W. B. W. Dent Owned Stone Mountain (Tombstone Tuesday)

Yet another neat tidbit of information from Georgia historian Lucian Lamar Knight:

"Hon. W. B. W. Dent was another resident of Coweta [County] who served in the National House of Representatives. He was not a lawyer but a merchant, possessed of an unusual capacity for public affairs. Mr. Dent at one time owned Stone Mountain." [Georgia's Landmarks, Memorials and Legends (1914), pg. 492.]

William Barton Wade Dent rests at Oak Hill Cemetery in Newnan, Georgia:
