Dear Dr. Mabry,
The oldest highway in Bulloch County is also one of the oldest roads in the Southeastern United States. Once known as part of the "Path to Pensacola," Burkhalter Road was a very important part of the "Path to the Indian Nations," which started at the Savannah River near Brier Creek near present day Oliver, Georgia.

He had married to the Widow Maria Kraher (or Kroer) Mosshammer. In Augsburg they joined nearly 300 of these "Salzburgers" who had agreed to travel to the New World.

Oh, the eternal dinnertime struggle of kids who don’t eat their vegetables. There are countless recipes that advertise sneaky ways to cook and bake with vegetables, leaving your kids none the wiser.
