"In fact, it appears that two Melungeon brothers--Tom and William Hulan--ran the ferry from the 1870s to the early 1900s. But the Hulan family seems to have been in the area since the 1840s (though there was a second wave of Melungeons settling in the area a little later than that, after a family feud out near Lebanon). That would make Bell's Bend one of the furthest west Melungeon communities."
Please get your facts straight before writing about history. I have researched this family deeply! Tom and William Hulan were NOT Melungeon! William came to Nashville from North Carolina with his parents, Jonathan and Eliza Trexler Hulan in 1846. William Ashville Hulan was born in Ashville, NC. I believe Thomas Jefferson Hulan was born after they arrived in West Nashville, TN. Jonathan Hulan was believed to be born in Virginia in 1797 to William and Sarah Crawford Huling. You can read about them in history books. Look it up. Eliza Trexler's parents were German. They were not popular in NC because they were against slavery. Some of their cousins were killed defending slaves in North Carolina. In North Carolina, they spelled the name "Hulin" or "Huling". Jonathan had many siblings. One of his brother's settled in Knox County, TN. and used the spelling "Huling". Another went to Kansas and used the spelling "Hulen". Jonathan and Eliza had 11 kids. Tom and William's brother, George Washington Hulan, was my 2x Great Grandfather.
# 10 is my favorite!!! #11 is great though!
Everyone was working and it sounded like none had respect for the other profession. The cabbies and the officers didnt respect the musicians. The cabbies and the musicians didnt respect the officers. What I think should of happened- The officers should of had the cabs move out of the loading zone so the musicians can load/unload. It is marked for loading not parking.
" the taxicabs wouldn't have a reason to be there without the music" That is right!
The space was marked and intended for the musicians to load/unload their equipment not for the cabs to park in. The music scene is very important to the city of Nashville. The cabs can be called when needed or circle around the area.
