Veterans book now available from the Cherokee County Library
The Cherokee County Veteran's Book prepared by the Barry Springs
Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) is now available for
purchase at the Cherokee Co. Public Library. This book contains
pictures and a brief biography of men and women who served in the U.S.
Military after the Civil War. The cost is $20 per book if picked up at
the Library and $25 if mailed. The book is a memorial to the many men
and women who have served our country, and sincere appreciation goes to
them and their families.
Update April 2007
The library has had a microfilm reader for some time. They need a reader/printer. Any financial angels out there? The Heritage Books for all counties in Alabama are available in reference. The Cherokee County Heritage Book (there was only one volume) is still for sale for $60 on-site, or $65 shipped. John Aurbey's Coosa River News transcriptions are in stock for purchase. Volume 2 (1895-1905) is $20, and Volume 3 (1906-1915) is $28, if you pick them up. The genealogy column "Kin and Kith" no longer appears in The Post. A recent good find in the reference section is "Diary of Miss Nannie Cathey, Cathey Gap, Floyd County, Georgia," compiled by an anonymous Cathey descendant. Cathey Gap was another name for "The Narrows" at Coosa, Georgia. Her Civil War era diary mentions many people who lived and died around Coosa, Georgia during those times. She attended Sardis Presbyterian Church which still stands at the west end of The Narrows, and shows on modern topographic maps at topozone.com.
