Additional info about the cabin and its owner: "Aunt" Orelena Hawks Puckett lived here during her latter years. When she was past 50 years of age, she became a midwife and assisted with the birth of 1,000 babies. She delivered the last one in 1939, the year she died at the age of 102. It was said she never lost a child or mother through her own fault. Sadly, however, none of her own 24 children lived beyond infancy.
