In 1854, he, his wife, and four children settled in a comfortable house one block from here. An expert merchant and a learned man, he became actively identified at once with the progress of Talbotton. From this humble beginning, Lazarus Straus and his sons, Isidor, Nathan, and Oscar, reached the pinnacle of success in the business, political, and civic affairs of our nation. 130-8 GEORGIA HISTORICAL COMMISSION 1958" Top of sign: Georgia 1776 emblem
