Daniel-Long House, Girard

Among the houses I’ve encountered in Georgia, this is an unusual form of the Queen Anne style. Dale Reddick writes: Folks from around the Girard area are saying this was the home of Mr. Frank and Mrs. Sybil Long. He worked for Southern Bell. Two individuals have agreed on the identification.

Karen Long Davis writes: This post makes my heart happy! This old farmhouse was built by my Great Grandfather for my grandmother Annette Mobley Daniel and my grandfather Albert Bruce Daniel. My mother Sybil Ann Daniel Long and her sister Miriam Daniel Zook were both born in this home. I grew up spending a great deal of time at the old home place! It included 40 acres of which about 30+ acres were planted in pecan trees (Some of which were planted by my mother and her father , which were a source of income for the farm not only during the Depression, but throughout the years! So many stories and memories for me!! Unfortunately, I had to sell the place and it has gone in disrepair…but the memories remain!!!

        Hey Brian – Folks in two groups are discussing who’s house it was. I suspect a true identification will be offered up, soon.

    Brian, I am so happy for you in the endeavor you started so long long ago. Your documentation is going to be historically priceless as time goes on – if not already. Yes, I am very jealous!!! With all you have documented, no other photographer can or will be able to compete with what you are accomplishing. Just thought you would like to hear/read some nice words concerning all your wonderful efforts. Keep it up – as I know you will!!!
