Blount County, Tennessee Deeds 1819-1833


In the mid-1800s, Blount County officials found the deed books of the county in a state of deterioration and they voted to have the books copied into new ledgers. After being copied, the original books were destroyed. Each deed contains the date the deed was written; the consideration for which the property was conveyed; a description of the property including location and adjoining property owners, when known; names of witnesses; and date of registration by county clerk. The deeds of this period reflect the hard circumstances in the early 1820s following the Panic of 1819. A surname index adds to the value of this work.
