Another interesting story from Peggy Nuckles
What I found in my research was that the above home wasn't the only Cheatham house in town. There was once this one at 204 Grover.
In case you can't (or don't want to) read the tiny print in this article, here's part of it:
"There has been a great deal of happiness, sorrow and tragedy in the house. The first owner known to me was a Mr. Howard. He hung himself from the stairwell. Some years later as Mrs. Howard and her children, John and Mable, were getting ready for bed, she pulled the hanging oil lamp down to extinguish it - it fell and set her nightgown on fire. She burned to death."I guess that proves that having a fancy house isn't necessarily a key to happiness.
