Rhea County, Tennessee Deed Book F, 1831-1838


This volume of the deeds of Rhea County reflect the time period just prior to the removal of the Cherokee from eastern Tennessee. Several of the Indians had reservations on the north side of the Tennessee River in Hamilton and Rhea County. These were sold to white men and the Indians then moved south of the River only to be removed in 1838-1840 even from there.
