      Bill, thanks.  Some of the Thomases are shown working there as early as the mid 1800's.  Interesting that Roy worked there.  Along with Paynes and Sampleys.  A person in Texas had asked me about it.  Not a big deal but I would like to know more about it.  Wonder what the stone would have been used for in the 1800's?

      If it is the one I am thinking about, I worked there in the late 50's. The company was Nally & Boone and they were out of Horse Cave Ky. We were crushing rock for the Widows Creek steam plant, that was under construction at the time.
      The quarry was there before that time and was closed but N&B had portable equipment and moved in just for that TVA project. When the plant was complete they moved all the equipment out.
      Roy Hugh Thomas worked there for a while.

      Anyone know any history of the rock quarry near the intersection of Rocky Springs Road and Mt Carmel road?
