    Since you asked … “A popular question asked by tourists is how Tenkiller Lake came by its unique name. In 1947, construction was begun on the Tenkiller Ferry Dam across the Illinois River. The lake was named after the Tenkillers, a prominent Cherokee family who owned land and operated a ferry service near the site where the dam now stands. Legend has it that during the “Trail of Tears” era, the Cherokee warrior was given his name by the soldiers and pioneers at Fort Gibson because of the 10 notches in his bow.”

    Damn Dave! Yer fulla surprises! I’d have bet $$$’s that you were mistaken about an Illinois River, in OK.!
    The ’51 CJ is killer too!
