They moved with their 5 children -- ages 2 to 7 -- to a section of Tennessee historically called "Middle Tennessee." Their chosen area of Middle Tennessee was northeast of the town of Nashville, which the Cumberland River flows through. They bought 100 acres of land on a tributary of the Cumberland River called Middle Goose Creek, just east of the town of Hartsville. At that time, their land was within the boundaries of Sumner County, which later sub-divided off into Macon County, and then sub-divided again into Trousdale County -- in which jurisdiction it remains today.
