This is an amazing photo. Not only is it a great shot, there's something very special about it. Look in the middle of the picture to see a heart in the trees and then look to the left to see the image of a man extending his hand. Could this be the spirit of Daniel Boone thanking us with all his heart? Thank you Roberta Mills of Oregon for sharing this wonderful photography with us.

This is my great-great-great grandmother Bethenia "Stella" Vineyard Stevens (1817-1904), in front of her farmhouse in the Vineland area. She was born in Botetourt Co., VA, and came west with her family in a wagon train through the Cumberland Gap when she was 9 years old.Her father, Peter Vineyard, was a farmer, blacksmith, and wagon maker. She married William "BIllie" Stevens. They had 11 children: James, Martha, Mary, Mark, Lucy, Vance Reed, George, Dudley, Marie, Susan, and Alice.

Here is a video of the dedication of the Boone's Trace at Cumberland Gap.
Why on Earth are people so up in arms over this bear in Robertson County? They act like we aren't supposed to have bears here. I for one would be excited to know that bears were living in my woods! Bears were inhabiting our area long before Daniel Boone crossed the Cumberland Gap. It was thanks to human encroachment and development, that we have not seen bears in this part of Kentucky for so long. I am glad to see the bears making a come back. It's not like Black Bears are blood thirsty killers who set out to attack humans. If stupid people (the ones who get mauled because they tormented the bear) would let bears have their space everyone can co-exist peacefully. Hats off to our Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources for their management of bear populations in Kentucky. Perhaps seeing a bear and her cubs while I'm taking a stroll in the woods will be as common as a deer and a fawn in the future.
Good morning brother &sisters ..this is going thru Cumberland Gap tunnel , oh how I enjoyed it , I hope y ' all do, too.

Waveland State Historic Site, also known as the Joseph Bryan House, in Lexington, Kentucky is the site of a Greek Revival home and plantation now maintained and operated as part of the Kentucky state park system. It was the home of the Joseph Bryan family, who followed Daniel Boone through the Cumberland Gap, and became an early settler and horseman of this region.

Daniel Boone was one fascinating fellow. I bet you didn't know. -He didn't always know what he wanted to do with his life. During his early years he was a wagoner and blacksmith. -He was a really hard worker. With the help of just a handful of friends, he cleared the trail through the Cumberland Gap in 1769. This became the highway to the frontier. -He ran with a good crowd. He was born in 1734, George Washington was born in 1732, and Thomas Jefferson was born in 1743. All three knew each other personally and were buddies. -He was always getting captured. He was nabbed on 3 different occasions by Indians. -He was darn popular. He was elected to the Virginia Legislature 3 times. -He sure liked kids. He and his wife, Rebecca, had 10 children. Learn more about Daniel Boone the frontiersman, explorer, and American legend as portrayed by the talented Steven Caudill at this year's Gathering at Garst.

Champion H. Powell Champion H. Powell lived from 3 July 1841 to 31 December 1925. He was married to Angeline Cowart (5 June 1850-31 December 1899). Several sources including the 1850 and 1860 Census and his wife’s gravestone say Champion (or Champ) C. Powell. What’s there to say about Champ Powell? Has enough time passed since his passing (1925) so we can be complete in our telling of his life? I will try. From local and descendants stories and his compiled service record, I’ve learned that during the Civil War his father said that to survive, he should go to Chattanooga and enlist in the US Army. Apparently he had been a Confederate soldier based on a question asked by the pension board and answered by him. Was the Home Guard now threatening him? Perhaps several of his brothers had been killed in the Confederate Army. He did make that trip, a walking trip to Chattanooga where he joined the US Army thus becoming not the only Union soldier from Georgia. I’m disappointed to have never found a photog ...

By lunchtime, we're partly sunny with temps in the 80's. A few isolated bubble up showers and storms are again possible this afternoon, mainly along the Cumberland PKWY and towards the Cumberland Gap. Highs are expected in the mid 80's with a mix of sunshine and a few clouds. We'll clear things out tonight as temps drop into the upper 50's & low 60's.

