I am not researching this family, just entering information from my recent D.A.R. magazine, September/October, 2005:
"The small, stone Rock House (pictured) built between 1835 and 1839 by Barlow Fiske, served as a tool booth on the old coach road that traversed Tennessee. Fiske operated a stage coach inn and stable nearby for the weary traveler. Andrew Jackson frequented the Rock House on his trips from Nashville to Washington. Other notable visitors included James K. Polk, Sam Houston and Frank Clement, all former governors of the Volunteer State. Today the Rock House Chapter (D.A.R.) maintains the structure and offers tours to visitors."
