I'm with Mike. Where did you get info? My family settled at the mouth of Indian Creek & New River. They owned much of Tower Hill. There is still a Keatley cemetery on that hill ....(the hill to the right and up of where Neely's farm is marked). There was a Village called Junta there @ 1919-1940 they tore it down when the damn was built. I have a family will that talks about the Neelys Mike. catkeatley@ suddenlink.net . Thanks!

The Biggest Part Of Crumps Bottom Was Owned By The Harmons, And Shumates, But Who Owned Up To The Harmons I Do Not Know. Did Not Grow Up There But Was There A Few Times.
