A list of patients of Dr. C.E. Reeves of Jackson County, 1901-1962 (currently the list contains only those for 1901-1905) by his great-grandson, Charles A. Reeves, Jr.

Robert Rogers Chaffin has recently published a book called Pioneers, Preachers and Patriots which can be viewed on Barnes and Nobel.com, or Westview Publishing.com or can be purchased directly from him [Editor's note: I got my copy from Amazon.com]. He reports it is a "cross section of 150 years of rumination and reminiscence coupled with family and Middle Tennessee History, much of it centered around Flynn's Lick, Roaring River and Morrison's Creek." Robert adds that he is the son of Bob Chaffin of Roaring River. His Grandmother was Ethel Young Chaffin, wife of Charlie Rogers Chaffin.
