I have read that the only means of entrance into Dade county was through Jackson county Ala or Marion county Tenn until the 1930's. In other words, one could not enter Dade county from Georgia until the highway over the mountain was built. Is this statement definate for the 1840-1880 time period, or was there an alternate means, ie old logging road, mine road, etc. that would permit a wagon drawn by horses to travel from Walker county into Dade? There is a genealogical purpose behind this query. If a group of familys with the same surname were living in Jackson county Ala, and there is only one family with that surname living right across the county border in Dade, then it would seem to be logical that the family in Dade passed through Jackson county to arrive there. I am looking at some different circumstances in connecting two familys with the surname, Potter. Help me out, Sue. Phil Prince
