Waresboro is an unincorporated community in Ware County, Georgia, United States. It is located west of Waycross. The community is part of the Waycross Micropolitan Statistical Area. According to the Waycross Journal Herald dated November 13, 1975, Louise Mock donated the oldest home in Ware County to the Okeefenokee Heritage Center. The text of the caption of the photo that appeared on that date reads as follows: OLDEST HOME DONATED -- The oldest regular house in Ware County, the Thomas Hillard House in Waresboro, has been given by Louise Mock to the Okeefenokee Heritage Center. Mrs. Mock (left) and Mrs. S.W. Clark (right) discuss the history of the old home built in the 1830's which stands at the corner of Church Street and Old Stagecoach Road, the old dirt highway which led from Milledgville to Albany, according to Mrs. Clark. The home is the only one in the county which is of the old Williamsburg style of architecture and has great historic value as the home of Col. Thomas Hilliard, a relative of Cuyler Hilliard founder of Waycross. The house will be moved to the Heritage Center property and restored to its natural state with the wide board walls, columns and new, shingle roof to replace the tin roof on it now. Mrs. Clark said they are trying to establish the house as the oldest one in Ware County and asked anyone with knowledge of an older one to contact her at the Heritage Center.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Waresboro Georgia

What is asbestos and mesothelioma litigation?

Mesothelioma is caused by asbestos exposure. Asbestos, once regarded as a miracle mineral, was popular due its lightweight but tough characteristics as well as for its heat-resistant properties. This naturally occurring mineral was used in many commercial and consumer products, from construction materials such as cement, roofing shingles and insulation, to consumer and industrial applications such as hair dryers, automobile brake pads and pipe insulation.

Mesothelioma is an asbestos-related cancer which forms in the lining of the chest or abdominal cavities on the mesothelium - the sac lining the internal body cavities. Mesothelioma cases involve those who have suffered adverse health effects from exposure to asbestos on the job, in consumer products, or in the environment.

Asbestos and mesothelioma litigation are a type of toxic tort litigation.
