Cades Cove was a farming community in the Smoky Mountains that was first settled in 1821 by the Joshua Jobe family, and was home to many families for over 100 years. There were 685 people living there (132 families) in 1850. Native American Cherokees used to hunt deer, elk and bison in the cove, which is situated in and around an 11-mile loop road. We drove most of the loop and just stopped at one of the old cabins and at the Cades Cove Primitive Baptist Church to look around the cemetery.
