There are various tales about how Soddy and Daisy were named. One maintains Soddy is an anglicization of the Indian “Tsati” meaning sipping place. With Soddy Lake, the many creeks and streams, this could be true. A second states that Welch inhabitants corrupted the name of William Sodder’s Trading Post to “Soddy.” The Community of Daisy was named after Daisy Parks, daughter of Thomas Parks, who was the vice-president of the Tabler-Clendys Coal Company. Both Daisy and Soddy were thriving coal mining communities until the 1930's. A hosiery mill, turpentine plant, several pottery and tile kilns were active in Soddy and Daisy during the same period. In April 1969, the communities of Soddy and Daisy, extending for about 9 miles along U.S. 27, were incorporated.

Does anyone have pictures of the old Hood home? It was to the south of Wal-Mart.

The latter story makes much more sense considering soddy lake wouldn't have existed until the 1940's and the Indians were forced out of the area about 100 years prior.

The Hood family operated the clay tile factory in Daisy in the early 1900's. They lived in a beautiful home located in Daisy, just south of the old Walmart that was across from Sequoia Road. I would like to find out something about what happened to the family.
