Mappy Monday - Taylors Bend

The map below shows Taylors Bend, Jefferson County, Tennessee (via Satelliteviews.net and Google Maps). This is a point of land cut by the French Broad River, and it is land originally owned by Parmenas Taylor.

The land was also across from an island acquired by my 5th or 6th great-grandfather Thomas Jones (both named Thomas, I'm not sure which one bought the land), and directly across from Cocke County, Tennessee (which makes up the south bank of the French Broad River at this point in the bend). White Pine is directly north of Taylors Bend.
I have an inquiry into the McClung Historical Collection in Knoxville on some potential sources for further information about Taylors Bend and this section of the French Broad River. I am hoping this may help provide some sources for the Joneses who where in this part of Jefferson County when Tennessee was formed.

I've featured this corner of Jefferson County & northern Cocke County in previous posts. See Mappy Monday - Douglas Lake & the French Broad River from February.
