In the early 19th century, about twenty five years before the California rush, gold was discovered in Coker Creek, and in other parts of eastern Tennessee and northern Georgia. These areas became the source of much of the nation's gold production for several years. This discovery led to the removal of the Cherokee Indians from the southeast. The Unicoi Trail in Coker Creek is part of the infamous "Trail of Tears" on which 17,000 Cherokee Indians were relocated.  WWW.COKERCREEK.ORG
