I am not sure when this photo was taken but it may have been on Red Road where they bought a black & white log cabin house.

I was told that Uncle Jack went north to be with his brothers and earn a better living. 

He missed Tennessee too much and when he returned he tried to unionize labor forces and was ultimately black-balled from any job. 

He was even threatened. 

He told me that he went sent swapping in front of the courthouse. He started he started out with a "Case" knife and ended up with a red dump truck with which he began his fire business.

He had access to the wood scraps from several wood mills from which he would load-up and travel into the surrounding counties.

Every time he saw a chimney he stopped to sell or trade his fire wood, i.e, cash, beagles or corn, et. al.
