Number 89 for 160 shares to George R Eager in 1883. Signed by HH Hamett and Joseph Kinsey. Eagr signs on back. Some pinholes and light discoloration. Nice condition. The Ellijay Railroad, incorporated in 1854, was the first attempt to build a rail line from Marietta to the north Georgia mountains. It was followed by the Marietta, Canton & Ellijay Railroad, but neither it nor the Ellijay RR managed to build any tracks. The Marietta & North Georgia Railroad had much more success in attracting investment (including state assistance through convict labor). Construction on the 3-ft gauge line started in 1874, and the line from Marietta to Canton was completed in May 1879. It was extended to Ballground in 1882, Marble Cliff in 1883, Ellijay in 1884, and Murphy, NC, in early 1887. [railroads of Georgia online] Eager was involved with other railroads including the Cincinnati, Rockport & Southwestern and the Louisville & Nashville.
