Thompson Ferry is mentioned in a land record I just picked up. Noted ferry crossing Clinch River near old Emory Rd. Looking at modern day map look north of Edgemore Rd Wolf Valley Rd which is close to Piney Ridge. I have not worked out the details but this would have been the general area. Margaret Thompson widow selling her dower rights to Eppy Lea. He ran the ferry till his death in 1883 then turned the land over to two of his sons. Barbara
