Granny Bounds' Cabin
Picture of the Bounds' cabin and directions were contributed
by her 3-g-granddaughter, Mary Anne Hammond.
Cabin of Fereby "Granny" Dearman Bounds, constructed in the early 1800's.  
Her cabin was built with wooden pegs; it has had additions made to it.  This
was where she lived last, her original home was on Black Creek.  Mrs.
Bounds died in 1850.
