From the Blount County Standard, January 5, 1878:

On the morning of December 31, 1877, a man by the name of Wehunt living in Wear's Cove, Sevier County, was splitting wood, when, it being yet dark, his little child came toward him, stumbled and fell, and the lick which was intended to split the wood, struck the child's head, splitting it open, killing the child instantly.