Happy Hikers on the Wilderness and Tri-State trails today at Cumberland Gap NP
Here is a old road, US25. Three States meet here. Until around 1996. This road was closed due to deaths and killing in wrecks. It was a dangerous road in the mountains. A new tunnel was built around 1996 making 4 lane travel through the famous Cumberland Gap safer. On this road is a Cave, known as King Solomon's Cave. It is not a open cave anymore due to a rockslide/cave in/collapse. You will find it around page 22 or so. Anyhow, here is the Cumberland Gap History that reaches back to 1775 on our Nation's History and back tens of thousands of years beyond that towards the earlier days of Human Life here on the Earth as Buffalo traveled this gap seeking good grazing lands in seasons of change. If you happen to look up the old road in maps, you will need to pull up maps made earlier than 1980 that way you can be assured to find the original road itself. Most of it has been literally pulled up and restored back to Nature with the Pavement removed after 1996. Enjoy.
Heard in Sav-A-Lot this afternoon,that the business there had really picked up since Winn Dixie took over.They had very good specials,Kraft mayonnaise after coupon $1.99, beautiful babyback ribs with the tenderloin attached,Ball Park hot dogs, oscar myer hot dogs, cumberland gap bacon, butterball turkey bacon and bolonga $1.00.Ben doesn't know turkey bacon from the other.Also saw a lady in there from Adel,she said the Harveys had switched to BI-LOand the prices were outrageous. just sayin.
Thirty years ago this week, I arrived in Knoxville to earn my doctorate in industrial and organizational psychology. Accepted into four different doctoral programs, I chose UT over Tulane, Colorado State, and Missouri St. Lewis. It was a tough choice, but I chose Knoxville because I love the mountains and wild places of Tennessee, and I love the Appalachian culture and music. Appalachia runs deep in my blood, also. When Daniel Boone went through the Cumberland Gap into Kentucky, Aaron Van Cleave came with him. Squire Boone married Aaron's daughter Jane. I am descended from Aaron.

Continuing on the Background of Coal River Please keep in mind that I am typing this exactly as it is on the paper.spelling errors, duplicate words, etc. I feel that the more authentic it is, the better it is. THE WHITE MAN COMES TO BIG COAL pg 2 The first white man on Coal Ricer was John Salley, who explored the area on his way to New Orleans. He found coal near Racine in 1742 and named the stream Coal River, but he did not come upriver to this area. The first white man to come to Marsh Fork District (and Raleigh Co.) was Doctor Thomas Walker in 1750. He was given 800,000 acres of land north of the Virginia-North Carolina border. So he set out to find the best land for his company. He left southern Virginia and crossed through the Cumberland Gap into Tennessee and Kentucky to what is now Logan. Cumberland Gap was named for the Duke of Cumberland who had helped secure the land grant. From Logan, he crossed the Pond Fork to Boone County, down Hazy Creek and camped at its mouth at Edwight. From there he c . ...

Day 4- Releasing Glory Fires of Kentucky We got word this evening ( from the wonderful pastor who hosted us in Glasgow) that 7 churches in Glasgow had glorious services Sunday morning. In Four of the seven - During praise and worship Father moved and people were set free and the pastors never got to preach! The Red River horses are running! We worshipped yesterday afternoon atop 'Kingdom Come Mountain' amidst a very strong wind. in Harlen County Kentucky (Justified)! It was just glorious! We then worshipped down Penyllwn Street in the town of Cumberland Gap. ( Ray Hughes wanted us to glory there) Penyllwn was named after those who sing in the streets - "the song of the tongue" they would sing spontaneously, that is the essence of Penyllwn- synergy that comes from grabbing the language of God in the moment! It is in the DNA of the people Well, that is us! Hallelujah what a glorious few days.
The MetroKnoxville Track and Field meet is the last regular season meet for 2014 so often coaches pick and choose events for an athlete to perform a season best or gain a qualifying mark for the TSSAA Sectional Meets scheduled for next week. The big events for the day were both by Rusty Provins of Cumberland Gap with an outstanding Discus toss of 170 feet and a huge Shot Put of 59 feet. Both of these throws rank Rusty as the best in Tennessee for 2014 at this point in the season. The Maryville Girls team was first in the MetroKnoxville meet with 182 points, with Oak Ridge finishing third scoring 73. The highlight for OR Girls team was Hannah Craig in the Pole Vault with a School Record jump of 11-0 ft. Winning events for OR were Caelyn Thomson in the High Jump clearing 4 feet 10 inches and the 4x100 relay of Lauren Smallwood, Caelyn Thomson, Toni Sheetz, Tara Wilson running 51.68 seconds.

