Bochee can be found on the 1915 Hudgins’ Map of Georgia. It served as a post office between 1900 and 1904. The location on the map appears to be west of the Grassdale community which is located at Cassville-White Road and Old Grassdale Road. Several items were found in the community section of The Cartersville News during the year 1905. The January 11 edition quotes “the school opened up last Tuesday with a very good attendance with Miss Mamie Sax on as principal and Miss Maggie Irick as assistant”. The November 16 edition quotes “O. U. Glasgow & Company as doing a big ginning business at the place” and “Polk Wilson is running his planing mill and is doing some fine work”. Please contact the Etowah Valley Historical Society with any additional information about Bochee.
