. . Sometime during the War Between the States a group of Federal soldiers forded the Caney Fork at Holmes Creek. It was a difficult crossing, and some of them almost drowned. When they reached the other side, they were greeted by John Bond's teen-aged daughter, who yelled at them from her front porch, "Hurrah for Jeff Davis." Irritated, they yelled back at her, "Hurrah for the devil." "Well," she answered, "you holler for yours, and I'll holler for mine."
