TVA has a national office in the Washington D. C. area that is very happy to
supply information to anyone doing research. I called them one time when I
was there on a business trip, and they sent a large envelope of information.
There are several books published on the early TVA projects.
I vaguely remember the Widow's Creek going into operation in the early
1950's, but not well enough to be aware of any incidents such as you
Formerly of Limrock in Jackson County.

I was wondering what people knew of the TVA Project in the Jackson Co.,
AL. I'm researching the Maynor and Waller lines, and they had members
of their families that worked for the TVA. Ernest C. Waller fell off
of a 40 foot scaffold in 1951 and died at the Widow Creek Dam in
Stevenson. Rice Maynor, Henry Maynor, and Robert Arthur Waller all
worked with the TVA. Does anyone remember or have clippings of the
incident in the local paper? Also, what do you remember about the
building of the project. In addition, we have a couple of pictures of
them in a group photo, as well as one or two in uniform, but does
anyone know where we could contact an historical place that kept
records of the building of the project, as well as old photos, group
photos, etc? Can anyone point us in the right direction? Any help or
info would be appreciated. You can e-mail me at
