Capturing Local History
May 2021

City and JC Historical Society partner to capture local history

City of Johns Creek's Bob Mullen and Connor McFadden interviewed and filmed the "Taylor Sisters", Beverly Thompson and Jean Miller, on-site at the Rogers-Bell cemetery in partnership with the historical society. The two sisters grew up on Rogers Bridge Road on the Taylor farm near the old Rogers Bridge that will soon be dismantled and replaced with a pedestrian bridge in the same location. During filming, the sisters reminisced about the importance of the bridge, their family's ties to the land over the past 200 years, and life in rural Shakerag during their youth.
