Some sources suggest Spring Frog came to the Chattanooga area in 1776 and actually built the cabin. His Cherokee name was Tooan Tuh (or Tooantuh); he died at Briartown, Indian Territory. Photograph from one volume of eight scrapbooks compiled by E. Y. Chapin, Walter Cline, and Frank F. Stoops of the Chattanooga Half Century Club. This portrait is included in the McKenney-Hall Portrait Gallery of American Indians.
