Callie Still and the Ozora Community

Does anyone know where the still was located or any history? I assume it was a whiskey still ran by a man with last name Callie. Due to all of the real estate ads, it's very difficult for me to websearch any relevant information.

Also, any history or land plots available of the Ozora, New Hope, and Chandler communities/farmsteads?

I'm not new to Georgia, but new to Gwinnett. It's a shame so much info was lost in the courthouse fire, I've been spoiled by wonderful archives in the last two towns I lived in (Kennesaw and Athens).

I believe it was actually named for the Still family in the area - specifically Callie D. Still (1897-1977) buried at Pleasant Grove Baptist.

Land information is spotty between the 1820 Land Lottery and 1872 when records begin. Some records survived the fire and some wills/deeds were rerecorded.
