McMinn County, Tennessee WPA Records



In the corner of an attic in Chattanooga, Tennessee, several hundreds of files lay gathering dust. Between the hunger of rats and insects, they were slowly being destroyed. Between the spider webs, dust, and mold there were records, lots of records ... church records, bible records, cemetery records, and miscellanous records.

Finally the true nature of the documents was confirmed: they were the lost WPA Records.

Here's a list of the items found in this publication:

  • The History of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Athens, Tennessee
  • A List of Athens' Churches, pastors, etc.
  • Records abstracted from the Beaver, Bonner, Castell, Denton, Grant, Guthrey, Hafley, Hampton, Hutsell, Jarvis, Latham, Lewis, Mantooth, Matlock, Mathis, Nankivell, Patterson, Perry, Queener, Reed, Rudd, Snider, Spradling, and Wilson family Bibles.
    (From the 1700s - early 1900s)
  • Cemetery Tombstone Inscriptions for the entire old Cedar Grove Cemetery (where the pioneers are buried).
