Inscription. A soldier of the colonial army of 1776, and a veteran of the American Revolution, 1776-1781, Thomas Atchley served alongside private Andrew Jackson in 1794 under the command of Brigadier General James Robertson in the Indian Wars of the lower Tennessee led by Major Ore. During the State of Franklin, Thomas Atchley and his wife, Lydia Richards (1762-1850,) settled along Alder Branch, a tributary of the French Broad River, in 1786. The Atchley's were farmers and had twelve children. Forty-four years after their arrival in Sevier County, they with others organized and chartered in their home the Alder Branch Baptist Church in 1830.
