Could someone tell me where Penitentiary Mountain is located? I have Overton relatives buried there (somewhere around Sterrett) I think. My ggrandmother was an Overton who married a Whitener and all their children were born in Sterrett, or close. Gmother said one of her uncles (Overton or whitener) worked in the mines and she thought was supposed to be a union organizer. Supposedly was shot by mine owners while walking in town with his family. This had to be earlier 1900's because her youngest sister was born 1910 Shelby Co.Sometime later they all moved to Dale Co.
