Does anyone have an old map that shows close up detail of the town and the mtn. At some point my ancestors owned and operated a hotel, hardware store, and a sawmill in or near the town or mtn. George Brown born 1846 (wife Anna Osborne) and their son, Martin "Greene" Brown born 1869 and his wife Alice (Baldwin)--were all born in Ashe Co, NC.
The family business was apparently confiscated when Martin got caught by the revenuers hiding bootleg whisky behind the lumber in the railroad cars. Does anybody know of any history or newspaper accounts of this (probably in the 1920s) ? Were there any homes or businesses or RR lines on the mtn during the early 1900s ? Does anybody know where the Baldwin Cemetery is located in relationship to the town of Whitetop or is it on the mtn ? Thanks for any information
