Description of Lake Cumberland area
Rita Johnson


Lake Cumberland (a huge tourist attraction with over 1100 miles of shoreline) has become the county line between part of Wayne, Russell, Pulaski and Clinton counties.

The Harts, Millers, Coffeys and Bolens were all part of the communities most strongly affected by the flooding of the bottomland for flood control. Families living on each side of the river had long used the ferry or the locks to cross to see their relatives. My own grandparents courtship is evidence of this. My grandpa rode his mule from ONO in Russell County to the "crossing place" and back up the hill at Eadsville in Wayne County to "court" my grandmother, Bonnie Edna Miller. She was General H's daughter. It should be noted that all the Generals girls had gemstone nicknames. My grandmothers nickname of Opal always stuck. I don't think the rest of the girls names did. My grandmother told me this before she died. This was a distance of 8 miles. My dad talked about riding over as a little fellow to see his Miller and Coffey grandparents on the Wayne county side of the river.
