Past Times: Obituaries, Marriages and Other Selected Articles from the Maryville Times, Maryville, Tennessee, 1884-1890


The Maryville Times newspaper covered the Maryville, Blount County area located in East Tennessee, within sight of the Great Smoky Mountains. Past Times contains numerous obituary and marriage notices as well as other articles of interest such as weather events, social gatherings, family reunions and community happenings transcribed from the Maryville Times for the years 1884 through 1890. Over 2,000 people are mentioned in these pages. The information on people who lived in Blount County prior to and during 1890 is of particular importance because the 1890 census was lost in a fire in Washington, D.C. As an added bonus for researchers, most of the surnames are in bold print to make it easier to find people at a glance. A full name index adds to the value of this work.
