Cowee Tunnel on former Southern Railway's Trashville
Division was built with convict labor rented from the
state of North Carolina. Crossing the Tuckasqueegee
River en route to work, the boat overturned and 19
chained convicts drowned. Without names, the
graves overlook the tunnel site. Perhaps in 1879,
records for the convicts' ID were clueless.
