Preserving Community Names

In researching our family history, most of us have run across the names of communities that are no longer recognized by persons living in the county today. In Sevier County, a group is doing what they can to make sure that those historic names become more recognized. Fox, Sims, Blowing Cave, Birds, Jones Chapel, and Cannon's Store are a few names that were used by previous generations. A few names such as Catons Chapel, Richardsons Cove, and Fair Garden are still recognized today. The entire article is available in the Mountain Press.
