  3. Hey Sonya,
    Thanks for your interest in our Georgia Historic Newspapers website. You might search through our collection of newspapers from Summerville, which is the seat of Chattooga County. You could also look through our newspapers from LaFayette, Calhoun, and Rome. They are all located nearby and might have covered news from Chattooga County. Hope this helps!
