  Henry County has been growing so much lately that some places are becoming unrecognizable. In an effort to preserve some of the history of our community, The Times is displaying photos of Henry County from the past. If you can name the persons or place shown above, write us at and tell us about it. In the next edition, we’ll reveal the location of the picture and notes readers send us. Photo courtesy of Henry/Clayton Genealogical Society. Visit the Genealogical Society at 71 Macon Street (in the Brown House) in McDonough Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Last Week's Picture

  Thanks to Bobby Russell for bringing in this photo of Si and Kim Elliot at a Hawaiian Party at the Russell’s home in McDonough in 1972. Si and Bobby were in the first grade together.

  Christine Hurst tells us “This is my beloved Uncle Si Elliott and his beautiful and also beloved wife, Myong Kim Elliott. Si and Kim have been active members of the community for a long time. Si was born here, on Elliott Road, and still lives on property that has been in the family since Mary Cloud Elliott and her children came to settle here in the early 1800’s.  Kim is a talented artist, and owned Kim's Flowers and Gifts on the Square for many years. Our family is so blessed to have them. My mom, Dorothy Bryans Elliott, was Si’s oldest sister. His two surviving sisters are Marcella Elliott Mote and Betty Elliott Davis. Marcella is a well known and much beloved member of the McDonough community, and Betty has lived in Cobb County most of her adult life, running White Columns Chapel.”

  Nathaniel Ellis tells us that “this photo was taken at Bobby and Betty Russell’s home. Included are Georgia Mae Ellis (my sweet mother), Mr. and Mrs. Elliott and Ms. Margery Christy (in the background).”

  Thanks also to Diane Cardell for identifying the photo.


  We have been informed by several readers that we made a mistake in identifying the gas station in last week’s As it Was photo. Houston Joyner and Buddy Upchurch tell us that there never has been an Esso station on the Square, and the bathrooms are on the wrong side for the Welcome Center. Thanks for setting us straight!

Have a picture of Henry County as it was? Send it to us at or 35 Griffin Street, McDonough, GA. 30253. All pictures will be handled carefully and returned to owner.
