John "Cousin John" Thrasher:
Founded Atlanta, GA by building the embankments for the railroad and opening a commissary for the Irish workers there. It was origially called Thrasherville, then Terminus, Marthasville, and finally in 1847, Atlanta. This is commemorated by a plaque on the Federal Reserve Bank on Merietta St. near the original site of the first business in Atlanta. He also started Norcross and named it for his friend and former mayor of Atlanta. He moved to Pasco county FL in 1870, after the war.

Cousin John Thrasher famous as a hotelkeeper in different towns of Georgia for many years, kept the Newnan Hotel at this time, and gave a dinner to which practically the whole town attended. Every man, woman, child and negro (I suppose) who knew him, called him Cousin John.

John J. Thrasher, called "Cousin John," came from Atlanta to build his home in 1870 and became the first mayor of Norcross, named after a friend and business associate named Jonathan Norcross.
Mr. Thrasher served as the town's first mayor from 1870 to 1878, and one of his visions was a city park that would not be used for commerce. The Norcross city park, named Thrasher Park after its founder, is still the center of Norcross, lined with stately Victorian homes, stores, and bordered by the railroad

During most of August 1864, General John B. Hood, commander in chief of Confederate troops around Atlanta, occupied Thrasher’s home as his headquarters, just prior to its ransacking by Sherman’s Army. John Thrasher served the Confederacy by making salt in Florida , but little else is known of his military service except that his family remained in the house until General Hood took it over. After that, they stayed with relatives.

John Thrasher (February 24, 1818-November 13, 1899) was the founder of the city of Norcross, Georgia, an original pioneer of Atlanta, and a well-travelled entrepreneur throughout the American Southeast.
In 1839, Thrasher was hired to do work on the terminus of the Western and Atlantic Railroad. His work crew lived in the area of what is now downtown Atlanta. During the construction Thrasher built homes for his workers and a general store. Nicknamed "Thrasherville" instead of its official name (given by the railroad), "Terminus", it was the first development of the area. Thrasher himself purchased a large amount of land in Whitehall which is now the site of West End, a neighborhood of Atlanta just southwest of the city center. This area was originally supposed to have been the zero-mile marker of the railroad and Thrasher expected enough traffic generated to bring business to the grocery store he built and to spur development on his land. In 1842, Lemual Grant, a railroad employee, donated land just northeast of Whitehall to the railroad and the terminus was moved. Thrasher was so disgusted by this that he sold his land at a significant loss and moved to Griffin, Georgia. In 1844 Thrasher married and moved back to Atlanta opening another store on Peachtree Street. He became active in local politics and became a state legislator representing Fulton County. It wasn't until after the Civil War and the destruction of Atlanta that he became deeply involved in Atlanta politics. He was instrumental in opening Atlanta's first jail, its first school, and its streetcars.
In 1870 Thrasher moved northeast of the city along the Richmond-Danville Railroad and founded the town of Norcross, named after Thrasher's good friend, Jonathan Norcross, the second mayor of Atlanta. Thrasher quickly turned Norcross into a vacation destination with a resort hotel he built. He was an active philanthropist in Norcross, donating houses to clergy and donating land for a park, now called Thrasher Park in downtown Norcross. A daily train ran between Norcross and Atlanta, perhaps the first commuter train in Georgia. Thrasher built the first public school in Norcross, attended by students who walked upwards of two miles each way.
In 1878 his wanderlust struck again and he moved to South Carolina, where he built a restaurant on the train line that went from Atlanta to Washington, D.C.. Sometime in the late 1880's or early 1890's, Thrasher and his wife followed his sons to Dade City, Florida, where he grew oranges. He never abandoned the railroads however, and was instrumental in bringing the railroads to that town. Adding to Thrasher's legacy is his great-grandson, Robert W. Woodruff, the great Atlanta philanthropist and CEO of Coca Cola from 1923 to 1939.
