I have a journal entry from one of my ancestors who was born in 1810 in
Sumner County, Tennessee. She says: "The first thing I can recollect was
the earth shaking [New Madrid Earthquake of 1811-12 which formed the
Realfoot Lake] and my eldest brother and wife running with me to my
father's house. The next incident I can remember, I was saying Prayer
after My Father. "
