    "William Penn Redus and his brother Thomas along with a party of settlers
    migrated from Pennsylvania or Maryland and settled on the banks of the Elk
    River bordering Alabama and Tennessee between 1806 and 1808. They navigated
    the Muscle shoal in small boats and encountered many risks common to early
    settlers. They were the first settlers in what is now known as Athens,
    Alabama, and played a prominent role in the founding of that community.
    William was in the mercantile business and his brotherThomas operated a mill.
    Both built fine old colonial style homes and reared large families. Their
    homes have weathered the storms and tribulations on many subsequent
    generations and still stands proudly as monuments to a glorious past." (Lure
    and Lore of Alabama)
