The Palmer and Caldwell families were among those who lived in the
historic village of Cataloochee before it was taken into the Great Smoky
Mountain National Park in 1934.     

R. Gerald Childers discovered the Palmer-Childers connection in a book about Cataloochee
Valley:
Reflections of Cataloochee Valley and Its Vanished People in the Great Smoky
Mountains
, by Hattie Caldwell Davis; Mass Market Paperback, 1999.
