Anne Smith (1762-1832) describes her trip from the home of her brother-in-law, Colonel Alexander Murphy in Caswell County, North Carolina (where she and others in her entourage had visited after leaving Abram's Plains shortly before), to the homeplace of her brother, Colonel James Webb Smith in Jackson County, Tennessee; this in a letter from Cumberland Bend, her brother's location on the Cumberland River, dated October 13, 1812, to her sister-in-law, Ann B. Smith at Abram's Plains. (This letter was preserved and is in the S. S. Downey Papers at Duke University Library.)

"Friday 25th Breakd. at Copelands. Came through the barrens. Meet Maj. Bennett, second person I saw since I left Caswell that I ever saw before.  Came to Walkers, supd. and ledged, very kind people, but the highest charges we meet with.  I did not begrudge paying their bill.  Satterday, 26th Breakd. at Quarlses. Came thro a large barrens and pushed hard for bro James but twas not attainable.  We found Mrs. Nathl. Graves lived on our road.  Night came on and we were in a deep valley surrounded by the loftiest trees, the undergrowth cane; hardly knew what to do when one of Mr. N. Graves negros came up and conducted us in safty.  I can no more describe Cousin Fanny joy than many other things this trip has furnished.  Mrs. Montague rejoiced over us like we had come from the dead.."
