Hephzibah Historical Events

1985, May 29
On May 29, 1985, there was a girl child born to Michael and Brenda Harris. Her name is Hephszibah Harris. She was named after her grandmother whose name is also Hephszibah. She, I, just recently found out that there is a town that has the same name as me in Georgia. I think that it is something very cool and that I am very special to have such a beautiful name that is also a city in Georgia.
