Overview

Davidson County, Tennessee, County Court Minutes, 1799-1803 by Carol Wells

This third volume of county court minutes provides a glimpse into the early years of the fledgling state. "Constant creation of new roads and ferries reveal the influx of new settlers to middle Tennessee. Unfamiliar names appeared in the minutes as the justices of the peace dealt with disputes, orphans, poverty, estates, wills, sales, apprentices, licenses, and the multiplicity of other matters that fell to their jurisdiction." This work condenses the often flowery language of the original minutes to a brief accounting of the subject brought before the court and the people involved. Many citizens who would not appear in other records may have had business with the court, and would therefore be listed in the court's minutes. The index lists surnames, places and organizations mentioned in the text.
