Tom Collins, Feudal Lord

Record #:
Tom Collins was the chieftain of one of the most aggressive clans in western North Carolina, as well as a pioneer, and feudal lord of the Great Smokies. Originally from Scotland, the Collins clan swore the English as their enemies, and this continued with Tom, a member of the Watauga Association. He is now memorialized in a ballad and alcoholic drink.
