This old farmstead still stood in the mid-1920s when this photo was taken (here a drawing.) Called Liberty Hall, Isaiah T. and Isabella Irvin lived here until their deaths in the 1850s, and all their children were born here. Here also, he and Isabella raised their granddaughter, Martha Brookes, who married Pat Stevens in 1853. When I was there with my grandfather Pat in the late 1950s, the house was near gone, but the graves remained. Irvin was one of the wealthiest planters in Wilkes Co., and is written of in the "Agrarian Arcadia," cited in the text. This drawing is courtesy of that book, also, and shows a typical north Georgia well-built home of the late eighteenth century.
