The Hickory nut and Upson vigil. October 2, 1833
Established in the early 19th century, the Hickory Nut and Upson Vigil was Upson County’s earliest publication. George Carey edited the newspaper from 1830 to 1836 in his office above what was Mitchell’s Harness Store at that time. The paper was delivered weekly to subscribers at a cost of two dollars and fifty cents (in advance) or three dollars (by end of the year). By 1837, the Hickory Nut was no longer printing and legal advertisements were published in Macon’s Georgia Messenger.
