This Day in Georgia History

April 21, 1899

Tomochichi Memorial Dedicated

A large granite boulder with a plaque honoring Tomochichi was dedicated in Savannah. It had been requested by the Georgia Society of Colonial Dames of America and furnished by the Stone Mountain Company in Atlanta. Tomochichi died on Oct. 5, 1739, so 1899 would have marked the 160th anniversary of his death. The inscription reads:

In Memory of Tomo-Chi-Chi The Mico of the Yamacraws The Companion of Oglethorpe And the Friend and Ally of the Colony of Georgia This Stone Has Been Here Placed By the Georgia Society of the Colonial Dames of America 1739 1899
