The Tennessee State Library and Archives

I spent the morning at the state library and archives trying to figure out where Elizabeth Bennett’s tavern was. No luck. But all of the people there were a hoot–from the guard who was telling me his philosophy on women and why you shouldn’t run around on your wife (it boiled down to “If you piss off your wife, who will take care of you when you’re sick?”) to the women who, one after another, tried to help me track down Bennett/Hensley/Hemsley/Durrard/Durratt/Durand.

What a nice bunch of folks.
