Turkey George of bear hunting fame. His house was at the upper end of Cataloochee Valley and it was said that he killed 106 bears in his lifetime. He got the name of 'Turkey George' because he also hunted a lot of turkeys. One time he placed a pen over a hole he had dug in the ground. He also dug a little ditch out from under the pen and scattered corn in the ditch, into the hole under the pen. When the turkeys went in they couldn't figure out how to get out so they were caught. Turkey George crawled in to get a turkey or two and the brood flailed him with an inch of his life. Thus his name.
