I am the author of the small book, Tennessee Valley, Texas 1851-1951, describing the settlement of the town now under Lake Belton. It is arranged by the family names and has photos of the earliest settlers. Anyone needing this info can find a copy at the Bell County Museum or Belton Public Library. I live next to the lake that covered up this farming community in 1951 and I had many relatives who came there from Tennessee and gave the town its name.