Just some ideas for camping that would have good motorcycle roads. 1- Cumberland Gap NP. Camping only and a nice ride would be to the Portal where you can take a coal mining tram into a mine for a tour. Then over Black Mountain into Virginia circle around back through Tennessee and over the Cumberland Gap. 2-Natural Bridge State Park. Camping and a lodge for any who prefer a comfy bed. Plenty of directions to ride from there. 3-Pickett State Park. Camping and some cabins. Don't know much about the park rode past it last year and it looked promising from the road. 4 -Anywhere else someone has an idea. I don't care as long as we can ride.
UPDATE: Sunnyside Dr. will be closed at Rt. 34 at 8:30a btwn. Cumberland and Perry counties for road work.
This is the first chapter, taken from my book "My Kentucky Heritage"and describes how me and my precious wife met almost 49 years ago. To order the book type in my full name Robert William Brock, Jr. under the books section at Amazon.com. My Wonderful Wife I could never write a book without expressing my love for my wonderful wife Margaret Sue Lefevers Brock, as she is the love of my life. “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother to be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh." Ephesians 5:31 Almost 49 years ago on May 9 I met my wonderful and beautiful wife Margaret, and each day I am blessed by all the wonderful memories I have that we have shared together. From the moment I saw her I loved her, and knew I wanted to ask her to be my wife. She was a cheerleader at Bell County High School, the same school that I graduated from, however I graduated in 1959, and she graduated in 1963. Even though I had graduated earlier than she had, I always attended all the basketball games, ...

Day 3- Releasing Glory Fires of Kentucky Day 3 began at the Red River meeting house site of camp meetings in 1800, we began began by listening to the birds and Accapla signing the old hymns The old house had all the musicians it could hold The verse that keeps ringing within me this morning is "The Red River horses are running- releasing the blood song" ( it was Derby Day in Kentucky) We sang the name of Yahweh for 10 minutes or more it just kept getting more intense! Our next stop was Bowling Green - there it was the jumping shout of a young autistic man in his teens singing FREEDOM That bought us to tears Our last gathering of the third day was in Glasgow at the River- a beautiful young worship leader named Jordan Who had been depressed after surgery on her voice- well, (she wasn't depressed last night) her voice and the worshipping company at the River were on perfect order as their worship produced a mist that filled the room, As we called bloodlines out of darkness into the light of their destiny!

The Family Cemetery And Burial Practices In Appalachia The Family Cemetery The family cemetery in Appalachia has played an important role in social life, local history, and culture since Daniel Boone led the earliest settlers through the Cumberland Gap. The early settlers were coming into a country in which there were no roads, no white or European presence, and no prior history by their own kind of people. It was a rugged and dangerous environment. In a very short time, accidents, child birth, Indian warfare, and disease began to take their toll. Customs and sanitary norms of the time required that the dead be buried immediately. A certain percentage of those deaths took place even before the settlers were near an area where they intended to stay long term. In those cases, the dead were simply buried in the next available bit of ground where it was soft enough to dig. Many of those trail side graves have been lost for centuries. At times of Indian warfare, it was also not unknown for the settlers t ...

Program of the Month - Elisha Wallen Longhunter The news of Walden's profitable hunts stimulated other men on the border. The fur trade was attractive. Men who loved the chase organized long hunts after their crops were in. Walden was probably on a trip of his own when one of the largest groups of these Long Hunters, gathered near Fort Chiswell early in June 1769 and took to the western trails. Most of the men were from the New River frontier, Rockbridge County, Virginia, and the Yadkin country in North Carolina. Among the leaders Kasper Mansker, Uriah Stone, Richard Skaggs, and Abram and Isaac Bledsoe, whose names became fixed upon the western country. They followed Walden's trail down Powell Valley to Cumberland Gap, and the Warrior's Path to Flat Lick in Kentucky. Here they veered west along the Cumberland River until it led them into Tennessee country. They established their central camp in Sumner County, Tennessee, and discovered Bledsoe's Lick, and Mansker's Lick, afterward notable in the history of ...

In mid-August of 1862, the Confederates launched a two-pronged offensive into the border states of Maryland and Kentucky. Leaving Knoxville on August 14, Confederate Major General Edmund Kirby Smith bypassed to the west of the Union-held Cumberland Gap and thrust deep into eastern Kentucky. On August 30, Smith almost annihilated a Union force of 6,500 near Richmond, Kentucky, despite an attempt to stem the battle tide by Federal commander Maj. General William Nelson, who arrived at 2 p.m. from Lexington. However, the Confederates won, and August 30 proved a bleak day for the Lincoln administration; coupled with the Richmond disaster was the Union defeat at Second Manassas in Virginia. Lexington prepared for Confederate occupation, and the Union soldiers destroyed government stores and ammunition before retreating. When Smith's 11,000 Confederates entered Lexington on September 2, 1862, they were cheered, and Smith wired the Confederate high command in Richmond; "They have proven to us that the heart of Ke ...
This is Indian Rock in Cumberland Gap. Native Americans often hid behind this rock and ambushed settlers passing through. After the Civil War it was used by bandits for pretty much the same reason. Early in the 20th century it was used as a billboard.

