Kaaren Tramonte of Blendin Georgia followed her curiosity. She knows everything about Powder Springs’ history, but she was intrigued with Hangman’s Hill off of Kennesaw Avenue in Marietta. 

 

So she did her research (it’s in a private homes yard) and went on newspaper.com and found the details to area where convicted criminals were hanged in Cobb County. 

 

Albert Lingo’s story was really cool and I followed up my interview with Christa McCay of Marietta Museum of History. Why kill his brother-in-law in broad daylight? Why did he want to take his sister’s husband away?Why did he want to be buried in a walnut casket?

 

 Interesting stuff…

Megan can now see the beauty in her everyday life, but there was a time when that was a struggle. 11 years ago, when her daughter and first child was born with severe allergies, she struggled to make it through each day. 

 

During this time of being a new mom to a child with elevated needs, she began capturing photos in the every day moments with her daughter. Through this passion she realized she was capturing so much beauty in the hard moments.

 

As she continued to push herself artistically as a documentary storyteller, she began her photography business after she lost her mom to a terminal illness. Her work began to receive recognition in photography groups, publications and was featured in art gallery shows. 

 

After taking time to plant roots in Marietta and spending more time with her family, Megan is back taking photos with a new passion for film photography and has started a healthy living business.

JC Curlee had a lot to figure out on her own. She had a son that wanted to go to college, but needed money. Through hard work and a lot of google searches and forms, her son had over one million in scholarships and several college acceptance letters.

She knows how hard it was and people started reaching out to her for help. Then she realized she could create resources to help others. She started the parent resources network and is adding a podcast soon.
