
that it's in the Canton
phone book. If I can help you anymore, or if you would just like to chat, mail
me at firstname.lastname@example.org .Thanks for
something that we can all take pride in and be proud of. Regards, Bev Vickers
