Bon Jellico Families

The John Nunley Family


    John Nunley moved to Bon from McMinnville, Tennessee in 1911 with his dad. John began working at Bon helping his dad, Alex at the sawmill at age 11; he worked as a boiler fireman. Mr. Peck, the sawmill owner, “…sometimes was slow to pay which didn’t set too well with John. On a certain payday Mr. Pack again claimed he didn’t have the money to pay John. It is said that when John Nunley came to get his pay with a pistol, he got the money.”

    John married Joie Hinkle June 1, 1923. John died March 16, 1979. “John moved a lot. It is said he moved out of one house in Bon and moved back in before the fire went out. He moved more times than his wife Joie could count. John’s feeling was if you were willing to work, you could always get a job.”

    Family of John and Joie Hinkle Nunley: Jean Nunley Loudermilk, Genevia Nunley Jeffreys, Jack Nunley, Virginia Nunley Barton, Nan Nunley Gibson, Edna Nunley Hart.
Peggy Nunley Whitsel, Sue Nunley Steely
