Cypress Creek-Davis TN

Cypress Davis-2

In one of those rare instances, nothing shows up in the newspaper archives about this community or this church, nor the Internet.  I located one article that referenced Rev. Henry Sale, reporting in 1846 the marriage of his daughter, Mary Louisa, in Belmont, and identifying him as deceased.

The church is no longer there, but the pleasant little grove was cool and inviting with a breeze blowing through the leaves.  This area is the former Longtown Community, and is near to Braden, where those church members moved.

  1. Sometimes those state historical markers only tease us with information.

      Yes, they do, but mostly, I have been able to ferret out details in some realm. I wasted way too much time on this one, only to learn nothing. Every time I would give it up and say enough, I would think of another way or another place to search. Possible the Methodist Episcopal histories would have it, but even when I hate to let it go, pretty sure I am not going to wade through paper copies of these books after actually locating one of them who knows where.😬

    Reminds me of the final words in a book I just finished reading, “and then we vanish”. This property is going to keep its secret.
