Does anyone know why Chellokee Ridge is named Chellokee Ridge?
Chellokee Ridge seems to be in Whythe County, Virgina as part of the SW Coal fields.
I found the name in this quotation:
Resources of south-west Virginia: showing the mineral deposits of iron, coal ... By Charles Rufus Boyd
Page 38 Pulaski County - Coal.
.... It is really an irregular basin, from a line across the country just below Martin's, until you pass into Wythe County on the west, occupying all the ground between the ridge just north of Draper's Mountain and Little Walker's Mountain, six miles in width. It is much broken toward the middle by several nearly parallel ridges, such as Tract Mountain and Chellokee Ridge.
