Regarding Valley Home. From the National Register of Historic Places registration form:
Early records show that this land constituted a portion of a land grant from the state of North Carolina to John Gray Blount and Thomas Blount in 1790. Andrew Erwin bought about twenty thousand acres of this grant and Jeremiah Cleveland, of Greenville, South Carolina, purchased almost fifteen hundred of Erwin's acres in 1814. Jeremiah deeded the land to his son Jeremiah in 1832. In 1833 Jeremiah (the son) married Sarah Elizabeth Stone of Maury County, Tennessee and in 1835 built their house, Valley Home.
