13-Mar-2001 -- On our way to this confluence, we crossed the Altamaha River on the John C. Beasley Memorial Bridge (Photo 6). This bridge was named for our great-uncle, a former director of the Georgia Highway Department. It was originally built in the 1940s to replace a wooden bridge named the Mills Lane bridge. It was named for the grandfather of the judge and referee of the infamous Mike Tyson/Evander Holifield ear-biting boxing match.
Photo 1 was our attempt to show the GPS reading, but unfortunately it didn’t come out. Behind it, you can see the tilled ground of the field at the confluence site. Photo 2 shows Matthew pointing at the site of the confluence in a field just off the road. Photo 3 looks back to the southwest at Michael and the truck. This is the intersection of two dirt county roads (Co. Rd. 253 and Co. Rd. 256). Photo 4 is looking to the North, and Photo 5 looks down 253 toward the East, and a home with some barking dogs. We found an old "for deposit" Pepsi-Cola bottle in the ditch at the confluence. We got back in the truck just as the rain started.
