Who Do I Think I am? Wow! part 11

Above - Downtown Helen, Georgia.

England Family – while we are up the England family tree, Daniel and Peggy England’s parents William Richard and Margaret “Patsy” Montgomery England founded Helen, Georgia. It became a farming community. Now, it is resort community. The buildings downtown are made to look like buildings in the Swiss Aps.

The England family are buried in a little cemetery near the center of town, by the Chattahoochee River. There are not tombstone markers but big unmarked rocks in the cemetery.

- From an assortment of facts in the book "LIVING ON THE UNICOI ROAD" by Matt Gedney.

Coincidentally, We spent our Honeymoon near Helen at the Unicoi State Park.
