My great great grandfather was Alford Wesley WRIGHT born 30 Apr 1838 died after 1924 in Cocke Co., TN. He told the family his (Alfords) Grandmother was an Indian named Chaney. He could remember going with her to milk the cows when snow was on the ground. She did not wear shoes and took her bare feet and would break the ice. He said the hide on her feet was thick. He passed along many wonderful stories about her we have written down. My great Uncle told me she was born "down around the Fort Loudon area of Tennessee." We thought she was a Yuchi Indian but we have no proof of it. Has anyone else heard the story about her being born around Fort Loudon or if she could be a Yuchi Indian? Great Great Grandfather Alford was quite a talker as was many of his descendents and loved to pass along stories. I have tried to record as many of them as possible. Would like to hear other stories about Grandmother Chaney. Thank You Patty
