The Descendants of Robert & Margaret Shields
Author: Dr. A. Randolph Shields
Dr. Randolph Shields, born and raised in Cades Cove, is often recognized as the premier archivist of our Cades Cove heritage whose publications continue to be offered at various locations. Subsequent to the death of Dr. Shields, his children donated a quantity of this out-of-print history of the Shields family to the CCPA in support of Cades Cove preservation objectives. Many Cades Cove bloodlines are represented within this publication which will be unavailable when current supply is exhausted. ( Hard-backed; 320 pages; Published 1986)
Preparation of the CCPA Cades Cove Home Places Map initiated in 2001 to document general locations of former home sites, churches, schools, cemeteries and stores from the establishment of the community in the early 1820s until the last resident family, the Kermit Caughron family, departed in 1999. This 11 in. by 17 in. color, laminated product represents the area of the current Cades Cove Loop Road on one side and the Chestnut Flats community along Parsons Branch Road on the opposite. A 1934 vintage map is used as the basis with information derived from published and unpublished research as well as memories of former residents and descendants.
