About 4 miles west on Forked Deer River, Henry Rutherford, North Carolina surveyor, chose a spot as the point of origin for his surveys of the Western District in 1785. To identify the "key corner" he carved his initials and surveyor's mark on a leaning sycamore tree there. He returned in 1819 and established a settlement also called Key Corner. He died in 1847 and is buried in the family burial plot east of that point.
