UNIONVILLE, Tenn. (WMOT)  -- Early American pioneers like Daniel Boone and Davey Crockett weren’t the only adventurers to brave the wilds of North America. Protestant Christianity spread westward across the American frontier thanks in large measure to the tireless efforts of so-called circuit riding preachers.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — There were new developments Thursday afternoon in the Bedford County farmhouse fire that apparently claimed four lives.

Investigators quickly located the bodies of 72-year-old Leon McClaran and his 70-year-old wife, Molli, following the Sunday night blaze. Officials also expected to find the bodies of two of the McClaran's grandchildren in the rubble, but haven't been able to find them.
