Bon Jellico Families

The Alex Nunley Family


    The Alex Nunley family moved to Bon Jellico from near McMinnville, Tennessee in two wagons and brought the old cow along too. Uncle Alex and John worked for Mr. Pack at a sawmill in Bon Holler in 1911 and sawed the lumber for the first house in Bon. Since they lived in a tent there, when the house was finished they moved into it. Alex Nunley later worked on the company train roads and tracks. When the powerhouse was built to furnish power for the coal mining machines, Alex Nunley fired the Power House boiler, a job he held until age caused him to slow down. He then became a watchman and slept in the company store. Some of his children were: Ethel Nunley Johnson, Susie Nunley Green, John Nunley, Eva Nunley Cornelius, Wesley Nunley, and Mae Nunley Halfacre.
