1836 Jefferson County, Tennessee Civil Districts and Tax Lists


This unique publication ties the fifteen (15) "districts" of Jefferson County with tax listings from 1836, 1837, 1838, or 1839. By matching the tax list with the "District Map," a researcher can narrow the search for ancestors, eliminate those of similar names, and place ancestors in place and time.

For instance ... the town of "WHATEVER" is in District #6. Knowing this information allows a researcher to pinpoint cemeteries, churches, or surnames. The tax lists have been compiled from microfilm and are as faithful as possible to original spellings. A "must-have" for Jefferson County researchers.
