      40MT371 Yellow Creek Furnace ca. 1805-1862

      Construction of the Yellow Creek furnace by Dr. Morgan Brown was probably completed in 1805 (Goodspeed 1887: 773). By 1819, it was owned by Montgomery Bell, who, by 1822, completed the sale of the "ironworks" and 2,474 acres to Thomas Watson and Dr. John H. Marable (Montgomery County Deed Book I, p. 1076 and K, p. 306). After a flood washed out the operation in 1836, the property was purchased by the firm of Steele and Sox who restablished a furnace on the site, naming it the Yellow Creek Furnace (Goodspeed 1887: 773). This was a water-powered operation until about 1855, when it was converted to steam (Safford 1856: 52). A forge was added in 1840 that included four knobling fires and a water-driven hammer (Lesley 1859: 215).

      The 1850 manufactures census shows that Steele and Socks' furnace and forge had produced 600 tons of pig metal and 400 tons of blooms. Figures supplied by Lesley (1859: 133, 215) for the years 1855 and 1857 reflect an increase in production of almost twice as much pig iron and about the same amount of iron blooms. This source also shows that the Yellow Creek operation was owned by Robert Steele and Company and managed by J. McDonald and A. Brigham.

      The furnace and forge were destroyed in 1862 by Union troops and Robert Steele was killed (Goodspeed 1887: 773).

      Henry(Thomas)Tomlinson is the nephew of Clarrisa Tomlinson (wife of Able Jackson)

      John Howell Sugg is the father of Winifred Azalia Sugg (wife of John Jackson) - John Jackson is the grandson of William Jackson.

      We believe William Jackson and Able Jackson are brothers. Sons of "Killin"Stephen Jackson of South Carolina.
