Great great Granddaddy died here

My great great grandfather supposedly worked here and died here at Cold Springs in Dec 1920 when he jumped from a railcar that had got away from him. He was a timberman from North Carolina, who rode the rails all the way into Cocke Co, TN from Haywood, NC.

Living great Grandson

My father Love Moore was raised by Hattie Teaster (Harmon's daughter) and her husband Doc Moore. My father is 87 years old. I have heard the story of Harmon and Susie Teaster all my life and have visited their grave sights many times. My father has taken has taken us to all the stomping grounds Hattie took him as a young boy. My father now lives in Marion, North Carolina. He is truly one of the last.

Famous Tale

Wow! that is actually an exciting little story. I love how the people of the appalachia lived in general. I hope you provide excellent family documentation other than what the books or movies say, so that there is a very accurate account of what truly took place.

Harmon's Den

I read that Harmon worked at a mill on Dry Fork road in Del Rio, my great grandmother Jessie Mae Teague Barrett lived on that road before moving up on Round Mountain road, interesting he is buried at Big Hill Cemetery, that is where several of my family are buried at..
