  2. The Brown/Blountsville ridge mentioned in the story, could you be a little more specific? I didn’t read the entire story, but I’ve always been curious about a low ridge line that follows the stretch of U.

It is said my gggg grandfather was born in the Sequatchie Valley, and I could never quite pinpoint why he would have been born there. His brother and family settled up in Paint Rock, AL. I now believe the family came down from northeast Tennessee to scout out the cheap Indian land.
