Stembridge road was also engineered by my father,
Roger W. Stembridge, Sr. Daddy was a West Point Graduate, fought in W.W.I and W.W.II. He engineered the road about the start of W.W.II so I am told. Daddy was the resident Engineer at old Milledgevile State Hospital until his death, September 28, 1960. His wife, Mildred Cox Stembridge lived until May 4, 1995. For the longest Stembridge Road was called the Lower Sandersville Road, and in the 1970’s it was changed to
Stembridge Road to honor my father.

February 2, 1999When my Dad moved back to georgia, and bought a house down in Hancock Co., He began finding links to our past. One of the many net finds is Stembridge Rd, in Baldwin Co. This was once a driveway to the Stembridge Farm. The farm property is still owned by cousin Roger Stembridge, the house burned burn within the last 10 years or so. My dad’s paternal Grandmother (my Great-Grandmother), Clara I’Della Stembridge is buried on the farm. She has a stained glass window dedicated to her at the Milledgeville United Methodist Church. Stembridge Rd. is about 7 1/2 miles long, a number of people live on the Road.
