The second weekend of June on Sunday, we meet at the McWhorter Cemetery in Maxeys in the morning around 11:00 a.m. for a brief memorial gathering and prayer, then off to lunch. Carol and Jim Woodall and their sister Lucia Smalls have hosted last several years and we are so thankful for their hospitality, however this year for something a little different and in honor of the McWhorter History in Lexington, GA we are hosting the lunch in Lexington. You will all really enjoy the location and if you would like to make a weekend of it, there are some rooms available at the Hummingbird B&B next door, The Chicken Coop B&B in Crawford as well as invites to put up family from friends in the area.
The stretch of Highway that runs through Lexington is named for Hamilton McWhorter, Jr, who is well at 98 in Atlanta, the 1887 Courthouse and Old Jailhouse carry the legacy of being constructed under the watchful eye of the then Chairman of the County Commissioners another Hamilton McWhorter, Shaking Rock Park just around the corner was donated to the community by yet other McWhorter descendants, Other McWhorter's James Hamilton, son of Hugh and Helena Ligon, his eldest son Joseph Hugh and their grandchild Matt McWhorter were all raised here and contributed in a large way both to local and state growth in the past two centuries.
