Scott Co., Va and Sullivan Co., Tn border.My father was also born in Scott Co., Va.Michael lived and died in Sullivan Co., Tn.If you have anymore questions let me know and I will try to get an answer for you.My brother wrote several booklets on Michael and the early Ketron's in this area.Don't know if he still has any or not, but is interesting reading.Good luck on your search.
