Letter: Rockhouse/Rockhouse Bottom

Jacky Pyles writes:
Small point that I think needs bringing up. The Rockhouse near Creelsboro is not Rockhouse Bottom. Rockhouse Bottom is within the big loop that the river makes at the bottom/left of Russell County on the map, so named because of it's proximity to the Rockhouse. Rockhouse Bottom used to be part of Cumberland County but was moved to Russell County because of the great difficulty getting to Burkesville back in the 19th century.
