|Joe Stephens||Mt. Moriah Cemetery|
An open air meeting will be held at the site of the old Mount Moriah Church, inside Anderson County Park, at 11:00 on Sunday March 22nd. Nestled in a wooded area, overlooking the Clinch River
channel of Norris Reservoir, the church site is situated at a high elevation just below the forks of the Clinch and Powell Rivers. Few graves remain in the cemetery that surrounds the site of the old church as most were moved by TVA when the Norris Lake was formed. Mt. Moriah, the first church in what is now Anderson County, was established in 1800 by Revolutionary War veteran Henry Ridenour. Over the years his descendants have multiplied and the Ridenour name continues to be common in the area. Unimaginable as it may seem to some today the modern community of Murrayville and the depopulated communities of Agee, Mount Moriah and Walnut Grove were fairly close to each other before the water rose behind the dam. An old fashion camp meeting style service is planned at the site consecrated in prayer by the pioneers and successive generations. Local historian Joe Stephens, a direct descendant of Revolutionary War Veteran Henry Ridenour will be presenting a historical program. Readers with roots in the vicinity of the forks, anyone interested in local history, and those who would like to participate an old fashion outdoor meeting are encouraged to attend.

Corrections made. If you wish I can transfer the memorial to you.
|Frank Murphy||RE: Mary Brown Photo|
Your so very welcome. Glad to help.
|DR||Mills Family - Indiana|
Interested in how your Samuel Mills family might be connected to my Charles Mills family. They were living next door in Knox Co. Indiana in 1850.
(via census 1850) Thank you

|Gwen Nolte||RE: Ridenour|
I will finish the transfers when I have more time. There is no need to transfer the memorials back to me. That is your family, and you might want to add more information later.
I would love to read more about the fire, so please send the story.
|Gwen Nolte||RE: Ridenour Fire|
Thank you for sending me the story about the fire. What a terrible tragedy! My family lived in Catoosa and might have even known them.
Before I continue adding the information, I have some questions. If the fire was on April 29th, why are the dates of death May 2nd? On George W. Ballard's tombstone, his date of death is shown to be April 28th, the day before the fire. Had the family gathered for his funeral?
Also, some of the birth dates on the tombstones don't match the data you sent. Please let me know which is correct, as I'm really a stickler for detail.
|Gwen Nolte||RE: Ridenours & Ballards|
Yes, I will be happy to update the memorials for you.
