Genealogical Abstracts From Tennessee Newspapers 1821-1828


In this, her third volume of Tennessee newspaper abstracts, Mrs. Eddlemon has again attempted to capture all names of local residents from all types of announcements, ads, and notices. They are drawn from three early Tennessee newspapers, all of which predate the first complete Federal census, and hence, are of great genealogical interest. The material includes lists of delinquent taxpayers, dead letters at the post office, runaway spouses and slaves, and all kinds of sales of goods and services, in addition to the usual marriage and death notices. The papers covered in this volume are: The Jackson Gazette, 1825-1828, The Sparta Review, 1823-1825, and The Knoxville Register, 1821-1822.
