strange but true........ our 5th. great grandfather Benajah Proffitt, once owned the land that the Cliff
Dwellers is sitting on now. He got 5000 acres from Jata Bird, a Cherokee. There was`no money involved, it
was`all barter.Jata got the best of the deal.......!! The park took most of the land several years later.
