Tennessee Genealogical Records
Records of Early Settlers from State and County Archives
Edythe Rucker Whitley
This work offers important source data and is a major advance in Tennessee genealogical reference material. From records in the State Archives in Nashville, and from over twenty county courthouses, the record abstracts relate to over 18,000 early Tennessee settlers. There are Revolutionary warrants, grants and certificates of survey, will abstracts, tombstone inscriptions, deed abstracts, marriages--including the valuable Sumner County marriages, 1791-1813--and court orders and petitions. Many of these came from the counties of Bedford, Bledsoe, Carter, Davidson, Dyer, Franklin, Hawkins, Henry, Jackson, Jefferson, Maury, Montgomery, Overton, Smith, Stewart, Sullivan, Sumner, Washington, White, Williamson, and Wilson. There also are genealogical notes on some two dozen families.
