  Henry County has been growing so much lately that some places are becoming unrecognizable. In an effort to preserve some of the history of our community, The Times is displaying photos of Henry County from the past. If you can name the persons or place shown above, write us at and tell us about it. In the next edition, we’ll reveal the location of the picture and notes readers send us. Photo courtesy of Henry/Clayton Genealogical Society. Visit the Genealogical Society at 71 Macon Street (in the Brown House) in McDonough Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Last Week's Picture

  Thanks to Ann Goodson, Sherry Carmichael, Otis Hammock, Buddy Upchurch, Lottie Ford and Terry Tyson for writing in to tell us that this is Paul Cates and Jimmy Stroud in Planters Warehouse in McDonough.

  Joe Anderson called to identify the picture as Planters Warehouse in the late 60s or early 70s. He said, “The older gentleman is Jim Stroud, Sr. and the young guy is Paul Cates.” Joe said he used to work there. He said, “Paul, I didn’t think it took that many pens to run the warehouse.”

  Jim Stroud also wrote to tell us that this is his dad, Jimmy Stroud and Paul Cates in Planters Warehouse and Lumber Co on Keys Ferry Street. He thinks it is around 1970.

Have a picture of Henry County as it was? Send it to us at or 35 Griffin Street, McDonough, GA. 30253. All pictures will be handled carefully and returned to owner.
