    Yes, Regina, you are correct in saying that Paint Rock and the Princeton area would make a good Gatlinburg type area, but I hope and pray that never happens

      Yes, Regina, you are correct in saying that Paint Rock and the Princeton area would make a good Gatlinburg type area, but I hope and pray that never happens because it is so beautiful It would be a shame to waste so much beauty!!!!

      Every time we go there we are afraid someone has discovered the beauty and decided to change all that. I grew up on Lick Fork Creek that leads from Princeton up between Maxwell and Putman Mountains. I remember so many, many hard, hard days there and yet so many good memories.

      Three of my brothers and I went to school at Trenton and Princeton. We moved to Trenton in 1936 and back to the same area in 1938. I started school in Trenton in 1937 and transferred to Princeton in January 1938.

      We moved to Huntland, Franklin County, TN in January 1945. Why always moving in January? Because my parents were tenant farmers and daddy was always looking for a better deal and a better house to live in.

      My dad was Calvin Monroe Hambrick 1897-1984 born in Hambrick Sinks near Princeton, son of David Wesley Hambrick and Demarius (Vann) Hambrick. He married Margaret Eliza Anderson in 1916 in Jackson County, AL. Mama was born 1901 and died 1982, daughter of Thomas Holland Anderson and Nancy Emaline (Fanning) Anderson, living in the same area or near Princeton as my dad and his family did. They had nine children losing the first four children, three were daughters and a son and then lost another son who was next to last baby. I'm the only daughter who survived. I have two older brothers and one younger brother.

      I loved the beautiful school at Princeton!! It is still a beautiful school So many good memories shade out most of the unpleasant ones.

      Thanks a million

      I have always said that Paint Rock and the Princeton area would make a good
      Gatlinburg type area. It is so pretty going back through there. Several
      years ago my husband and I cut wood back through there and took a camera and
      made pictures of some of the old post offices through there. At one time we
      looked at buying land on PUTMAN Mountain for $100.00 an acre. Wish I could
      afford to buy land in the Princeton area.

      I knew a girl that graduated from Princeton but don't know her maiden name.
      Her married name is Katherine DUDLEY.

      Clay, I was born at the foot of Putman Mountain near Princeton, Jackson
      County, AL. Curly Putman, write of "Green, Green Grass of Home" was born on
      the top of Putman Mountain. Our families knew each other back then even tho
      I have never met him.

      I searched the ALGENWEB Jackson County website looking for info on
      Princeton, and much to my surprise found very little. I did find where
      Princeton was first named Birmingham and changed to Princeton 1n 1849. As
      far as I know there is still a post office there and a lot of great people
      but little else.

      I was told when I was growing up that Alabama tried to sell that part of
      Alabama to Tennessee and Tennessee didn't want it because it was so remote
      and poor. Now I'm beginning to believe that story, The great county of
      Jackson doesn't seem to know anything about Princeton or it's people.

      Even tho I do not live in Alabama I do try to visit Clay Cemetery located at
      Princeton because my parents, two sisters, a brother and my maternal
      grandparents are buried there. I have a sister and my paternal
      great-grandparents, great aunts and uncles are buried in Hambrick Sinks, a
      place named after them, my grandfather David Wesley Hambrick, a Civil War
      veteran is buried at Mt. Nebo Cemetery near Hollytree. Does anyone know
      where Hollytree is located?? Probably not.

      Would like to see communities on this site.

      Also checked the Jackson County Heritage book and found nothing. Guess the
      people in the small communities were not contacted or perhaps they were just
      not interested in being a part of Jackson County.

      Thanks a million for listening
