The Groover Brothers

Brothers Gene and Parks Groover at a Bell or Varner Reunion.   Gene retired as a Georgia State Patrolman and lives in Dalton.  Parks retired as part of owner of Marietta Lighting and lives in Waleska.

They are the descendants  of the owner of the historical Groover Hardware on the Square in downtown Marietta.  I think I read that the rope that hanged Leo Frank was bought in their ancestor's store.

Gene had an interesting adventure a few years ago.  He and a friend navigated a houseboat miles up a river in north Georgia and lived to tell some interesting stories about it.
