Tennessee Genealogical Records & Abstracts, Volume I: 1787-1839. Sherida K. Eddlemon. 1999. Softcover, 8.25 x 5.25, as new, index, 243 pages. According to the publisher: Many researchers find it difficult if not impossible to locate information about their Tennessee ancestors prior to 1840. Although Tennessee achieved statehood in 1796, it remained a sparsely populated wilderness for years, and no complete censuses are available until 1830. In this new volume respected author Shenda K Eddlemon aims to 'close the gap left by census records' by providing researchers with a blend of rare tax lists, marriage records and other early source materials including the 1835 pension roil (surnames A-B). This volume contains useful information for the following counties: Bledsoe, Bradley, Blount, Franklin, Gibson, Grainger, Henry, Jackson, Lauderdale, Maury, Overton, Roane, Sevier, Sumner, Washington and Wilson. Eddlemon also supplies early records from Kentucky, Texas (Brazos County) and Washington state (Douglas County) to trace the migration of Tennessee natives. This volume is a must for anyone with lost ancestors from Tennessee.
