Adam Underhill writes: I believe this was the residence of my great-great-grandfather, Cannie Swain Meadows, a Confederate veteran. I believe he is correct in his assertion. According to the listing on Find A Grave, where this circa 1910 postcard was originally shared by Olivia Williamson Braddy, Meadows (8 March 1843-15 August 1923) was a Corporal with Company H, 49th Georgia Infantry. He owned a dry goods store and hotel, as well as Tiger Springs, a recreational attraction on Tiger Creek. Cannie, as he was known, had 13 children, all but one of whom lived to adulthood; several lived well into their nineties.
Normantown is a very isolated community and the store is an essential part of the community. They sell everything from fish bait to health and beauty supplies.
