      Big Holly Cabin - This heart pine cabin is one of the few remaining
      examples of a single pen (room) cabin built
      when this was the Georgia mountain frontier. The hand-hewn logs
      are joined with full-dove tail corner notching and the logs are chinked
      on the interior with wooden battens. This type of cabin was once
      plentiful, but they usually evolved into double pen cabins or larger
      houses with frame additions.

      In 1820, Haywood English built a log house on unclaimed Land Lot 85,
      District 11, near the Chattahoochee River. In 1841, the original lottery
      recipient of this lot belately laid claim to it. In a series of legal actions,
      which eventually ended in the Georgia Supreme Court, English lost
      his plea of "sitters rights" and moved to this location. Family legend
      contents this to be the same log house initially built on Land Lot 85 in
      1820, and moved to this location in 1849. The cabin was restored
      by a descendent of the English family in 1986-87.

      NOTE: This individual is not connected to any other ENGLISH family
      members in this tree at this time. I simply have not been able
      to prove how he is connected. Hopefully, proof will come soon.

      He may be the brother to John Wesley ENGLISH, who was born in 1804. I am currently seeking proof of this.
