18 booklets, documents, brochures and more have been added to our site thanks to our new partner, LaGrange Public Library. There is a body of work written by native of the region Mary Elizabeth Gray titled, LaGrange: Origin and History. You can also read Gray’s autobiography, The Thirteenth Child on our website. There is more genealogical information available about locals in The Croom Family (Volume 1) and The Croom Family (Volume 2). You can also find information about Hickory Grove United Methodist Church, Sandy Bottom Baptist Church‘s centennial celebration, and Wheat Swamp Christian Church.
