My mother grew up, in what she called the forks of the river, in Knoxville TN. This is where the French Broad and the Holston rivers merge. It was all dairy farms back then and most of the folks living there worked for the dairies. It was lush pastures and the river flowing by made for beautiful scenery. Her maiden name was Monday and her mother’s maiden name was Terry. Now I am no ancestor expert but I believe there must be some Irish there. Also the fact that she was red headed and had freckles may have had something to do with me thinking she was Irish. So from someone who thinks they may be a little Irish, Happy Saint Patrick’s Day.
