A true legend. Did anyone ever ask what he liked best?

Wrong but laughable. There is a connection between Greeneville and the Beverly Hillbillys though. Laura Bird, a Greeneville native, was in the running for the part of Ellie Mae but Donna Douglas won out and got the part.

There was one mention that she was from where Davy Crockett was, but the Clampetts also referred to living near the Missouri and Arkansas borders a lot more than this area.

Terry had a daily route that he made in the downtown area checking all candy and cigarette machines to see if there was any change left in the coin return slots. He came by the same place at the same time each day and was so prompt that you could almost set your watch by his appearance. He later gained weight and did not circulate as much. The last few times I remember seeing him was at the Hardees that was near Greeneville High where he asked me to buy him a hamburger.

She's not completely wrong. Granny always said she was originally from Limestone, Tennessee.
But as Limestone is in Washington County, not Greene, and as Granny Moses is a fictional character and not a real person, I really don't know that any of this is relevant to a thread about "Famous PEOPLE from Greeneville and GREENE COUNTY" in the first place.
Just sayin.

Thank you so much for thinking of me. My daughter found this comment and I wanted to respond even though it's a year later! I want all my friends in that area to know my story is now being made into a cable TV series....hopefully HBO! I've also included my friend Park Overall to the list of possible actors. If she is chosen, I hope she will be interested and available. I wish I knew how to contact her. Does anyone have her e-mail address? Mine is [email protected]

That's an excellent idea....thank you! We reconnected a couple of years ago on Facebook, but I deleted my accounts last year. I'll have one of my classmates get her e-mail address for me.
