I've been there a few times. Tiger Ridge is famous in Georgia for being the most inbred place on the planet since the French kings of the 1700s.
I received THIS in an email today:
The Tiger Ridgers tend to be either Edwards or Atchleys, from what a few who hail from there tell me. I'm doing a research on them for my master's thesis.
There are some good people there, and while there maybe some folk who are twice cousins or whatever, you simply should not judge them, especially if you all are not in any position to really know them or help them out.
Do not go there to gawk, or to make fun. I've had a friend who was locked up for precisely that, when he and his Navy buddies accidentally rode in there while returning to base from a night out in Savannah.
Another source tells me that a Tiger Ridger will just as soon kill you and throw you into the river for gator bait as look at you.
Having said this, if you are interested in helping me make some contacts who will tell me the real story of Tiger Ridge, how the Feds came in back in the 30's or 40's and moved some people out to keep them from breeding in too much, then kindly contact me.
Thank you sir, and have a good day.
Wanna help the guy out? I have his email address.
