Our name, Gray Ghost plantation, derived from three things: the owner was walking the property on a foggy morning inspecting timber with a friend. Upon walking up a draw, they both stopped in there tracks to admire a large older whitetail deer. They could tell he was a mature buck with a gray coat and a large rack. He was standing in the fog up to his chest. They immediately looked at one another with a surprised look. They both looked back, and within a few seconds, the buck disappeared without a sound.
The second reason for the name was that the plantation’s original size was much larger in size. It was approximately fifty-five hundred acres of hunting land and planted farm fields. Back in the civil war, the plantation was owned by a man named Eli Stewart, who was a Captain in the civil war. In the civil war, they sometimes referred to Confederate soldiers as gray ghosts. Captain Eli Stewart’s gravesite remains on the plantation today next to his wife.
The third and final reason may not be significant to most. However, it is to the owner. The next generation to manage the plantation is Giana Gilbert, their daughter. Her initials are G.G. as well as Gray Ghost. As a result, that is how the Georgia hunting plantation was named.
