1.8 miles S.W. near the confluence of Limestone Creek with Nolichucky River, a flat limestone slab marks the site where this pioneer was born in 1786 in Greene County. Before his death at the Alamo massacre in 1836, he had been soldier, trapper, explorer, member of the State Legislature and Representative in Congress.
