Fr. George:
I'll update this post later, but the original GOA 5th District (although I think in a few sources it is incorrectly identified as the 6th) was in Charlotte, NC.  I haven't as yet found a lot of information about its bishops.
Bishop Germanos (Polyzoides) of Hierapolis - 5th District (Charlotte): Post WWII to ??.  He either was replaced when he moved to NY to publish the Observer, or (like others who had to move elsewhere) he continued to administer the diocese.  He retired from active service in 1963.  According to the NY Times headline quoted in the sources for the Wiki article, in '41 he was ordained to be the bishop of the 2nd District (Chicago).

5th District became Diocese of Charlotte in '79, then Diocese of Atlanta in '80.
