Wilbur Kurtz’s Archival Description:
(116) Here was located the now vanished town of Old Cross Keys – Circa, 1845-1870. James Reeves was storekeeper and Postmaster.
On July 18th, 1864, troops of the Federal 16th and 23rd Corps passed this way, en route to Atlanta – the 16th turned eastward here – the 23d southward. General W.T. Sherman rode with the 23rd Corpse.
(At crossroads – (near large oak tree) north of H. Cobb Caldwell’s residence on Peachtree Road. Old Cross Keys site is not on Peachtree Road, however, but on the road to the left of Caldwell house as you face toward its front.)
