The Simpson County jog in Kentucky-Tennessee boundary was error of Dr. Thomas Walker's 1780 survey party. Luke Munsell and James Bright resurveyed region fifty years later, but the controversy continued until survey by Austin P. Cox and Benjamin Peebles in 1858-1859. This stone-marked line set official boundary between the two states and ended an 80-yr. dispute.
