Calhoun, Russ (1998).

During construction of the Tennessee Valley Authority Watauga Dam, TVA workers roamed the valley and interviewed the land owners and other residents prior to their homes and property being taken over by the Tennessee Valley Authority. Those reports constituted an account of the people, the valley, and the time. This compilation is a documentation of the people of old Butler and the Watauga Valley from those TVA records—and from people who hold fond, romantic memories of that place and time. It documents old Butler and surrounding communities of the Watauga Valley that were inundated, institutions that were moved or destroyed, and families that were displaced or otherwise affected by construction of the TVA Watauga Dam.

My husband's family was displaced by the TVA and is listed in this book. It is a great piece of history documenting a community before it is wiped off the map. It is helpful in working on the family tree. One caveat - (which they mention in the front of the book) - this book is from handwritten notes made by workers interviewing families in the area. We know one relative who is listed in a household as Judy, when she is in fact Lucy (we can see how trying to read someone else's handwriting how this is possible). None-the-less, we have had numerous compliments on the book and have bought additional books as gifts.

Excellent account of displaced peoples of Old Butler with substantial genealogical application. Each interview date supplied which serves as valuable asset.
