The Move to Nacoochee - 1923
by Lewis W. Richardson
The editor is constantly surprised at the number of knowledgeable researchers that are taken in by a spurious document such as the "List or 61" that is presented here in another form. The least a researcher should do is to research the Census Data and the Deed Recordings. Rather, many take the List of 61 at face value. As such, an inventive tale of folklore is considered factual. A further discussion may be had by following these links to "Early Settlers" in the Short History Section and WCHS 37.
The value of this document is that it lists some of the people, but not all, that settled northern White County between 1822 and1860.
