I would guess that one as Siderite...although without any testing it is a W.A.G.

Siderite has a perfect cleavage in three directions, just like calcite. I see no evidence of cleavage. The first photo gives the impression of a hexagonal prism, and suggests a brown tourmaline, though what it would be doing in this place is unclear to me.

I wonder if this stuff is from the dump of a mineral collector, many years ago?!!!

The only thing that comes to mind on that would be the Indian camps and stories of the Cherokee trace that runs thru gilmer. I have been told of treasures etc.while growing up there. I have lots of artifacts that I have found over about 15yrs.of collecting.also some fossils so maybe it was caddo or Cherokee

Rocks and stones in medicine bags or spirit bundles was not uncommon but no way to know.
