            This wagon sat on my friend Don Light's farm.  The farm was originally part of the Allen farm and Dozier
            farm.   George Sugg Allen was my great-great-grandfather.   The house (Allen House) lies just up the
            road about a quarter of a mile.  Although this wagon is not part of the original farm, I'm sure many wagons
            just like this traveled up and down the old trail about where it sits.  The road, or then trail, followed the
            river.  The wagon sits about 40 ft. from the bank of the Cumberland River.   It is the largest painting I've
            ever done being 4ft by 5ft.  It took me approximately one year to complete the painting in egg tempra.
            Don is a long time record producer and promoter in Nashville.  One of his discoveries was Keith Whitley
            who had a short but amazing career before his death.  This wagon came from Pigeon Forge, Tennessee
            and was given to Don by Stella Parton.  So much history to the farm itself.  I have the deed then
            Governor  of Tennessee Sam Houston signed deeding the eighteen acres to George  Allen for eighteen
            cents in 1826.  Around eight years later he liberated the Alamo and became President of the Republic of
            Texas.....then later Governor of Texas.  The only person having been governor of two different states.
