    Ivy Duggan (my double great grandfather) was not the first to receive a teaching certificate in Georgia. This was verified by the Department of Education. However, Ivy proved to be a prominent and well-loved professor throughout his entire adult life.

    You may be interested in knowing as well, that the pictured home received many unwelcomed Union soldiers in it, in December 1864. I have Susan Reynolds (Ivy Duggan’s wife) letter that describes that visit to her home and to the town.

    Frances, I am marketing the Ivey Duggan house for the current home owner. Would love to have a copy of the letter to include in the history of the house.
