About Chief Broom Tauchee "Dutch"

The Cherokee Chief I know of who was called, "The Broom", lived somewhat later than the "Broom" described here. The "Broom" I know of was a signatory of the Tellico Treaty of about 1797, having been summoned from his home at "Broomtown" near the Georgia-Alabama state line. The Tellico treaty was signed at Tellico Blockhouse, which was near the present Vonore, TN, south of Knoxville, and on the Little Tennessee River. Broomtown Road still exists, and is so marked, although it has also long been designated as Georgia Highway 337. It runs from Menlo, GA to LaFayette, GA. That road also was once called, "Brainerd's Road", as it led from old Cherokee lands to David Brainerd's Mission to the Cherokee, on the exact site as the present Eastgate Center in Chattanooga. Brainerd Mission cemetery is preserved beside that site. ~Chester Martin, 8 November 2015