"More Union Veterans of Cumberland County, Tennessee" ~Just a few words about this part of our history: I am sure many will be surprised by the stories of Cumberland County's Union men. I know I was. I think it bares remembering that, like many mountain areas, ours was fiercely divided. Most of these men were not turncoats, they had a genuine belief in the cause for which they fought. Most would risk reputation, family ties and their lives to escape to Union territory above the Confederate lines in Southeaster Kentucky. Traveling at night, usually in small groups they enlisted to preserve their personal view of freedom and are worthy of our respect. ~Private James Davis of the 6th District enlisted in Co. D/2nd Tennessee USA. On October 25th, 1864 in Kentucky. He died of fever at Cumberland Gap on October 5th, 1862. ~Corporal John Davis mustered into service February 1st, 1864 with Co. D/2nd Tennessee USA and was appointed a Corporal on April 6th, 1864. Age 19 at enlistment from the 6th District and son o ...

he bleak border moors and craggy hills of the Scottish/English border set the scene for the birth of this notable surname Sprowl. It is one of the oldest surnames with a history which is closely woven into the rich and beautiful tapestry of the border chronicles. Professional researchers examined some of the most ancient manuscripts such as the Exchequer Rolls of Scotland, the Inquisitio, the Ragman Rolls, the Domesday Book, baptismals, parish records and cartularies, and tax records, and researchers found the first record of the name Sprowl in Dumbartonshire in central Scotland where they had been seated from ancient times. The early and middle development of the name showed many different spellings in the archives. Your name, Sprowl, occurred in many references, and from time to time, the surname was spelt Sproul, Sproule, Sprool, Spreul, Sprewell, Spreull, Spreall, Sprall, Sproull, Spreull, and these changes in spelling frequently occurred within the family name. Scribes and church officials spelt the ...

From "American Minute" for September 26th: Daniel Boone served with George Washington in 1755 during the French and Indian War, under British General Edward Braddock. In 1765, Daniel Boone explored Florida. He once exclaimed: "I can't say I was ever lost, but I was bewildered once for three days." In 1767, Daniel Boone, whose Quaker family had pioneered North Carolina's Yadkin River Valley, began to explore Kentucky. In 1769, Boone traveled through the Cumberland Gap in the mountains and spent two years hunting and trapping in eastern Kentucky with his friend, John Stewart. Indians captured and separated them, and, unfortunately, Boone eventually found John Stewart's body shot dead. In 1773, Daniel Boone and Captain William Russell were ordered by Virginia's Governor, Lord Dunmore, to settle an area called Castle Woods. Boone's 17-year-old son, James, and Captain Russell's 17-year-old son, Henry, were bringing supplies to Castle Woods when they were ambushed by Indians and brutally massacred. Lord Dunmor ...

Martin Van Buren Bates (November 9, 1837 – January 7, 1919), known as the "Kentucky Giant" among other nicknames, was a Civil War-era American famed for his incredibly large size. Though born an infant of normal size into a family of normal-sized people in Letcher County, Kentucky, he is said to at one time have been 7 feet 11 inches (2.41 m) in height. The Guinness Book of World Records and other reputable sources have him listed at being 7 feet 9 inches (2.36 m) tall and weighing 470 pounds (213.64 kg). Contents [hide] 1 Youth and Growth 2 Adulthood and Marriage 3 Final Years 4 Notes 5 External links Youth and Growth Accounts of his remarkable growth vary, but all sources agree that he began a tremendous growth spurt at some time around the age of six or seven, and was over six feet (1.82 m) tall and nearly 300 pounds (136 kg) by the time he was twelve or thirteen years old. This incredible growth reportedly so astonished his parents that they forbade him from doing chores aroun ...

150 years ago today, November 18, 1863 fighting continues near Knoxville TN. After the Battle Of Campbell's Station on the 16th, General Burnside brought his tired army into the defenses of Knoxville where they immediately began improving the fortifications around the town. Longstreet's Confederates followed slowly opposed by Brigadier General William P. Sander's cavalry brigade. The small brigade consists of the 8th Michigan Cavalry, armed with Spencer repeating rifles and a two regiments of mounted infantry from Illinois and Ohio. The rebels advanced with a skirmish line of infantry but make little progress. In the early afternoon Longstreet begins an artillery barrage followed by superior numbers of infantry. General Sanders is shot while rallying the Ohio regiment and dies that night. The Federal cavalry retreated into the city fortifications late in the day. Longstreet does not follow with an immediate attack. Casualties in this engagement suffered by the 8t Michigan Cavalry are not given but during ...
