The character of Will Emory, a half-breed Cherokee indian who was famous in his day (1740-1788) for helping settle the region while fighting alongside his American compatriots is our focal point. His reward for this collaboration was to be killed by John Sevier’s men at the Battle of Chota in 1788. His son Tom Emory (aka Long Tom, Slim Tom or Bullfrog) was said to have hid from the deportation of the Cherokee nation by Sevier and his troops during the infamous “Trail of Tears. Bobby Drinnon , a local seer, speculates he hid out in the caves beneath the cliff which became known as Long Tom Point, as it is recognized today on the charts of Ft. Loudon Lake. This stone monument stands today as a beacon to commercial and recreational traffic along the Tennessee River.
