McLemore Rock

The McLemore Rock is a rockhouse-in-formation on a dividing ridge between Skeggs Creek and Long Branch near the High Dry Cemetery. It is mentioned as a landmark in various deeds. Update 18 May 2004: The earliest reference I have found is in the 1853 land grant survey for Jonas Williams.

I would be very interesting in learning the origin of the name. As far as I know, the McLemore family neither owned the property nor lived nearby, but I could be wrong. If anyone knows more about this subject, please email me.
