RE: [jacksongenealogy] Wagon roads in Jackson Couty in1837
- According to the USGS Larkin's landing was on present day Goosepond
Island just a little down river from the former Revere barge unloading
dock. The exact coordinates of the Landing is Lat 34.578 Long 86.045
Larkin's Ferry was a bit down river from the Landing, being located at
the south end of the island where old Roseberry Creek emptied into the
river. The easiest way to reach the site is by boat. This is a very
scenic spot since one is able to see many miles downstream on
Guntersville Lake from this location. The island is owned by the City of
Scottsboro but part has been sold off to land developers recent. A local
Cherokee tribe is trying to acquire land on the island in this area for
a Cherokee historical Center. This area is rich in history for both
natives and white as it also played a local role during the WBTS.

Richard, does this map show the precise location of Larkin's Landing?
If so, can you tell me where it was? Any remaining landmarks that would
help identify its location today?
Glory to God,
