The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is an International Biosphere Reserve. It was once called the wildflowers park. Cades Cove was named after kate, an Indian chief’s wife. Olivers were the first white settlers there, and the indians helped them their first Winter, or they would have starved. The Olivers are the photographers 4th Great Grandparents by marriage. My father-in law was Leon Gourley, born to Myrtle Gregory and James Gourley, also of Cades Cove, a once remote place prior to its addition to the GSMNP.
