  • Notes 
    • "Casual Harmon, known locally as Cass, was born in a log house on the Meigs County side of Blythe Ferry. As a young man of 17, he went to Texas and became a cowboy and worked in side shows as "Two Gun Cass". He would tell a story about coming home riding his tall horse and he would shoot his pistols in the air as he came across the ridge close to his parents home. He was an expert marksman.

      Uncle Cass and Aunt Becky, as they were known by their relatives and friends, raised their family in the Big Springs community. He was a successful farmer and was a highly skilled blacksmith and wagon builder. Becky raised chickens and would sell or trade eggs for other goods. She was avid gardener and always had beautiful flowers. She was a grand story teller and the grandchildren enjoyed her stories very much. Cass was also good with honey bees. He had several stands and taught his sons this skill. Cass and Becky moved to Chattanooga in their later years to be closer to their children. Cass died July 26, 1955 and Becky died December 9, 1963. Both are buried at Good Hope Cemetery." [from The History of Meigs County, Tennessee and It's People 1836 - 1997. Submitted by Casual Edward Johnson, 1014 Castleberry Avenue, Rossville, GA 30741.]
