Georgia home journal. June 22, 1877


In November 1872, Reverend Joshua Knowles partnered with Henry C. Billings to publish the Georgia Home Journal in Greensboro and Madison, Georgia. The paper was a weekly Democratic newspaper that circulated at a subscription cost of two dollars per year. Billings, publisher of the Madison Appeal and Real Estate Advertiser, ceased publication of that title in order to publish the Home Journal. Knowles, a former editor of the Macon Georgia Journal and Messenger and Athens Southern Recorder, was editor-in-chief while Billings held the role of publisher. In 1875, H. W. Baldwin joined the Home Journal to edit its Madison editions while Knowles edited the issues published in Greensboro. Knowles dissolved his partnership with Billings in 1877 and formed a stock company titled J. Knowles & Son to manage the Georgia Home Journal in Greensboro. J. Knowles retired from editorial duties in 1880, leaving his son, W. Addison Knowles, to manage the paper. In December 1886, Addison Knowles purchased the Greensboro Herald and merged the paper with the Georgia Home Journal to form the Herald and Journal. After a number of ownership changes, the Herald and Journal became the Herald-Journal and continues to publish as Greene County’s legal organ.
