I have in my McEntire a note about Moses Wright:

May 22, 1830: Rutherford County, NC William Carson, Seriff, to Champion McEntire 223 acres on Maple Creek. From an order against Moses Wright recovered by Thomas Howell. Witness: James? , William Covington

To note: In 1986, journalist Jock Lauterer published "Runnin' On Rims." Sometime in the 70's, Lauterer interviewed Grover Robertson who was then in his nineties. Grover lived just a stone's throw from the Piney Knob Baptist Church in his 3-sided shed. Grover claimed the government had been interested in his land because "soldiers and Indians were buried there." Grover provided some genealogy saying his land once belonged to "William Guffey first, a Mr. Smart, and then W. P. Patterson and his sister, and finally Ol' man Jesse Scoggins who had it from 1836 to 1902."

(Allegedly Grover Robertson was on Kentucky's Berea College debate team in the Twenties.)
