PERSONAL NOTES FROM READERS:

"My husband's grandfather died in a Monroe County poorhouse.  All we know is that  it was located out on hwy 68 towards Tellico.  We found  grave sites, but there are no names on grave markers. We met the owners of the property and they showed us around.  The sad thing is that there were no records kept."
