Pope Family

My Great, Great, Grandfather, John Hewell Pope (13 Sep 1818 - 3 Nov. 1902) and Elmira Margaret (Aunt Mag) Pope (26 Apr 1857 - 24 Dec 1927)

Pope Family Farm House, circa 1902. This badly faded photo has been enhanced.  Three other pictures on this page have this house in the background. The picture to the right was made on the porch. The picture below has this farm house in the background. Aunt Mag is seated in front of this house (lower right). She said that Yankee soldiers left bullets in the wall of this house.  The Pope farm house is no longer standing. The old house site, and the adjacent Pope burial ground is on the grounds of Hartsfield Airport.

The location of this farm house is marked on Sherman's maps of the Battle of Atlanta, Plate LX.  The maps also indicate the nearby location of Pope's Cotton Gin, where the Pope family cemetery is now located.  Click on thumbnail..
