Read your messages under Alabama Wyches and Wyche planation. My grandmother was Sallie Wyche from Thomasville, Georgia (Thomas County). Her father was Henry Wyche (b.1812-d.about 1891). The Wyches started several plantations in this area. Littleton Wyche,Henry's father, started Mill Pond Plantation, which still exists. Henry Wyche owned Melrose and later Cedar Lawn. Today, Melrose has been restored and functions as an elegant Bed and Breakfast inn. The owners have preserved the history by naming the rooms for the early owners along with many old pictures. MELROSE is of special interest to me as it was there my grandmother was born. I visit there each time I go to Thomasville. The name has been changed to MELHANNA. ( combining Melrose and Hanna, a former owner). I am presently working on a biography of Henry Wyche so I was interested in your Wyche connections. I would love to swap stories with you.
