Note: The following is part of a series of columns looking at the founding and general history of southeast Georgia and Bulloch County. The community of Bloys was located northeast of Metter near the headwaters of Lotts Creek. It became famous in some circles when the shrub “Elliottia Racemosa” (a Labrador Tea plant named after Dr. Stephen Elliott, the author of “The Botany of South Carolina and Georgia”) was re-discovered in the early 19th century by botanist Roland M. Harper, who came to visit local resident professor J.W. Hendricks.
