  • Notes 
    • Charley Talley Brown supported himself and his second family by selling chairs and other furniture that
      he made from the trees found on his homestead. He made his own tools to work the wood pieces.
      He would soak the wood in water to facilitate bending. He sold these chairs at Frank Bailes and
      Oscar Ellis' store on Big Coon and Little Coon Creek in the valley near the Tennessee River in the
      1920's. The chair making was done at his homestead on Cumberland Mountain near Hytop, Alabama
      in Jackson Co.,. The wood selected for the chairs was hickory and white oak.

      He was a blacksmith and had his own forge. He made his own turning lathe and tools. The lathe
      was powered by a treadle and the boys were the movers on the treadle.

    • 9/1/06: Letter from Ruby Brown with additional photo of Charley T Brown.
      This is not a very good picture of Mr. Brown. My husband Chelsey said one of his boys came from Texas and took him there. That was where the picture was taken. " Elbert"? possibly Texas instead of Arkansas. Review with Bob Brown.
