Stone Wall

Tom Hendrix wanted to honor his great-great-grandmother, who was a Native American. She was born in Lauderdale County, AL, but was forced to Oklahoma. She said she knew she had to return to the Tennessee Valley, so she walked all the way back. Hendrix wanted to honor every step she made, so he built a stone wall in her memory. One side representing her journey to OK, and the journey back home. It is the largest memorial to a Native American woman. It is the size of 4 football fields. Last year, I did a news report about his wall. Dad brought a Kelsey rock, and we were able to add it to the wall. It is a very neat place to visit.
